"A Home Revealed"
|Photo courtesy of Doug Thomson.
Photographer Doug Thomson took this simple, yet very beautiful
photograph of a birds nest because it reminded him of a very
familiar passage of scripture from the pages of God's Word. We
both grew up in rural southwestern Virginia, and we seem to have
similar outlooks on life and our wonderful Creator so I was
delighted to receive this submission.
The following is his story behind the image and the
passage of scripture that inspired it:
This bird's nest is in a tree in front of our house. Ever since
started falling off the tree, I couldn't help but think
of God's word in
especially verses 26-27:
25 - Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your

shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for
your body, what ye
put on. Is not the life more than
meat, and the body than
26 - Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither
reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 - Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto
28 - And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the
lilies of the
field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do
29 - And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his
not arrayed like one of these.
30 - Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field,
is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall
he not much more
clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 - Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat?
shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 - (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for
Father knoweth that ye have need of all these
33 - But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteous-
all these things shall be added unto you.
34 - Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the
take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient
unto the day is
the evil thereof.
2008. I couldn't help but think, maybe God revealed this
put this scripture on my heart for me to relay it to your
share with the world in order for us to pay special
attention to verses
33-34. --Doug Thomson
