While I was outside with my dog this afternoon I heard a rustling sound in a nearby tree. Thinking it was two or three squirrels chasing one another around the trunk of an oak tree across the street, I looked there but did not see them. Listening intently, my attention was drawn to a large oak in my own yard, where a squirrel was busily adding leafy twigs to its nest high in the branches overhead. As I watched it work tirelessly, I noticed that the squirrel had to leap from the branch through the air, nesting material securely in its mouth, in order to reach the top of its nest, a seemingly impossible task for a creature so much smaller than the nest itself.
I watched the squirrel for several minutes and marveled at the leaps he took to construct a sturdy home for the family that will soon inhabit his nest. Watching him caused me to ponder the courage and faith I will need to face my own challenges in the days and weeks ahead.
Jesus told his disciples (that includes us) that if we have faith as small as a mustard seed we can move mountains. Watching this little creature move leaves to make a home inspired me to keep believing that with God anything is possible!
