I took these photos a couple years ago and seem appropriate for this week as we think about the new life Jesus gave us.
I’ll post the remainder of the birds hatching on Wednesday. To my great joy, this same tree is where we currently have two birds building a new nest this Spring. It’s in a precarious spot for predators seeking the eggs, but if I post the pictures in a month, you’ll know those eggs survived.
Every now and then, the little things I pass by as “ordinary” suddenly appear unique and amazing. Today, it’s the egg.
Take 60 seconds and really think about the egg! Who thought to take the egg from the chicken, crack it open and decide to eat it? According to Incredibleegg.org, Europe had domesticated hens back in 600 BC. There are some very interesting factoids on that site, you might want to check it out!
Who first decided the egg might be good by tossing the whole thing, shell and all, in boiling water to make a soft boiled egg?How did a fried egg sandwich become so popular at restaurants? Who decided to crack open the egg and pour it onto a flat skillet? How about the hard boiled egg? Used now in cobb salad, deviled eggs, egg salad, radiant Easter baskets and just for sheer enjoyment!Eggs are now even used in beauty treatments!
Enjoying the EGGstraordinary in the ordinary today! 🙂
