This one makes you wonder who are the smart  ones.
How we treat the weakest among us, is how we will be judged.

Noah the Dove

These little bunnies, about 6 days old, were  attacked by a dog and orphaned. Two out of the litter of five did not  survive, and these three were not doing very well.

Noah is a non-releasable,  one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove that is in the rehab centre. Noah kept  going over to the bunny cage and looking in — even sleeping in front of  the door to the cage.

Then, suddenly, there were only two bunnies in  the cage.  But when Noah moved a bit from the front of the cage to  everyone’s surprise…there was the tiny bunny…under Noah’s wing…sound  asleep! That little bunny rabbit had crawled through the cage, preferring  a featherbed, no doubt to snuggling up with its  littermates!

Now, they are all together and the bunnies are  doing GREAT. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah’s feathers, he  carefully extends his wings out to surround them and then they snuggle.  When one of them moves and they start sticking out here and there, he  gently pushes them back under him with his beak!  It is beautiful and  amazing to see…

This is what God does with us when we need  the warmth and love He offers. He gathers us under His loving wings to a  warm cradle of protection. All we need do in return is give Him the thanks  and praise for being with us.


Update on Noah the  pigeon:
We are Bob and Georganne Lenham of Wild Rose Rescue Ranch in  Texas, home of Noah the Pigeon.
After finding many posts online  featuring Noah and the bunnies and reading about the many lives he has  touched (his story has been forwarded around the world) we thought we’d  post a follow-up and a few new photos.
We knew there was something  special about Noah the moment we saw him.
Although the bunnies seem to  be his favorite, Noah helps out with many rescue babies here at the Wild  Rose Rescue Ranch…

Now, Noah helps out with many  rescue babies here at the ranch…
How wonderful it is to have a  full-time soft-feathered nurturer here at the rescue ranch! He cuddles  with all the babies as they snuggle under his warm feathers…and he  "coos" as if singing them to sleep with a lullaby.
Noah is truly, truly  a God-send.
He will cover you with His feathers
And under His  wings you will find refuge.
Psalm 91:4
Please look for the new book   "Noah and The Bunnies" to be released in Summer ’09 from "A String  of Pearl’s Tails." Each book in the series tells the story of a wildlife  baby here at Wild Rose Rescue Ranch.

The purpose  of God, will never contradict the promises of  God.
