Swallows, Sparrows, and Covenants

Swallows, Sparrows, and Covenants

I saw some swallows starting to build a nest next door to us. They were also pooping all over our area, including the car and the screen door (like dive bombing…). So, I tore the nest down.

Afterward, I felt bad. As I was thinking about it, I remembered this verse:

Luke 12: 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

And this:
3 Nephi 13:26 Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Sparrows, swallows…

I felt moved to covenant, so I covenanted then: if the sparrows would stop pooping all over us, at least as if they weren’t there, I wouldn’t touch their nest again if they built, nor bother them.

Interestingly, they started building again the next day, AND… they stopped pooping on us, and there are now five or six little chicks! (They are still flying all over and around us.) We’ve all won!!
