Only God Could Create…

Mates for Life…

TwoDoveOnOurDeck

These two beautiful Mourning Doves have adopted us to be their retired parents. They spend time in our trees, on our deck, our rails and anywhere else they can hang out together. They are never separated. I didn’t get the picture but a few minutes earlier they spent about 10 minutes grooming each other’s feathers. The Mourning Dove mates for life after raising two baby doves at a time and both doves care for their young. If one dove dies, the other dove visibly mourns the loss of its mate. Here is more information from Wikipedia on Mourning Doves.

It’s no wonder that God’s Word speaks fondly and powerfully of the dove, who God Himself created!
Song of Solomon 2:14

“O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret place of the steep pathway, Let me see your form, Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your form is lovely.”
Matthew 10:16

“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.
Matthew 3:16

After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him,
Luke 3:22

and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”
John 1:32-34

John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him. “I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, `He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’ “I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God.”
