Hello once again. Nothing much has happened lately with the christmas play. However the title has just been announced. It is called A Big Misunderstanding. And let me tell you, this play is full of misunderstandings! At church this morning, our pastor has announced to the rest of the congregation that we will be doing the play. The casting call is scheduled for the 14th of next month (July). I hope we get lots of participation.
A few days prior to today, I received my very first copy of the book! I thought that was pretty cool. Soon we will starting marketing (that's what my mom will mostly be doing). The book is available on websites such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, but if you want the best price, go to Authorhouse.com and look up the King on a Cross (but why do that when all you have to do is press this link Author House).
At our church (Vassar Road Baptist Church) we will also be doing other events for the summer (haven't thought of the right name yet) sometime after VBS, and another event in the fall called Trunk-or-Treat (I'll go more into detail about that when the time comes).
On a ledge on our back "patio", we have a little robin (we named her Rehab) who decided to make her nest there. This is her second time since we've been in this house. Her first brood (of four) fared well. Now she is on her second brood of the year, also with four chicks. At least there were four chicks. When we came home the other day, we saw the little body of a robin chick. Unfortunately, it was already dead. My mom thinks maybe it stretched out of the nest too far and fell out. I think either 1) it tried to fly early and fell to its death (somewhat unlikely), or 2) it died in the nest and mommy robin removed it, or 3) the more horrific theory: it was kicked out by its siblings and plummeted to its death. Sibling rivalry is common in some bird species when food is scarce. Pelicans and herons do it. I'm not sure if robins do this, I don't think so, but I will do my research. Either way, the baby robin chick is dead and is a grim reminder of the sin-cursed world we live in. The original earth was perfect as described in the book of Genesis in the Bible until Adam and Eve rebelled against God and brought sin and death into the world. However, we can also remember that Jesus will come back and restore His creation one day!
That's all for now! See you next time!
PS: The other three baby robins are doing well. They still have downy feathers
