God's Love and NOAH

I sent this sweet email to a friend, and she loved it. She fixed it so I could post it on my blog. Thanks, Peggy.

GOD'S LOVE displayed through a special bird, NOAH

[The following Story comes from
Bob and Georganne Lenham of Wild Rose Rescue Ranch in Texas, home of Noah the Pigeon
even though many have received it in emails or seen it on the internet]
Wild Rose Rescue Ranch is part of a small team of rehabilitators in east Texas that specialize in different species of wildlife. The 50-acre ranch is a habitat for deer, fawn, rabbits, squirrels, armadillos, skunks, raccoons, horses, possums and birds.

[not the ones in the story either]

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.

Enter Noah—the non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove that we have here in rehab.

Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in—even sleeping in front of the door to the cage. Then, 2 days ago, I only counted 2 bunnies in the cage, so I hurriedly picked Noah up from the front of the cage so I could look inside. And to my surprise—there was the tiny bunny—under Noah's wing—sound asleep!

The Pigeon and the Bunnies

The bunny had crawled through the cage—preferring a featherbed, no doubt. Now, they are all together, and the bunnies are doing GREAT. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah's feathers, he extends his wings out to surround them—and 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!

Update on 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." ~ Bob & Georgeanne Lenham

Noah and the Bunnies

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 2010 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.
