Meek and Innocent

My Dear Child,


Today I want to talk to you about the pigeon. The pigeon is covered with feathers, its colors can be white, gray, brown, black or other. Did you know that, unlike larger birds, pigeons can fly almost straight upwards? A pigeon has about 10,000 feathers. That’s a lot of feathers on a small body! Pigeons are the only birds in the world that don’t have to lift up their heads to swallow water. They eat grains, fruits, vegetables and seeds. They have the ability to see more than 41 kilometers away, that’s very far away! They use small twigs to build their nests, which are always well hidden. They are able to see colours like us and can travel more than 1,000 kilometers in a single day. Pigeons are used as messengers. They have a smooth, soft and noble appearance. God wants us to be meek and humble.  “Be innocent as doves.” Matthew 10:16


With love, Mom/Dad
