The Great Stork

My Dear Child,


Storks are large birds. Males and females are identical in shape, colour and size. They make their nests in trees, on chimneys, towers, on roofs of cottages, buildings and rocks. The eggs are white, and need about 30 days to incubate. At birth, they have a tooth in their beak to break the eggshell. Every year, they return to the same nest, where they place many sticks to build nests up to two meters in diameter, and can be very heavy, with weights of 200 to 400 kilograms, others can exceed one ton. Everything that comes from God’s hands is perfect.


“Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons…” Jeremiah 8:7


With much love,
