Fruit of the Spirit: Gentleness

How do you get across the idea of "gentleness" visually? A nest. Martha and Jeanne talked with me about the word for Sunday, the fruit of the spirit called "gentleness" and arrived at a nest. Why a nest? Where is an egg or bird safer than in a nest, being brooded over, fed and protected by the mother? And a nest is an image of a fierce and strong "gentleness" that will readily use force to protect the young, to keep the nest safe.
When I am with Jesus, I know both his gentleness with me, his strength and safety.
