"But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you; And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you. "Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you; And let the fish of the sea declare to you. "Who among all these does not know That (A)the hand of the LORD has done this,
and His creation sings mighty,
i cannot gaze upon the trees outside
my picture windows
without feeling a sense of awe at what
He has done
and when i reflect on the past
two and a half years of
a failed church plant
and the desperate struggle to find a home in the Body of Christ
i whisper praise to Him for what
He has done
now having returned home,
amongst family and friends,
having found a church
(really, could it be true?)
where we feel loved,
i am humbled by the beauty which comes from
the strength we gain from one another,
the way in which we hold each others hands,
pray for one another,
take each burden upon ourselves,
when we do,
when we follow His ways of community,
What scientists have learned about why geese fly in a "V" formation... As each bird flaps its wings it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following it. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
Whenever a goose falls out of formation it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone.
When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wind and another goose flies point.
The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
Finally, when a goose gets sick or injured and falls out, two geese fall out of formation and follow the bird down to help or protect the injured bird. They stay until the goose can fly or is dead, then launch out to catch up with the group.
when we look to the birds,
follow the examples that He has placed for us,
we need each other...
thank you friends,
