Flying in formation

On my way to work today, I saw a flock of geese coming home. Definitely a good sign!! I smiled as I thought of the warm weather coming, and noticed one geese off flying on his own. How much harder it must be for him to do that I thought, when he could just be coasting along, in the protection of the flock. Interesting parrallel to life. Sometimes we find ourselves off on our own somewhere. There are times when this happens because we choose to go our own way. Or we isolate ourselves. Then there are times in which I find myself in. Times where it isn't you who has left the flock...but the flock that has left you! By that I mean that in my life a lot of people are moving. So I find myself starting over again...building relationships from scratch...not something I do extremely well. But I know ...that it is not good for man to be alone, and that we should not forsake the assembly of the brethren...and so, off I go flying to find a new flock!

Remember...geese live all over Ontario so you could come and visit your "Belleville flock" sometime!;o) You are missed here for sure!:o)
By the way...I love all of the pictures that you have on your site!

Isn't it neat when God teaches us through His creation? He set the patterns so long ago. Suddenly one day we notice it and realize its meaning. Then God smiles. :o)

Life is full of changes and we are constantly adjusting to them. God LIKES change - it brings growth and then maturity. We are in a change of seasons (physically) right now, as well as individually. Don't be left behind or left out. God uses them as opportunities for new experiences and thus, new growth.

With HIS direction to our new flock, we discover more "family members" and He helps us to establish new relationships. Our valued relationships may change, but they are not lost. It just allows room (and time) for us to develop new ones. Our lives will be richer for it. :o)

God Bless you!!
