I walked today with a deep heart filled and a busy mind filled too. I so needed to become empty of all the thoughts running through my head. As I approached the lake, I asked God to teach me something that might touch my heart. Out from the brush by the lake, my blue heron friend appeared, soon flying high. Moments later, a baby blue heron hesitantly followed. Mama led her baby through swooping, beautiful air maneuvers, crossing the lake, over the bridge and me, landing in high leafy trees before heading back into the sky. For a few moments, the little baby appeared alone and flew with great determination across the sky, only to hesitate when she did not see her mama flying beside her -Somewhat like we hesitate, when we wonder if we are lost and alone. Moments later, mama appeared. And mama brought her back to the spot by the lake where they began together - Much like our story with God. If we hesitate and surrender turning toward Him, He will bring us back to a spot of comfort and love - in unity with Him. What an incredible lesson to begin his day!
