Crows in a Tree
This evening on my way home it was just before dark and the wind was blowing hard. I rode into it and was thankful I was not on a fixie and had the option to downshift. And as I pedaled I watched a large flock of crows as they weaved and floated in the wind above me (is that the correct term...flock of crows?). When I arrived home they were still overhead and I stood and watched them for a few minutes...they were beautiful and graceful. They eventually landed on various trees and swayed in the wind for a few moments before starting off again and heading towards Lake Erie. They looked so peaceful...it made me peaceful.
26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
Matthew 6:26-27 (NIV)
