I saw these seagulls flying around the other day...swooping down and grabbing small pieces of bread that someone had thrown on the street. They seemed so graceful and at peace; it was a sort of aerial dance. It reminded me of this following passage (which I have often found inspiring):
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look 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? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"
Matthew 6:25-27 (NIV)
