Holly from out East in the US sent in the below picture and story to go with it. I thought you might enjoy her inspiration.
“This morning there were about 30 Goldfinches on the 5 feeders that I have hanging outside on our deck. At one point, my dog barked, and all 30 of those finches flew away, going 30 different directions within a very small area of space in an instant … without any sense of congestion, or bump or fender bender or accident. It was immediate and perfectly harmonized disbursement.
I have often been amazed how they can fly through the woods, or through the narrow railings of our deck so quickly without mishap of any kind.
Reminds me of a verse from Hymn 263 in the Christian Science Hymnal:
“As the stars in order going,
All harmonious, He doth move;
Heavenly calm and comfort showing,
Comes the healing word of Love.”
Won’t it be nice when all mankind learns to “fly in order with each other,” like the birds have learned to do, without collision, accident or injury!
