😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. On Monday morning I read the following quote from Napoleon Hill, “If you cannot do great things, do small things in great ways.” In life, there are many more opportunities to do small things greatly than we typically have to do great things. Looking at these opportunities individually they may not seem to add up to much, but they can have a domino effect tipping the next and next and next until you start to see and feel the movement and flow one small, greatly completed action turns into. I envision a swarm of birds. You may have seen this before, how hundreds of birds take to the sky in a dance of flowing majesty and power. A magnificent presence shifting and stirring. In just an instance an individual becomes a massive whole being that can and will deter the greatest of enemies from pursuing its prey. How would we Christians appear to the enemy if we closed the divide, stop battling each other and united to become one flowing, massive, elegant, and grace filled presence against the attacks of the evil one and his band of demons? We are easy prey when we allow ourselves to be picked off one by one. There’s a reason why we’re shown by the disciples the strength of living within a community of believers. Find your community of earthly saints to soar the skies with. Watching this video, just let your mind and body flow with the birds, feeling their movement. I found it a little mesmerizing watching the images they formed. Watch it a time or two and let them take you to a place of loving peace with our Lord.
Bless others and be blessed.

I’ve been mesmerized by starlings for years, one of my favorite things to watch! And yes, as Christians, we need to ebb and flow more in unison and stop letting trivial distractions divide us. It’s such a beautiful thought. Thank you, Shelly!
