I took this photograph a couple of weeks ago. A gathering of starlings on our roof, enjoying the warm sunshine! A murmuration! What a wonderful name; it rolls around my consciousness and makes me smile.
With all that has and is going on in our lives in these days this just captivated me, and I stood and watched for a little while, with all the coming and going. Even the rather intense song had me smiling. Their own tune, done in their own way!
We are each unique in our own way and this moment will stay in my thoughts for a long time. There was a carefree ‘joie de vivre’ about the whole moment. It has made me reflect on my own walk with God. I need to relax a little more and root myself in the moment to be enjoyed and offered. The Starlings have it sussed out…how much more does the Creator want us to bathe in the light of his presence. In simple moments, not complicated prayers.
Blessings and peace be with you.
