He will catch us


Trust is the basis of life. 
Without trust, no human being can live. 
Trapeze artists offer a beautiful image of this. 
Flyers have to trust their catchers. 
They can do the most spectacular doubles, 
triples, or quadruples, 
but what finally makes their performance spectacular 
are the catchers who are there for them 
at the right time in the right place.

Much of our lives is flying. 
It is wonderful to fly in the air free as a bird, 
but when God isn't there to catch us, 
all our flying comes to nothing. 
Let's trust in the Great Catcher.
Henri Nouwen


Soaring, surrendered to the wind of His Spirit, 
trusting His everlasting arms.


 
Soaking in stillness with Sandy

abiding with Cheryl

Yes, my life is a "flying' one... nearly every day, every moment. And, I love birds for that reason. Would like to be one for a few days and cover so much of the world as they migrate.

Thanks much.
