Heron, blue

I love these birds
so much of what they are is
just the opposite of me:
quiet, still waiting and watching
for the opportunity
knowing that God sends the
fish, or frog, or crayfish along
as sure as day follows night.
I stress and struggle
and jump the gun
run in circles
and wear myself out.

"Lord, make me more serene and willing to wait on you"

I don't think there is anyone who could not benefit from being a bit more patient. Thanks for stopping by Wednesay's Off.

Hi David,

That's a good prayer, and realizing that the Herons have something to teach seems like a step towards an answer.

I appreciate that you talk through your struggles on your blog - I can identify with much of what you write.
