I've been thinking about changing my template for a while now and yesterday I found an image that suits me for this season. The Canadian Geese are flying south now for the winter and I feel a connection with them. The Canadian Geese when flying in their "V" formation are so beautiful to witness and they possess qualities that I hope to have on any given day of the week.
UNITY - The "V" formation that they fly in has something to do with keeping all together (I guess) and conserving energy because of air currants/flow or aerodynamics stuff, anyways... I'm sure you get the point.
LEADERSHIP - The leader leads with strength and gracefulness and when tired lets another goose lead. Taking turns/sharing the load basically.
ENCOURAGEMENT - The ones behind "honk" to encourage the one(s) in front.
I know there are others but I can't remember them at the moment, but I know that these characteristics are ones that I need to work on.
So, in some way one could say that Christ is imprinted in not just us but in those geese that you might see flying over head in the coming days.
Those geese posses Christ-like qualities that I pray for God to strengthen in me.
1. To be unified with my husband and with other Christians.
2. To be a good leader/teacher in the home and to possess the wisdom to know when to share the load (ask for help) with my husband and with church.
3. To be an encourager to my husband, children and to everyone I meet.
I'm glad I can't remember the others, because that's a tall order all on its own.
