Soon and very soon

Anticipation.

It's coming.  He's coming.

Are we ready? How do we get ready?

We are well into Autumn now.  It is COLD outside. Most of the geese are gone.  Knowing that winter was coming, they began migrating south a few weeks ago.

Do you know why geese migrate in a V formation? This formation reduces the air resistance which means it is easier to fly.  The lead bird takes on most of the resistance, but when he gets tired he just slips back into formation and another goose takes the lead.  In this way, the geese can fly 70 percent farther than they would be able to do flying solo. 70 PERCENT!  That is a big difference.  Who would want to fly solo?

The geese NEED each other.  When a goose is wounded and falls behind, two other geese trail behind with him to help him on his way.  They have a goal to get to their destination and they help one another to get there.  When the lagging geese see another formation they join up.  There are no exclusive goose groups.  Geese are geese and each one helps to make the flight easier. The more geese flying together, the lesser the resistance and the easier the flying.

What a wonderful picture for us as believers in Christ.  We see the Day approaching.  The signs are all around us.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised;  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25

  1. I love learning about Gods amazing creatures. People like to think animals are dumb and we are superior but really animals are incredible creatures and so clever.

    Whilst autumn is coming your way with winter very close behind, this weekend we are going to get a taste of summer and I can't wait. To be able to wear a summer skirt or dress and enjoy the outdoors is wonderful:).

  2. Geese are so smart, especially the lead goose because he actually knows when it's time to move back.....there's a time to lead and a time to be lead.....AND we're NOT ready to lead until we're willing to be lead!
