Heavenly Reminder

I paused in my head-long rush out the door this evening and watched a hummingbird in its flight.  It came quite close and drank from the nectar so lovingly prepared.  When life is feeling as rushed as a hummingbird’s flight is fast, stop.

Stop and remember that to keep going at the pace set by this amazing little bird, they have to refuel very often.  Hummingbirds will feed 5 to 8 times every hour for 30 to 60 seconds at a time.  For us to take to heart this lesson from our little sisters, perhaps we ought to try praying in the same pattern.

Or, if that is too much to keep track of, simply offer a wordless prayer of thanksgiving to God each time you see a hummingbird.

Shalom,
