November 10: Birds (Makeup Post)

Driving to work earlier this month, a flock of birds performed an air show. They swirled in unison, black and cream bodies flying up in tight formation and spreading out as they swooped downwards. They created a pattern in the morning sky, sharing their art with those of us bound to the road.

The picture didn’t capture the flock’s majesty; I was trying to snap a photo at a red light and got this just as it turned green, so I couldn’t stay to try again on their next movement. But these birds, dancing their way south, emanated the creativity of their Maker. I’m grateful for the beauty they shared.
