Snow Faith

This morning the world was still covered from yesterday's snow. It was a cold, white, silent morning. Out there on a fence post amid the snow is a bird house I had put up in warmer time. A bluebird was busy bring sticks and stuff to the bird house; building a nest for the spring, making ready for the new birth with a faith that took little notice of the snow.

For me, it was a good lesson both in my faith walk and in my training. "We walk by faith and not by sight." We train by faith that the effort, the energy will bring us from our cocoons to be the butterflies God would have us be.

Oh for the faith of a bluebird.
