September 2--Wings of Faith

Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she has wings.  --Victor Hugo

    What if we had faith enough to know it would get us out of any jam, difficulty, conflict or distress? I can't claim such a level of faith, but I'm working on it. 
    My dog Barney has stealthily approached bunny rabbits and squirrels on our walks, his nose twitching and muscles tense with excitement. The bunnies and squirrels are unphased because, like the bird in the quote, they can get away much faster than that leashed dog can move. 
    If only it was so easy as to just fly away from threats and danger...
