Wings of a Dove

any times during the past several weeks I have thought of this verse and longed to fly away and be at rest. I felt as though I knew the longing of the psalmist's heart and his desire to just instantly be away from painful surroundings.

The irony of all this is: With the Spirit of God I do have this ability--I can fly away with my God and be at peace with Him--leaving the world and all its earthly sorrow behind--I can snatch sweet moments alone with Him throughout my day and cherish the wonder love that He constantly bestows upon me.

I can soar to heights where my soul flies free. It is my choice--do I choose to remain in the depths or do I choose to fly away with Him?

If you are sinking in any way today, dear friend, I pray that your spirit will be lifted to new heights.

Sometimes it is hard to make what we know is the very best choice for us, but once we do, it is easier the next time.

A few weeks ago, I noticed these doves outside my bedroom window--it reminded me of flying away with my Savior. I pray you soar to new heights today.

 said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
   I would fly away and be at rest—Psalm 55:6

I pray all the same blessings you speak of to
be increased a hundred times over in your life,
sweet sister. You are such a blessing to me.
I love this precious picture of the doves and
the peace they represent to me. Sometimes there
is nothing as soothing as listening to their
cooing in the evening.
Sending lots of love your way,

We have doves that nest in the eves of our carport, and have enjoyed watching several generations of babies grow up and fly away. Blessings to you today. xo

I am amazed sometimes that just thinking about God's word can energize me...the possibilities, the promises, the protection. Thank you for the reminder this morning!

Oh, that I had the wings of a dove...

Yes, I know the psalmist (David? I can't remember) already said that. My heart just seems to be repeating it a lot lately. Oh, that I had the wings of a dove.
