Flock of birds fly on...

by Sydney Franklin

If there's anything that points me to the grace of God, it's a flock of birds swooshing and soaring through the air. My favorite band Coldplay just released this song, "Fly On," with their newest album, Ghost Stories. They compare a flock of birds to how we think of love – always arriving and leaving before the dawn, never staying long enough for us to catch up. Fly on, ride through maybe one day I'll fly next to you. They keep going the way they were intended, stopping and starting as they feel led. It's natural and it's peaceful. It's understood.

And now I understand too. Now I'm going to fly. Alone for now, but maybe one day, solely by the grace of God, I'll fly next to you.
