Are you ready to fly?

Heart Murmurs

In the past week, this image has been on my heart.

We are familiar with this picture of helpless baby birds, screaming for food from harried and worn parents who fly back and forth finding food and stuffing it into their hungry, gaping mouths as quickly as possible. Blind and naked, these babies need feeding in order to survive.

Obvious, right?

My question is, how long do baby birds stay like that? Do we see these birds still blind, naked and screaming for someone to feed them months later?

Hardly. We expect to see these baby birds grow, get feathers, and fill out. Then they stand on the edge of the nest, testing their freshly feathered wings and one day, they fly out into the world.

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
