me: oh, right
me: hey--i'll tell you about my gift from God...
Lacy: yes! please do
me: i love birds. captain obvious. we all know that... but my favorite bird experiences are when they take off together in a windy ball and go everywhere perfectly and beautifully communicating with each other... it's magic
it makes me gasp EVERY time... SO BEAUTIFUL! and i always thank God when I see that, because I feel really close to Him when I see that... WELL!!!... TODAY....1
Lacy: *listening...
me: I drove past the best place to see them, and LITERALLY, God gave me that like 20 times. I parked the car and got out... and they flew right towards me!!! and almost right into me and then again and again. it was beautiful!
Lacy: 20 times...*smiles* Awww....that's really precious. Sounds like a direct gift exactly...
me: there were definately at least 2000 birds...
so they were all doing their clusters intermingling..
Lacy: wow....seriously.
me: i couldn't believe my eyes, they were everywhere!! i just smiled up at the sky to God
He made me smile!
