We Can Learn a lot from a Kite

- Flying Free, Fully Reliant on God
I was at the beach when some neighboring beach-dwellers whipped out a kite; the sight added to my zen-like state of bliss. (I love the beach).
Had a few thoughts while witnessing this little happy occasion.
Wanna here em’? Here they go….
Gazing at the kite as it did its flying/floating dance against the blue sky….with no will of its own, yet completely free….fully subject to the ebbs and flows of wind and gravity, yet completely at ease…….
I realized what it might be like to “Let Go and Let God.” The kite is a powerful image of Faith, and turning your will over to the to care of our Loving God.
Because God will be there, our Shepard; an invisible string connecting us to something safe. He may not be able to control our direction 100% of the time…because we live in a world where the wind blows and the rain must fall.
BUT HE WON’T LET YOU GO. YOU ARE HIS.
And just like we find pleasure in flying Kites, he takes pleasure in connecting with us, his children!
PLUS….Kites are super adorable!
