To Have Faith Is To Have Wings

“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”

  1. I love the photo and the two sayings… as you follow me I’m sure that you are aware that birds are my favourite… there have been times I’ve sat all day watching vultures feed on a carcass, flying in and later off again… now this is a bird I consider the most graceful flyer of them all. I think some of the airplane designers have studied this bird and designed around what they see… I fly a lot with a friend in a microlite and how I wish I could flap my arms and take off… but that faith I don’t have and the face I have has enough scars as it is… lovely post…

  2. Thanks Bulldog; I think I’d rather watch the birds eat seeds though. 😀 I do watch the turkey vultures fly overhead some days. They like to settle in on our water tower in the evenings so we see a lot of them.
