A New Perspective

 

have you seen them…

the fledglings just learning to fly

they stand on the edge of the nest

flapping and flapping and flapping

they must strengthen their wings

before they take to the skies

and when they’re ready

they don’t simply soar

they beat their wings and travel a few feet

take a rest

and do it again

they may even hop for a while

when they grow tired

and then it happens

they mount up into the sky

and see things from a whole new perspective

they can do it

and so can we

maybe we’re just learning to fly

maybe we can only travel short distances

maybe we have to hop for a bit

but we must never ever ever forget

that we have wings

we have the ability to fly

we must do our part

always remembering we have wings

and trust the One who gave them to us
