We happened to drive by these Canada Geese at a local pond, so I snapped a photo. They are eating, but do you notice something? One goose has his head up while the others eat. The goose with his head up is the lookout, or sentinel goose. When the flock eats, there is always one who watches for danger. They are extremly wary, and even with the watcher on guard, they will all lift their heads every so often and look around. They know it's not good for any one goose to keep his head down all the time. Smart geese.
"I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning."
