It's that time of year again, time for me to be on Swan Watch!!! This means the female swan has made her nest and been sitting on it, can you see it? It is large and made of sturdy sticks. While she sits, the male swims in front of her, back and forth, back and forth, like he is guarding her. Perhaps he is. These swans are at our local park, and you may remember I posted their babies last year, so cute! If you didn't see them, you can click HERE for that post. I hope to get to the park this year when they are even younger! Swans are a mystery to me, I am so clumsy and they are so graceful.
“Out of the generosity of Christ, each of us is given his own gift… He handed out gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, and pastor-teacher to train Christ's followers in skilled servant work, working within Christ's body, the church, until we're all moving rhythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to God's Son, fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ”
