This lone feather was floating at the water's edge this morning.  I wondered whether it had come from one of the gray herons that live there.  I thought about the function of feathers, as the Creator fashioned them.  A quick search on my phone told me they have three basic uses: flight, insulation and nest lining.  So feathers play a role in bringing young into the world, keeping the bird warm and waterproof and allowing the bird to carry out its primary activity of flying.  Of course one feather can't do all takes a lot of feathers together.  Feathers have a natural beauty as well and men have used them as quill pens for fact the word "pen" comes from the Latin "penna" which means feather.  How wonderfully efficient our Lord designed the accomplish so much in a lightweight package.  And how wonderful has the Creator been in our design as well, caring for us from the cradle, keeping us insulated from harm and teaching us to fly to Him and for Him.
Psalm 91:He will shield you with his wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor.
