There are all kinds. Birds who soar. Birds who hover. Birds who zig zag and birds who don't. I love to watch gulls and pelicans glide above the ocean. The breezes carry them. They flap their wings, tuck their feet in and off they go. The wind lifts them up and carries them until they change something. Birds are literally light as a feather, so they can be lifted up. No bladder, no babies growing within the moms, and hollow bones are just a few reasons why they are so easy to lift and carry.
Hebrews 12:1 "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." (NIV)
