What Pelicans Can Teach You
But as with most things, I realize that I have the wrong perspective. I look at this picture and my first instinct was to think that this pelican couldn't get the fish he needed because it was all so crowded below.
But now, I look at this picture and I think that perhaps he is full. He stands and watches from his perch because he simply doesn't need to be down there. How often do we check to see if we are really full before we partake? How often do we continue to partake without fully savoring that which we already have in our mouth?
What would life be like if we moved through life knowing that we are seen? And even more so, knowing that we have the opportunity to be full? Full of Him, full of the gifts and talents He has given us, full of knowing we were pieced together by our Almighty God? What if we climbed up on our perch, surveyed the surroundings, and just sighed with satisfaction?
