Patience

I was sitting out on the patio one morning when I noticed a dragon fly (yes, I’m sure it wasn’t a damsel fly, which looks almost the same) light with its almost transparent wings on an iron tomato support. It stayed there about five minutes and then flitted away. It came back almost immediately to the same position, facing the sun. It would repeat this several times in forty-five minutes, always resting with the left wings down and facing the sun.

To me this was a mystery, though I’m sure in the annals of nature there is an explanation. We go through life meeting many such enigmas, and yet we are sure we understand life and the possibility of God.
