After lunch, a visit to a nearby lake was refreshing and better than dessert. We were in good company. A flock of seven ibis had already arrived, cooling off at the end of the boat ramp. Rarely do these birds slow down, usually they're on the move, pecking away for food. A picnic table, in the shade of an old cypress tree, was a perfect spot to watch the show. A whole lot of preening was going on.
More ibis came in for a landing to join the flock.
At home, I looked up the symbolism and learned it was spiritual in nature. The ibis or Nile-Bird represents the initial letter of the Egyptian alphabet and is a sigil of the origin of language and all that civilizes humankind. The white plumage symbolizes the light of the sun. If the ibis draws close to you, a spiritual call is sounding your name. You have been chosen to enter into a new and elevated spiritual understanding.*
Thank you, ibis, for the encouraging message for us all at this time.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
