flit: (verb) to move quickly, either abruptly or lightly, from one place to the next. Used in Northern England and Scotland, from the Old Norse word flytjask, meaning: to move, and the Old English word  flēotan, meaning: to float. Synonyms: dance, flicker, flutter, dart. You may have heard it reference to birds (Proverbs 26:2 “like a flitting sparrow). You might have also heard of a moonlit flit, which hopefully won’t be the case on here.
