On Eagle's Wings

Yesterday as we turned down the street to the lake, I saw a rare treat. A beautiful bald eagle flying toward us. He was so close I could see his majestic white head and yellow beak. I had my camera and quickly jumped out of the car hoping for a good picture. The door locks were sticky and it took several seconds before I could spring out. I calmed down remembering if it was meant to be I could take my time, the eagle would be waiting. To my surprise, as I got out of the car, he turned around and circled overhead several times making sure I caught his best side.

This was the first time we saw a bald eagle at the lake and the timing was perfect. Something had been deeply troubling me. And seeing it out of the blue was a positive sign to trust that everything would work out perfectly. Later that evening I read in A Book of Angels by Sophie Burnham that angels sometimes appear as birds. I feel certain that this was so with the eagle.

Then this morning we smiled as we listened to the weekly Bible scripture on the radio.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Many blessings,
