God's Special Gift

This Monday, I finally headed out the gate of our 40 acres.
It had been a while...a dozen days or so.
I hadn't left since the night I came home from my office, officially retired.
I didn't want to leave, but we had an errand.
Picking up a pup. 
Little else could get me to leave our place. 
But...what a glorious treat the Lord had for me that day. 
We viewed an eagle.

Sitting so majestic. 

Overlooking the Jordan Valley.

While sitting in the truck, looking at him perched nearby, he reminded me of so many things.


Our country.

Our constitution.

Our rights.

I needed to see confirmation of these God-graced foundations.

And I saw them in this young eagle.


It was a strong symbol that all would be o.k. in this issue-rocked world of ours.


We will persevere.  God will lead the charge.

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31
