Wings Like Eagles (or Maybe Hawks?)
The photo featured above is taken from our dining room window; Danny has a perfect view of it from his computer desk chair. We are conversing away one afternoon when, out of the corner of my eye, I catch something BIG winging its way over our deck. Hoping beyond hope that it has landed nearby, I lean cautiously toward this same window.
Hallelujah! It's a hawk!
"Go get my camera," Danny whispers, as if the hawk can hear him. I hasten to the bedroom to fetch it, praying all the while that this majestic bird will still be there upon my return.
Prayers are answered!
And Danny's photos are so stunning, I'm compelled to share them with you. I've accompanied them with scripture that I pray invites you to meditate upon God's Word and revel in the marvels of His creation.
I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. ~Psalm 61:4
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. ~Isaiah 40:30-31
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? ~Matthew 6:26
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. ~Matthew 23:37
You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself. ~Exodus 19:4
We are so blessed by our recent visit by this hawk. I hope you, too, are keeping your hearts, minds and souls open to God's wonders in all of His works.
