I was thinking how the Bible uses the Eagle as a symbol and it is our Nations Bird. As I was looking on the Net for information about the eagle
I found this poem and thought I would share. I have heard it before, but sometimes it is good to be reminded of things we need in our life.
"Soar Like an Eagle"
Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is
approaching long before it breaks? The eagle will fly
to some high spot and wait for the winds to come.
When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the
wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm.
While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring
The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses
the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds
that bring the storm. When the storms of life come
upon us - and all of us will experience them - we can
rise above them by setting our minds and our belief
toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us. We
can allow God's power to lift us above them.
God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that
bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and disappointment
in our lives. We can soar above the storm.
Remember, if we are really honest to ourselves,
it is not the burdens of life that weigh us
down; it is how we handle them.
