soar






yesterday, 
as i went for my morning walk
down our lane
on the farm...

there he was
again

at the very top of the tree
(the left tree in the photo)

a bald eagle

he sits there
watching over the fields
so majestic

as i get closer
he tilts his head,
watching me
ever so carefully
and then...
as i get close
off he goes-

all at once
he spreads those amazing
wings
and soars

through the sky
and into the clouds
he soars


on days like this
when the sun is out
and the 
canadian mountains are in the distance, 
with beauty
all around me

i just stop
and take
a deep breath
just to soak it
all in,
to be thankful

oh yes,
life is just beautiful


isaiah 40:13
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.

That is always so fun to see. Glad he stood still long enough for you to take a pic. Hope he sticks around for you.

How wonderful to have an eagle so close! Maybe it's a favorite tree and he'll return often!

My kids ran track and played baseball at that neighboring school for 6 years, and i LOVED to watch all of the eagles every spring. For weeks we would see them every time we drove out to the school for track meets or baseball games. Fun memories!
