The Wings of an Eagle

My son and husband recently went to a scout event and while they were all standing around the flag pole, an eagle flew overhead, wings wide and graceful.  When they arrived home that evening it was one of the first things they told me about their day.
I've thought of their story several times since then. The beauty of the eagle in the sky, the broadness of his wings, the strength and endurance. God has gifted him with flight, and He has done the same for me.

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary. And to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength. They will mount up with wings like an eagle. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not become weary."  Isaiah 40: 28-31

Say That Again, Lord God! Today I need Your strength and power. Today I need to mount up with wings like an eagle!
