I was out this morning watering my new trees, and shrubs. As I was pulling the hose around the house I heard and eagle call just over my head. It was probably just about one hundred feet above.
I saw one last Saturday as I was mowing the yard. The reason I mention it is that this time of year with this kind of weather they have usually moved on, and they are not often seen around here.
I know that it is probably not likely, but this eagle seemed as though he called out to me, “I am here. Watch me soar above” and I did for a moment until I could see him no more. There are some things about the eagle that reminds me of the Creator. He needs to constantly remind me, “I Am here. Watch Me soar over your fears, heartaches and problems; and rest in the shelter of My wings”. Thank YOU Lord.
Of course that is not really anything new. They have been flying, perching, birthing, eating, breathing, and living for millenniums of time. However, I did see my first eagle this season flying over our house.
It flew in a circle over the house as though he was checking us out, and to let me know they were back. There was no doubt in my mind it was a bald eagle. The white head and tail feathers glistened in the afternoon sunlight.
I was glad to see our friends had returned to the banks of Flat Creek. A blessing from our Creator, Jesus the Christ, Son of the Living God.
And, one other little thing. Do you remember the “Little Girl” (the little corgy dog which adopted us) well, now she is “Little mama”. On Sunday evening October 23, she was beginning to have puppies when we arrived home from church. Monday morning when I left to go drive the school bus, she had seven, though one was dead, laying beside its mother.
If anyone wants a puppy in a few months let me know, and we will see what we can do about that.
