On Eagles Wings

Isaiah 40:31 is one of my favorites...
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.
Have you heard about Challenger the eagle? I was reading a fascinating story about an eagle that was about 5 to 6 weeks old in Louisiana, when the during a storm the eagle was blown from his nest. He was rescued and raised by people. He was declared non-releasable' by the authorities, so he was trained by the AEF to perform at such events as the World Series, BCS Championships, etc. by flying into the arena as the first bald eagle to learn to free-fly into a stadium!
Watch him on you-tube! He is gorgeous and he teaches us that just like the scriptures tell us our hope is in the LORD!
Remember during this holiday season when things get so crazy and you feel so overwhelmed that God will renew your strength and that you can soar just like an eagle!
Holidays are difficult and we need to share with those around us about the hope that we have because of a little baby that was born into this world to give us so much more than just hope! A baby was born to give us healing, to save us and to give us all new life! Share the love of Our Savior and whose birthday we celebrate this month!
