Isn’t there just something majestic about the Eagle?
There is something in how they fly, the way they swoop in, their 8-foot wing span for a female eagle, their wing design, and the white that pops sometime after they turn two, complementing their yellow beak and black body. John Denver knew about the power of an Eagle in his song Rocky Mountain High:
Of a simple thing, he cannot comprehend
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
I know he’d be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky mountain high
I used to think it was an unusual thing to see an Eagle, but here in New Jersey, the Eagles fly a few miles from my brother and sister-in-law’s house. Jonna knows where to find them and shared lots of facts about them on our morning walk. She also is an amazing photographer. This is fascinating about the Eagles nest: Bald Eagle nests are absolutely huge at roughly eight feet wide and 13 feet deep. They also weigh a lot more than expected as most weigh, on average, one ton.
I am not sure I will ever stop being in awe of the Eagle.
And how can I walk through the park without this song resonating deep in my soul?
May you experience the comfort and promise of being raised up and held in the palm of His hand!
Blessed be His Name!
