Fw: Eagle flight

I caught this eagle in flight this morning over the Diascund Reservoir.  It was about 20 degrees outside but the eagles and other birds didn't seem to be affected by the cold.  They seemed to be having fun climbing and diving and circling over the water.  The view of eagles soaring seems appropriate as an image on this first day of a new year.  The cold air awakens us (and freezes us unless we dress for it!) as the new year refreshes our hopes and expectations.  It's almost as if the slate has been cleared...the white board erased...the new canvas posted on the easel and we can soar also beneath the sunlight of our Creator and above the fears and failures that may have anchored us in the past.
Hope is an eagle that has taken wing in our hearts.

Isaiah 40:31a 
   but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;

"Death is inevitable.  Life is a choice!"

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live."
