The Eagle

An amazing tidbit about the Eagle's eyesight: The eagle can probably identify a rabbit moving almost a mile away. That means that an eagle flying at an altitude of 1000 feet over open country could spot prey over an area of almost 3 square miles from a fixed position.

No wonder we want to spread our wings and soar with the eagles.


Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.

When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the cloud.......


Isaiah 40:31
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 over 10 bald eagles roosting on my cliffs overlooking my house...love them..especially when they snag my pheasants or kitties...

OK Momma. I live smack between a nest and a lake, so I see them flying over my house. I want to lure them down to my pond - do I have to toss the cats outside?

I certainly am glad that I wasn't born an eagle. that just seems like a lot of freaking work.

After 60 years in Indiana (the hilly part) I never saw an eagle in real life. If I would have, I believe I would have cried from the beauty.
