Things change moment by moment
and we don't always know what
God's up to-
It's sure exciting though when something happens
right out of your ordinary-
I'm pondering this morning a recent eagle encounter.
We don't get to see bald eagles very often at our house-
but recently one flew over me very low while I was
standing outside of our shop.
It came flying towards me ... and
we looked right at eachother.
It was anything but
More like... OMG!!!
Never in my life had I made eye contact
with a bald eagle.
A few days later
I was walking on our place and I can't even remember now
where I saw it but this feather was in my path.
I took a picture of it
counting it as one of my gifts of the day.
Realizing I had never seen one like it ...
I asked friends on facebook if anyone knew what kind of bird it
One friend added a photo of bald eagle feathers
and they were identical.
Another friend is a mountain man and he too
I wonder ...
could it be from
The one who flew over
just days earlier and who
I painted into my art journal with
the EYE looking at me?
Gives me goosebumps.
-Goosebumps because that day I felt God telling me
to trust Him.
I felt so much love that day.
Looking back through my journals
I see so many dots connecting.
The more love
and love more
Walking across the pastures not long ago I saw a rock
that appeared to have a heart inside.
Carrying it home
I took a hammer and
started chipping the rough edges away.....
Love does that too... doesn't it?
It even covers a multitude of sins.
My anchor verse for 2014
tells me that God gives new hearts too.
It really is
all about the love.
