Free To Fly

As another month is over and a new one upon us, my mind is on flying. Time flies, we hear that often, days and moments fly by so quickly we barely have time to do the things we want to.


 Clouds don't usually fly through the sky, but rather lazily drift along. Come to think of it, those days when we can drift along are so relaxing and refreshing. Take some time to watch the clouds drift along and allow your body and soul to be refreshed.


This,on the other hand is a fast way of getting from one place to another.Aircraft are designed to speed through the air and get the traveller to their destination quickly.


The seeds from this Milkweed have left the pod several months ago.Were they in a hurry to leave or did they take their time.I wasn't there to see it, but I'm guessing that they hung onto the pod as long as possible and finally,at just the right moment sailed through the air, carried by the wind to a new place, where hopefully there was soil for them to start a new life.


Bald Eagles are most graceful,soaring through the sky on those huge wings. Sometimes things happen and for a time they need to be grounded and nursed back to health. That is where this Eagle had been, but now it was once again ready to soar as it was meant to do.


He quickly discovered that those wings still worked quite well and off he went. This release happened at a Raptor Festival not too far from where I live.What a thrill to see this bird take flight once again.


To Think About:
When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty,trust Him fully,because two things can happen,either He’ll catch you when you fall,or He will teach you to fly.

  12. The cloud photo is beautiful, and I love the way the way the plane and its contrail look against that dark blue sky. So happy for the eagle to be returned to the wild after his convalescence. I don't know if you watch the nest cam for the Decorah eagles, but the dad eagle has been missing now for almost two weeks. Hope is all but gone that he'll ever be found. I'd like to think that he's somewhere safe, perhaps recuperating. Your header is gorgeous, by the way.
