Farewell 2019, Welcome 2020

We are at the doorstep of a new year. Not only that, it will be a new decade.
What does the year ahead hold for us? 
I don't know and I am very thankful for that.
The one thing I do know is that, even in a brand new year, God is in full control.

I am sharing some fairly recent Bald Eagle shots that I got the same day I was out looking for Snowy Owls. These eagles, yes there were two, were a nice bonus.



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.

As we 'fly' into the new year, let us remember the promise of this verse. 

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.
Isaiah 40:31

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

the one I say the most, Fear not, for I am with you, Be not dismayed, for I am your God, I will comfort you and strengthen you and lift you up by my righteous right Arm. Once in a car accident, they said they could not transport me until my BP came down, I said this worse 3 times and the BP went to normal. the EMT said what did you do. she was shocked when I told her

These are incredible images Ruth! Great job capturing these magnificent birds! Such a fitting scripture as well, one of my personal favorites! I agree with you, we never know what tomorrow holds, but we do know the ONE who does. We can rest content in that. Blessings to you sweet friend!

Super captures! I wish I could find eagles in my area. I love your scripture posts Ruth...they always speak to me, as does my bible. Isn't it amazing that He KNOWS what we need to hear before we even know ourselves?
Have a great weekend!
