My good friend Joan e-mailed me these photos and story about the Eagles. It's an urban legend, not factual -- what's depicted does not happen to all eagles, but it speaks to me about growing old, and what one needs to do, to grow stronger, bolder, wiser along the way.

An amazing fact 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.

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength ;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they will shall walk, and not faint.

Perhaps God is telling us to spread our wings and soar with eagles -- certainly that's what this legend is saying to me.
