Rise Up With Wings As Eagles

My mom shared the link with me about the eagles and the Raptor Resource Project and I have enjoyed watching the hatching of the eggs and the majesty of the eagles.  You can watch the live video, too - 

 I am reminded of this verse:

 31But 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 shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31, King James Version)

In preparation for the Easter weekend ahead, I am reminded of the new life that Jesus Christ bought for us by His death and resurrection on Calvary!

How's The Serenity?

So last night was such a beautiful evening, the puppies and I went outside and just sat and enjoyed the beautiful, peaceful evening!
Hello Mr Moon!

I had a bit of a fiddle with the camera to try and adjust the exposure so that I could catch a few of the stars - not sure if you can see in this resolution because I made the picture a bit smaller for the blog.
Ah, I am reminded of a famous Australian movie "The Castle" where the question is asked over and over "How's the serenity?"  It has become a bit of a family line with us now when we are out enjoying the lovely peace and quiet.........or when we are somewhere wishing for a bit of

Do you ever find yourself enjoying a peaceful situation, but then wham, something or someone comes along and wrecks it for you?  Yeah? Well, Jessie and Jake sure did last night.  The neighbourhood cat "Garfield" has no mercy when it comes to my puppies - whether he is on the other side of the fence and last night, he came right out in the open in the neighbour's front yard. Poor Jake, I thought he was going to lose it! Good thing I had a solid grip on the lead.

I think this can be a bit like life sometimes.  Just when we think everything is going along nicely, something comes along and tries to throw us a curve to get our attention away from where it should be.  I am thankful that God always has a solid grip on me and my life, so that He helps me stay on track.  Where would I be without You?

Love the chorus lyrics from the song we have sung at church the past couple of Sunday's by Jesus Culture:
Your love never fails,
It never gives up
It never runs out on me!

In closing, a gorgeous postcard picture of my puppies, who bring me a lot of joy - Jessie and Jake.
