Like An Eagle...
Live Video streaming by Ustream
I found out about this live cam of an eagle's nest in Iowa. It is has been so cool to watch. The pair now have 3 little ones. If you watch for very long you get to see how attentive the parents are to their little ones. It actually has surprised me how much they are aware of what their little ones are doing. They have built the nest up around them more and more as they have grown. (Good thing because that nest is 80 feet off the ground!)
I thought I remembered a verse in scripture that talked about God caring for His people the way an eagle cares for their young and I found it.
“For the people of Israel belong to the Lord;
Jacob is his special possession.
He found them in a desert land,
in an empty, howling wasteland.
He surrounded them and watched over them;
he guarded them as he would guard his own eyes.
Like an eagle that rouses her chicks
and hovers over her young,
so he spread his wings to take them up
and carried them safely on his pinions.
The Lord alone guided them;
they followed no foreign gods.
He let them ride over the highlands
and feast on the crops of the fields.
He nourished them with honey from the rock
and olive oil from the stony ground.
He fed them yogurt from the herd
and milk from the flock,
together with the fat of lambs.
He gave them choice rams from Bashan, and goats,
together with the choicest wheat.
You drank the finest wine,
made from the juice of grapes.
Reminds me to look around and be thankful for all the ways the Lord is hemming me in, protecting me, nourishing me, and providing for me!
