Eric’s 2-Cents: I’m not sure how “true” this is, but none the less it is an inspiring story.
This is Amazing… It is no wonder there are scriptural references to the eagle! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
And, no there is no wonder the bald eagle has such a significant symbolism to our country. What hope!
When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the clouds…
An amazing tidbit 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.
No wonder the creator wants us to spread our wings and soar with eagles.
