Eagles In A Storm

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approching long before it breaks? The Eagle is the only bird that loves a storm, when clouds gather he gets real excited.

The Eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the Eagle is soaring above it. Once he finds the wind of the storm, it stops flapping and uses the pressure of the ragging storm to soar.

The Eagle can do this because he is the only bird God created with the ability to lock its wings in fixed position which enables them to be at rest as it soars high above the storm clouds. They do not escape the storm, they simply rise above it..

Hello Margaret:)

This is wonderful and interesting information.

Toward the end,you said something which made me sit up and read twice-They do not escape the storm, they simply rise above it.

These are very motivating words,Margaret. When we are in trouble it is better not to try to escape the situation but it would be better to find ways to rise above the trouble and overcome it.This is the meaning that rings in my head loud and clear.

Best wishes:)

That is exactly what God meant when he wrote: "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 shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Like an eagle we will rise above our storms when we rely on God for his help in our times of trouble.

Thank you Margaret for teaching me something today. I did not know that and can't wait to tell Bobby G. about it. We have an eagle that lives here on the lake. I rarely see him but my husband does since he is on the lake all the time. It is amazing though when he flies over. Now every time we have a storm I will think about the eagle. Hope your blues have lifted a bit. xoxo

I love this Margaret. I always seem to learn something new when I visit your page.

Fittingly, both my high school mascot and also that of my daughter's school, is the Eagle. Appropriate timing. :o)

I think we all have that ability but have lost the "how to do it" part and can seldom ride out any storm.
