The Way of An Eagle in the Sky

The Way of An Eagle in the Sky

It seems eagles have become like pop stars lately. Nearly every area of the country has its own eagle cam, and very few people can resist taking a peek once in a while at least. We are fascinated  by their strength and beauty; we love to watch their family life, their fierce protectiveness and tender care of their offspring. We love to watch the babies hatch and grow, their funny antics, and their first flights. But we aren't the first admirers. Way back in biblical days, one of the writers of Proverbs observed:

There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Four which I do not understand:
19 The way of an eagle in the sky,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the middle of the sea,
And the way of a man with a maid.

Prov. 30:18-19

The world is filled with wonderful, awesome things that none of us can really understand.  We may observe, study, form hypotheses, and draw conclusions,  but we will never fully know.  Eventually, even the greatest minds come to the end of themselves and admit that there is Someone in the universe who planned and created it all.  That is the "WOW" factor.  That is also the God factor. 

Albert Einstein said:

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Think I will go for the "WOW" factor.
