Title: Kerri’s Eagle
Date: May 31, 2013
A troupe of traveling performers had a day off on their ten-week tour, performing sixty-four shows. Their free day was spent on an Oregon beach in a dense fog, as the ocean’s rollers pounded in.
Barehanded in the sand, the troupe dug a trench and erected a wall of driftwood logs as a barrier to the wind. To the leeward side, they lit a roaring fire, sat and sang, and lounged. Come early evening, Kerri, the dancer, went for a lonesome walk under the foggy moon, away from friends and fire, to mourn her absent beau who had left the tour for home. Atop a sandy bluff above the sea, she prayed for a sign that someone loved her still.
Imploring with her heart, she raised her eyes to the sky. Abruptly, just above and almost within reach, if only she had stretched to tiptoe instead of dropping to her knees in awe, one American bald eagle slowly soared. It was eight feet wide from wingtip to wingtip, and eight feet off the ground. It craned its head to see her as he glided out of sight. Its size alone overwhelmed her, but its presence answered her prayer, because she said, in that moment, her heart was lifted on eagle’s wings with the understanding that God loved her most.
We’re never alone in life, even if it seems so. Turn your heart to the One whose love is promised.
Let’s Pray: Dear God of signs and miracles, use any means You wish to touch our hearts today to show us that we’re loved. Amen.
Here’s a Thought: God’s love heals hearts.
