God's Masterpiece

The detailed beauty of this Northern Shoveler as it paused quietly for me to drink in its beauty during a recent visit to my favorite Park, was special. 
Our beauty too is detailed and in the Holy Scriptures, we are referred to as God’s Masterpiece. I think that’s a significant way to describe you and I. What do you think?   
For we are God's masterpiece. Ephesians 2:10

Eagle Strength

“Few animals hold as much symbolism or generate as much excitement, and emotion as eagles. Strength, courage, honor,
majesty, and freedom are all characteristics that have been represented by eagles around the world for thousands of years.1
As I observed this Bald Eagle at my favorite Park during the recent Virginia snowfall, it reminded me of Scripture verse that personifies us with these same eagle traits: But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.2 I receive every word. Do you?
2. Isaiah 40:31
