As you get to know me better from hearing me speak, reading things about me on this site or elsewhere, you will hear me speaking constantly of "soaring with the eagles". I have now been given permission to use this beautiful poem written by a new friend of mine. Please enjoy it as much as I did.
Soar As The Eagle
(C) 2005 by Dr. C. B. Skelton of Winder, GA
The eagle has a special sense
that tells him when a storm is brewing.
He neither panics nor gets tense,
but goes about his daily doings
until the storm is manifest,
then flies to meet the gale head-on
while rising to a heady height
where he can face its force alone.
Without a sign of fear or fright,
he sets his outstretched wings to soar.
The storm’s up-currents elevate
the eagle high above its fray
where, peacefully, he glides and waits
until a calm returns to stay,
then simply glides back to his nest.
Oh, that mankind could comprehend
the ways to rise above the fray
and not connive or condescend
to settle scores the “old-time way”
with slashing sword and rifle’s roar.
The scripture’s promise of the peace
which passes all [our] understanding
if everything is just released
to Him in prayer, with much thanksgiving,
stands as secure for us today
as when Paul wrote to Philippi.
His promise -- not that problems pass --
but far above life’s storms we’ll fly
free from the muck, mire and morass
that threatens us along the way.
So, soar, my friend, as eagles soar
securely nestled in His love
above the storm’s tempestuous roar
until the green-branch-bearing dove
says, “Land, my child. It is safe to stay.”
