If you’re ready for a tear jerker, I’m ready to share now:
A few weeks ago I was talking a walk along the beach and I spotted 2 bald eagles on a rock at the shore line. The tide was out and I wanted to see how close I could get to them without them attacking me and scratching my eyeballs out. I got within 25 feet of them and I believe I could have gotten closer but I wanted to respect them as I knew they were watching me.
As I stood there in awe of their majesty and thanking them for just letting me soak it all in for a moment, I got my favorite scripture out of Isaiah 40:31 running through my head: “This who HOPE in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like Eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint”. See just a few days prior we had placed our names on a list for an apartment here in Bellingham. They cap the list out at 20, so just to get on the list was a miracle. 3 hours later we got a call saying the previous applicants didn’t qualify, they made it all the way through the list of people ahead us and nobody followed up. They wanted to know if we were still interested and if we were, to come in the following day to start the application process.
The apartment manager told us that does not happen.
That happened on a Tuesday, these pictures were taken on the following Friday. My nerves were shot. Being the sole provider I didn’t know how I’d be able to afford this change but I knew, from the bottom of my soul, our family cannot do full time RV life until daddy’s knee is fixed. It continues to go downhill and now his right knee is beginning to fail as well.
Sitting there in the presence of my favorite creation, hearing God’s truth run through my mind, I wept big crocodile tears as if he were saying “chin up baby girl, I’ve got you”. ....Continued in part 2....
