Yesterday – I saw an eagle.

Good Morning!

     This Year we have in Oz been experiencing lots of difficult weather but also news of personal heartaches continues to rise.        Walking yesterday, I saw an eagle…………..but….

soaring Bird Australia

Australian eagles are different to eagle species in other parts of the globe but the same principles of soaring, catching, wind currents and gliding high in the sky are identical.   I love watching eagles soar.   Their sense of freedom and abundant life have always inspired me.

Yesterday, my encounter came a bit too close for comfort.    I saw the eagle soaring  and then was surprised when it began to swoop lower across the paddocks.   I began to wonder if it was seeking for food and had babies in a nest, high on the nearby mountain.

It swooped lower and little Char-lee walking ahead of me  did not know it was overhead until she saw its shadow on the roadway.

She looked up and barked once as if to say.  “Go and find your dinner somewhere else.’

This wild bird circled us once more and then flew back and forth as if assessing who or what we were.   Obviously the little dog passed muster and was not regarded as a fluffy rat or something edible and able to be picked up and transported to the eagle’s family.

I watched as she continued to swoop over the barren paddocks until finally she made a swoop.   I do not know what it was but I felt confident her family would not be hungry that night.

We finished our walk but for a beautiful moment the refrain of a song I always loved flowed through my heart.

He has carried me on Eagle’s Wings.    He will carry me through all my years.    


Blessings to you this day.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
