“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isaiah 41:31)

Good Morning!

One of our prayers say, “in unforeseen events all things are sent by you”. I recently had an experience that to me was God teaching me about my life.

extremehumilityI was on my way to do some errands around 8:30 in the morning. We live on a little annex street that turns into a busy street. I was waiting to turn into the wave of morning traffic when I noticed this hawk flying low and chasing a mouse. To my horror the hawk was hit by 3 cars. The hawk flopped around and I was not sure if it was dead or had broken wings.

I ran out into the river of traffic, and (with fear) I picked up the what I thought a half dead bird. I will admit I was fearful of being bitten. But I grabbed the hawk and felt his wings. Amazingly I found no broken wings. I reluctantly grabbed the bird and put it in the back of the covered cab of my truck.

I went ahead and finished my errands which took a couple of hours. When I came home I opened the back door of the cab, and the hawk was sitting in the same spot. I gently felt his wings. After a few minutes the bird looked me straight in my eyes and I felt the wings again. To my amazement the hawk walked to the back door and flew away fully intact.

During the year we go through many trials and tribulations. The church is a place for healing those things which damage our inner soul and outer life, even those things that battle us personally.

May God heal you during this season of repentance, renewal, and restoration.

May the beauty of heaven consume you…Fr. David
