I recently went through a "dry season" in life in which I was forced to deal with a lot at once. This primarily consisted of packing and moving to a new home as well as reviewing for & taking the ACT. I am glad that those two things are over. I can now relax for a while, knowing that there are people at home and abroad who fought for me and everyone else to have freedom: Personal, spiritual, and otherwise.
Moving and cleaning up my old home was more difficult than anticipated partially because I was fighting a weird allergy-like bug that over the counter medicine barely helped with. I also dearly missed hanging out with friends and doing most of the things I would normally be doing. At times I felt isolated, physically crummy, frustrated, and sad. During this time, I (re)read the following two cards below that I received. These along with faith, prayer, support, and the truth have helped give me the strength and motivation to get through it all. Thank you to everyone who is a part of that.
Happy Holidays! Can you believe we've been friends for 20 years? I'm so glad we have manged to keep up our friendship for so long - It means so much to me. ...Have a terrific Christmas and a very happy new year!
The Bible has many references to eagles. You are called to soar as an eagle. Sometimes, because it is rare, and majestic, the flight may be alone. If you follow His word, He will give you the strength, courage, dominion, and an eagle's eye view of His creation.
