Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. - Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
One beautiful autumn day, I took the day off to go for a hike in the mountains along the ridge near the Delaware Water Gap where the raptor migration was at its height. With binoculars at the ready, I began to scan the sky above the ridgeline to the northeast....
Today, I will watch for the special moments that God is giving me to soar.
Spiritual renewal and encouragement

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
