We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

Big Birds

The soccer fields where the "parks and recreation" soccer games are held, are on the edge of town, by a small river. It was a cold morning on our way to the soccer game on Saturday at 9am when we passed the pond by the river and I saw something and yelled "Stop! Kids look at the birds!". Not only was the pond filled with large Pelicans but there was a Great Blue Heron on the shore and then came flying in a beautiful American Bald Eagle who spooked the Great Blue Heron and landed on the ground. It then flew up again circled around and landed in the tree. By the time I got the camera out I had missed the pic of it with it's wings spread in the air but did get a blurry shot of it in the tree. It must have been a good morning for fishing. So after marveling at the birds we made it to the game which turned out to be cold, but as usual Tensae did great.
