"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." . . .

Fly, GO!

Several years ago I kept reading and listening to folks speak about eagles. I was fascinated by the majestic creature. Of course, Isaiah 40:28-31 is one of my favorite Scripture passages.

I am almost too late for last week's Five Minute Friday, but I couldn't let this go...so here I GO!
