With its white head facing upward, the eagle soared back and forth through the tall trees. I couldn’t make out what he was doing besides gliding. Earlier this year we spotted an eagle’s nest.

Perhaps it was looking for food. Eagles can lift up to 4 pounds approximately. The pest control company we use has put bait out for mice. The previous owners had bait so we assume they may have had problems at one time. I’d appreciate the eagles eating all the mice they can get.

The eagle is patient. Approximately 1 in 18 attacks for food is successful which explains why the eagle is seen “resting” a lot.

Victory comes to the eagle but he has to wait for it. So it is in life. Sometimes we have to do things over and over and over again until we finally get “it.” It might be our struggles with drugs, food, sex, anger, gossip, pornography, etc.

But like the eagle, we need to be patient and continue trying.

Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone. Proverbs 25:15
