High Places


The quest for height is inborn.
Our eyes reach for the sky.
We love to climb up and look down
as all the world goes by.


But do we seek high places when
it comes to sacred things?
If we would fly like eagles,
 we must find our spirit wings.

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings 
as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

I love the scripture you posted with this. Anything that promises energy like that is taken to heart with me. Especially on days like today where I am so bogged down with allergy medicine!

My wings have felt clipped for a while now, but I'm beginning to feel the new feathers start growing again. I know what you mean.

So beautiful and true! Love it, Sue.

Even me, who's afraid of heights, enjoys a room with a view. The Celestial room usually is the one that helps give me my spirit wings...beautiful, sweet poem Sue.

Wonderful pictures with good compositions between the lines. A beautiful bird's flight.

The quest for height is inborn...Never thought of it that way. I guess we are always looking upward and onward!

I always LOVE it when you find a way to include those cute grandchildren in your blog.

I need to remember to 1.) Find those wings more often, and 2.) Use them. Exercise them regularly.
Thanks for the beautiful reminder!

they say it's hard to soar with the eagles when you are a turkey! Explains my dislike of airplnes, I guess.

Karen Mortensen said...

Thanks. Need to hear that once in a while.

Stef said...

Okay, I love this!!

Dixie Mom said...

Isn't it funny how we are willing to stretch ourselves physically but not spiritually? A good reminder for me today. I hope to spread my wings a bit further today.

Love this. And there's no shame in seeking for higher ground, so long as it's not by trampling on those below.
