Be sure to read the Associated Press article about the bald eagle that landed on a fire truck, part of a Patriot Day tribute in Minnesota and view the photo on Andover Fire Department’s Facebook page.
I don’t need to remind you that the bald eagle is our national bird and a symbol of Freedom. In the instance of this wild and free eagle, its timing and the particular location of its landing surrounded by American flags could not have been better than if it were scripted as part of the 17th anniversary tribute. If you consider its flight path and landing may have been choreographed by its Creator and not merely coincidence, then you may appreciate the event even more and be filled with hope and awe.
Once more “the Eagle has landed” (Neil Armstrong), and many Americans were reminded that Almighty God is sovereign. I was also reminded in whom to hope.
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
