Psalm 91:4

He will cover you with his feathers,
   and under his wings you will find refuge;
   his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 

This is the second year that a webcam has been set up at an eagles' nest in Decorah, Iowa.  

I have to admit that I often check in to see what the eagles are doing.  One night as the female was sitting on the nest incubating her three eggs, something startled her.
She went into a protective pose, spreading her wings to protect her young.

When I saw this photo I couldn't help but think about Psalm 91 and being covered by His feathers.  It was a great visual for me. 

Right now G and I are being covered by His feathers as we seek refuge under his wings...  As we seek refuge in a place where we stay close to him and each other, waiting for a definitive diagnosis...  As we stay in a place of hope and courage about the future... As we stay seeking comfort from our family and from our community of faith.  We stay knowing that we are not alone, that we are safe, that we are in God's hands.

Stay isn't easy, but the knowledge that we have refuge under his wings gives us peace.  And with peace comes the ability to stay.
