But 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.
Deuteronomy 32:11,12 (KJV)
As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
When American computer executive Peter Barrett’s multi-million dollar business deal backfires, his life is turned upside down as he unwittingly becomes the most hunted man in the United States.
Personal thought from the author
I heard a wonderful story about the eagle that I would like to share with you. When it is first born, the mother places the baby in a nest that she has meticulously made for her young, choosing branches and leaves and placing the nest high on the side of a sheer cliff. Why in such a precarious position? Because she has made it safe from predators. The mother then takes wonderful care of her eaglets, bringing them delicious worms to eat and keeping them warm from the cold nights. She watches over them until they have grown feathers of their own. But there is one thing unusual about eagles, they do not inherently know how to fly, their mother must teach them.
When the time comes for the baby to take its first flight, the mother forces the baby out of the nest with her strong wing and edges it toward the precipice. She then thrusts her wing with all her strength, flinging her baby far away from the dangerous cliff and into midair where it immediately starts to drop, falling faster and faster, writhing against the wind, frightened for its life and heading toward certain death. With all its might the baby tries to flap its wings, trying to fly but it just can’t, it simply does not know how yet. Then, just before it is about to be splattered on the ground, the mother, who had been watching her young very closely, swoops beneath her baby and gently lifts her body until her baby is resting on her strong wings. With the baby secure again for the moment, she returns to the nest until it is time to try again. Over and over this happens until the baby is no longer afraid. Then finally, on one joyous day, the eagle spreads its wings and starts to soar.
This is an important story for me because it is the way I feel about my relationship with God. Many times I have felt as if He has flung me off of the cliff into midair, alone, frightened and unsure of the outcome. But every single time, without fail I somehow made it through..., a little more thankful each time for the security of those strong wings.
I read the books that I wrote and can only wonder how I could write them. I have heard of the term gifted but never understood the meaning. Now I do. Why? Because I do not see myself as smart enough or creative enough to write such an intricate story and have it turn out so well. So therefore I must give the credit to the one who created us and hope you enjoy my stories.
