Eagles at the Levee

We enjoy driving along the Mississippi levee at this time of year to watch these beautiful birds nesting and perching high up in the tree tops or soaring in the sky. From this vantage point, they can keep their eyes on the river in search of fish and other prey.

If we never had the courage to take a leap of faith, we’d be cheating God out of a chance to mount us up with wings like eagles and watch us soar.” ~Jen Stephens

Frosty Knees & Decorated Trees

Last time we were at Reelfoot Lake, ice formations made by windblown spray decorated the cypress knees and bases of the trees.  For the most part, our winter has been mild, with temperatures going from freezing at night to above freezing in the daytime, so though the ice wasn’t as thick as it has been in the past, it was still an impressive and beautiful sight.

The winter tree is a snowflake dressed in grace and bones, a simple miracle to behold on winter’s lonely road.”  ~Angie Weiland-Crosby
