An Eagle's Life

It is a busy time here at the ranch trying to get cows loaded and taken to the other ranch for their wintering. We are still short 14 cows, a bull, and 7 or so calves. They will come in with these temperatures getting so much colder now. It is just moments after 8 in the morning as I sit here typing away and the sun is just now hitting the trees and making it to some of the rail fence. Unreal!
The harvest moon shone brightly all through the night this morning we have this beautiful sparkly frost. It seems the frost is getting thicker and thicker and staying longer everyday. Yesterday there was snow and slush off and on through the day. PTL it did not stay.
Some friends of ours were here a lit
tle bit back ago and went fishing down on our part of the river (not sure one can claim a river but the ranch is on both sides) While they were fishing they would pile the sucker fish as they were going to feed them to our piggies. Well a certain young eagle had very different plans for those same fish. He came and ate them all and then had to suffer the consequences of the sin of gluttony. He could not lift off to fly he was so fat and heavy from all those fish. Our friends managed to get him on camera so I thought I would post these photos for others to see. I am not posting all of them as it takes way too long for my computer to compute! Here's hoping they work and you enjoy them.
the first one shows him after he struggled to get to a branch overhanging the Blackwater
River~~the second photo shows him trying hard to keep away from those photographers but he is losing his balance~~The third one~~ooh ohh I am slipping how do I get out of this mess? fourth one~~well if you can't fly you can always swim~man this river is cold!!
fifth ~back on dry land now to dry out ~~Geesh what a day!!

But those who wait upon the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Its a lot easier to mount up on those eagle wings if
you do not practise gluttony
oh the lessons we learn!!
God Bless Your Sunday
