Eagle’s Wings

I was backpacking. It was a long uphill trail. My legs were getting very rubbery. Then I looked up and saw an eagle soaring effortlessly uphill.

We piled out of the car, excited to start our Backpacking trip. We slung on our backpacks, waved goodbye to our tolerant parents, yelling, “see you in a week.” Soon, we were hiking, and realized that, having been birthed from the car, nothing functioned yet.

Restoration after Suffering

Corrie had a wonderful ministry, traveling around the world, telling of the amazing things God had done.
