On Eagle's Wings

Is it just me, or has this fall been one of the best in a long time?  Beautiful days, pleasant evenings, some rain, lots of sun and gentle breezes, great colors in the trees and no early snow.  It really has been nice.  

We sang the song, On Eagle's Wings, at church Sunday and remembered loved ones who have died in the past year.  We sang this song at my dad's funeral.  It's an emotional one for me, and I was not dry eyed at the service.  Just another reminder that dad is gone.  As always, I miss you pops, hope you can see Patrick and know that I tell him about Uncle Brian and Grandpa Roger often and tell him the tales I remember from working at the bakery.  Making the donuts in the night with you.  I keep your memory alive.  I think you'd like Patrick, and Lucas and Emily too.  Your girls love you and miss you.   

"And He will raise you up, on eagle's wings, bear you on the breath of dawn.  Make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand."
