‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Me.

I will make myself like the Most High.”
He satisfies you with goodness;

It’s the smallest of all the seeds, but when grown, it’s taller than the vegetables and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the sky come and nest in its branches.”
Does the eagle soar at your command
and make its nest on high?
He watches over His nest like an eagle
and hovers over His young;
He spreads His wings, catches him,
and lifts him up on His pinions.
Does the hawk take flight by your understanding
and spread its wings to the south?

Then God said, “Let the water swarm with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.”
If they dig down to Sheol,
from there My hand will take them;
if they climb up to heaven,
from there I will bring them down.

You rule the raging sea;
when its waves surge, You still them.
As soon as your eyes fly to it, it disappears,

2 Corinthians 9:6
Remember this: The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously.
I sent you to reap what you didn’t labor for; others have labored, and you have benefited from their labor.”
Shining morning star,
