Pigeons and chickens tend to flock together but eagles soar alone. I'm thankful that our pastor at Jubilee Christian Center in Somerville, TX flies alone with God, listening as God leads. Being gifted with communication skills, Pastor Gary Faulkner regularly shares with the congregation and others what the Lord reveals to him. Then challenges us to move forward.
This past Sunday we had a pastor's appreciation dinner, part of which was a mailbox full of personal notes --- I painted this post card for him from a photo taken at the Texas Aquarium. The eagle had once flown wild in Alaska but had been injured. The rehabilitaters determined that, though healed from his injuries, he would not survive in the wild anymore so he lives at the aquarium.
