verses 18-19: “There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Four which I do not understand: The way of an eagle in the sky, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the middle of the sea, And the way of a man with a maid.”

I was driving our family home one Saturday from our parents’ house. My wife turned on BBN radio (Bible Broadcasting Network). We caught the tail end of an interview with a military colonel who was commenting on the F-15 fighter jet, nicknamed the Eagle. It had been one of the most successful fighter jets in our country’s history, having never been shot down in a dogfight. The colonel was commenting on its structure and abilities in the air, much like a real eagle for whom it was nicknamed. The colonel commented that he marveled at the design the engineers had come up with for the F-15, but he marveled more at the design of the true eagle, whom God had created.

Our God, our Creator, has made some amazing things. If you have ever seen in an eagle in flight, you would agree. Even the way a snake moves on the ground (who, as a kid, hasn’t tried to imitate a snake, only to find you can’t!) or the way a ship can turn through the waters, can be mystifying. Personally, having experienced the wonderful love of my wife, I never cease to be amazed by God’s wonderful gift of marriage and love. The relationship of my wife and me is rooted in and blessed by Him. It can be very easy today, with man’s technological achievements, to become jaded and desensitized to the wonder and beauty God has blessed us with. As spring begins to unfold in these coming weeks, try to take a moment, open your eyes, and see what God has blessed you with. I hope you’ll agree that, they “are too wonderful for me”.

Have a blessed day in Him!
