The Rushing Winds

High above in the tress, the winds passed through. It sounded like streams of water flowing down a creek. It was an amazing sound and in the middle of it all was an eagle flying about. His wings spread wide open, flying throughout the air without a care, enjoying the gentle flowing breeze that surrounded him. His surroundings were so amazing. Miles and miles of pine trees, the fresh scent in the air, so refreshing.

Soon his whole world was about to be turned up side down, nearby a hunter looking for something easy to kill spotted the Eagle. He peered through the scope with deadly accuracy, he stood very still waiting for the kill. The shots fired and before his eyes this gentle little precious creature given to us by God started to fall.

This man didn't know God, he didn't understand what faith was all about. He just cared about himself and didn't care if he hurt anyone. The Eagle was barely alive, trying to make sense of it all, clutching to life as it tried to breath for air looking at the man with fear in its eyes. The terror was like a baby being left without its parents.

As the man looked on, he started to feel sorrow even though a few minutes ago he was just fine killing this poor creature. Something had come over him at the last minute, he was feeling regret and wished he could take it all back.

He started to see the poor Eagle drifting off, he didn't know what to do. He just wanted to make it right and wished that what he had just done could be reversed.

He dropped to his knees, the tears flowing down his face, his hands pressed against the ground only a few feet away from the Eagle. He looked towards the eagle with his teary eyes and pleaded as he looked up begging for this poor creature to have a second chance.

Suddenly, he woke up. It was all a bad dream, but comforting to his sight when he woke up, was an Eagle flying up above in the trees in the rushing winds. It was a great sight to see and a reminder to him to appreciate all of God's creatures. From now on even though it was a dream, he will look at each and everyone of them in a different way.
