There is an article in Reader’s Digest Selections entitled: The saving embrace, it is about the life of twin girls who were born when they were six months old.
Doctors thought she would not make it since she was very weak.
The chief nurse had a great idea. Breaking the rules of the hospital, she placed the twins together in the same setter, a wonderful miracle occured, the sister who was healthy took into her arms her dying sister and her warm body started to regulate her sister’s temperature, pulse and heart beating. Thanks to that cuddle, today the twins are alive and they are healthy.
We should not forget how important is to embrace the people we love and how good it is for our heart a warm embrace.
An embrace tells and does a lot: Hug your friend, hug your loved ones.
The Eagle has the longest life-span of its species.It can live up to 70 years, but to reach this age, when it is about 40, the eagle must take a hard decision.
In its 40th year its long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food.
Its long and sharp beak becomes bent. Its old-aged wings become heavy due to their thick feathers and make it difficult to fly.
Then, the eagle is left with only two options: DIE or go through a painful process of change which lasts 150 days.
The process requires that the eagle retreats to a mountain top and sit on its nest.There the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until it plucks it out.
Then, the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out its talons.
When its new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old-aged feathers.
And after five months, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and lives for thirty more years.
Remember: when you feel weak or sick of everything, it is good to retreat yourself and free from past burdens. This will allow you to soar and see life with different eyes.
“He gives power to the feeble, increasing the strength of him who has no force.
Even the young men will become feeble and tired, and the best of them will come to the end of his strength. But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles: running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness” Isaiah 40: 29-31
