Priceless Wings Of Grace

 

Translating movement into a static medium requires making the wind visible and allowing it to trace the path and acrobatics of this eagle.

 

 

 

 

Grace requires a need

    to be given or received.

If we deem our strength sufficient,

    for Godís help weíll never plead.

 

Perhaps our needs and weakness

    are wings with which to fly,

When we humbly ask God for His strength,

    instead of grumbling why.

 

Dependence on Almighty God

    just might repulse the proud;

"I donít want your weak-kneed crutches,

    Iím sufficiently endowed."

 

So we limp upon this temporal plane

    and self-righteously ignore,

Both the sin that keeps us earthbound,

    and the wings with which to soar.

 

Then never taste the thrill

    of flying swift and free,

On the priceless wings of grace

    that unfurl on bended knee.
