Bible Verse/Message:…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)

An eaglet brought up among the chicks looks at the sky and looks forward to fly. The inspiration was from the relationship between God and man! The sculpture was made as a bird with a streamlined body and two big and heavy natural green stones as wings. It looks like a combination of man and bird (as big as an ostrich) galloping around!
Is it looking for its utopia?
Where’s your dream, bird?
Make a living, man!
Heavy wings are like heavy loads of life! Endless sighs lead to endless darkness! Who will rescue us from this body of death?
Promise: They will soar on wings like eagles!
But you are the chosen people, the royal priesthood, a holy nation, people belonging to God.
Do we really understand our true nature? Or live in vain?
