Renewal

Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psalm 103:1-5

There's a deeper meaning here that's easy to miss
unless you are an expert on eagles. Eagles go through
a time in mid life, where they go to a safe place and lose
feathers and their talons and their beak. They become
completely helpless. But, other eagles come and feed the
one going through this renewal until he or she grows new
feathers and talons and beak.
