Finally, some good news

This world can be a cruel place, cracked into sharp, broken pieces – and sadly, the worst tends to happen to the most vulnerable, whether animals, children, the poor, or the disenfranchised. It’s easy to feel small and helpless about it all.

But I’m learning that we don’t have to solve the entire puzzle. Our job is just to look at the broken pieces in front of us, and when we can, put them back together. Just that. Just today. It’s hard to see the bigger picture — but if we’re all doing our part? It starts to be that whole “on earth as it is in heaven” thing.

Kudos to these adorable Canadian brothers for stopping their car, spending four minutes prying open a trap, and (after the greatest selfie of all time) setting this dadgum eagle FREE. This story is making the rounds on the internet as something awesome — but to me, it’s more than that. It’s redemption and deliverance and — forgive me if this is too much, but I’ll stand by it — salvation.
