Love the eagle in flight, thanks!
You are welcome, Mar :) I toyed with the idea of animating birds after employing them a few times in my panels, wondering how difficult it would be because I had never done it before. What I found was, it was not really difficult at all, aside from getting the proper sizing to give an impression of the bird coming closer over distance covered. The problem in the final analysis, at least for me, is that the bird in flight seems too distracting from the message, and the message is the purpose of the panel :) I would still like to animate some panels, but in a less distracting manner :D

Hello, magenta,

That's fine, as it is always the Word that matter most.

Incidentally, i was at a local science fair recently, and there was a film showing on the Philippine eagle. Growing up to a meter tall, our national bird reported to be monogamous and very loyal, it has no known close relatives or recognized subspecies, with life expectancy of up to 60 years... Just some interesting trivia=).

Psalm 118. (CJB)
12 They surrounded me like bees
but were extinguished [as quickly] as a fire in thorns;
in the name of Adonai I cut them down.

Psalm 119.
176 I strayed like a lost sheep; seek out your servant;
for I do not forget your mitzvot.

Psalm 120.
3 What has he in store for you, deceitful tongue?
What more will he do to you?
4 A warrior’s sharp arrows,
with red-hot coals from a broom tree.

HAB. 2:14.
For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of The LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

Psalm 124.
7 We escaped like a bird from the hunter's trap; the trap is broken, and we have escaped.
8 Our help is in the name of ADONAI, the maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 128 (CJB)
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
in the inner parts of your house.
Your children around the table will be
like shoots from an olive tree.


Psalm 129
5 Let all who hate Tziyon
be thrown back in confusion.
6 Let them be like grass on the roof,
which dries out before it grows up
7 and never fills the reaper’s hands
or the arms of the one who binds sheaves

Psalm 140.
4.(3) They [evil people] have made their tongues as sharp as a snake’s;
viper’s venom is under their lips. (Selah)

Psalm 144.
12 Our sons in their youth will be
like full-grown saplings,
our daughters will be like sculptured pillars
fit for the corner of a palace.
13 Our barns are full with crops of every kind;
the sheep in our fields number thousands, tens of thousands.
14 our oxen are well-fed,
our city walls have no breach,
our people are not taken captive,
and there are no cries of protest in our cities’ open places.
15 How happy the people who live in such conditions!
How happy the people whose God is Adonai!

Psalm 145.
He veils the sky with clouds;
he provides the earth with rain;
he makes grass grow on the hills;
9 he gives food to the animals,
even to the young ravens when they cry.
10 He takes no delight in the strength of a horse,
no pleasure in a runner’s speed.
11 Adonai takes pleasure in those who fear him,
in those who wait for his grace.

Psalm 148.
7 Praise Adonai from the earth,
sea monsters and watery depths,
8 fire and hail, snow and mist,
storm-winds that obey his word,
9 mountains and every hill,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all livestock,
creeping reptiles, flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all peoples,
princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women alike,
old men and children.

Beautiful hymn based on Psa. 148. I love the Filipino version as well, of

Let all things their Creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness
O praise Him, Alleluia
