Wanting Wings

"I want wings for my birthday," my four year old tells me as he zooms into the room.
"Big wings.  Then I can fly!"

"Oh yeah," I laugh aloud.

"When I get my wings," he excitedly explains, "then I can soar very high.  Up in the sky!"

I smile as he zips back out of the room, and know that I hope he gets his wings someday, too. 
Wings to fly and soar when he grows into a man, living out his life.

Even youths grow tired and weary,
   and young men stumble and fall;
 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 40:30-31
