Upon the ordination of our son-in-law into the ministry we sought out "the perfect gift" to commemorate the once-in-a-lifetime occasion with a present that would serve him through the years as a reminder and a challenge of his high calling. The eagle is his favorite animal (bird) and the scripture contained on the plaque, his "life" verse. The quality of the product, the figurine, and the Bible passage, when combined with the engraved plate which we had produced and mounted on the base of the plaque, made this everything we were looking for, everything we wanted to convey.
I absolutely love the eagle and also the quoted scripture from Isaiah. I wish, however, that the quote had kept the exact wording of the scripture and hadn't changed the wording "wait upon the Lord" to "hope in the Lord". To me the word wait is to serve the Lord while here on earth, not just to hope for His help, love, and second coming.
