Empty upon the top of the cliff, sits an eagle's nest. The mother eagle is very diligent in the survival of her eaglets. She provides food for them daily. As the eaglets develope, the mother eagle would gradually nudge a baby eaglet out of the nest forcing it to use its wings. Unable to fly just yet, the mother eagle would rescue the eaglet. What is the purpose of this exercise? Well the eagle is preparing each eaglet to soar to their destination. The nest is now empty and all of the eaglets have become full grown eagles, and have soared to their destiny.
Parents nurture and teach their children, by preparing them to fulfill their purpose and destiny. The time then comes for each of them to leave home, to pursue their destination leaving the home feeling empty. Yes, parents will miss their children's presence in the home, but they are happier knowing that, it is a must for their children to fulfill their purpose. They have the confidence that God will take care of each of their them.
In the Gospel of John 3:16, it describes the love of the Father for His children. It reads " For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Hallelujah, He has an offer you really should not refuse, the offer is a new life in Christ Jesus.
