Soar on wings like eagles

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 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 40:28-31

The view of Pak Sin Leng (“Leng” means mountain, and “Pak Sin” means 8 fairies in Chinese) from Pak Shek Kok Promenade is wonderful! I went there quite often recently and it is a joy to stroll or cycle there, whether it is a sunny day or a cloudy day, morning or evening. The air is fresh, the atmosphere is relaxing and the view of the mountain and the sea is simply amazing.
