Cruising above the clouds.

That is why I loved being a flight attendant. As I looked out an aircraft window, the endless blue sky and white expanse calmed me. During those inspiring seconds, God seemed to flip my thinking from downside to upside.
He nudged me to look at life through a different lens - to seek a heavenly perspective - to live above my circumstances.
He reminded me when, not if, my life on earth becomes unbearable that I must cling to His Word and His purpose.

And so I set my mind on the things above. But this story is not about me. It is about the Creator of the heavens and the earth - about how one day the Son of Man will come in a cloud.

With power and great glory, He will come. (Luke 21:27)
