High Flight 2018

“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Sunward I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
 of sun-split clouds, –
And done a hundred things
 You have not dreamed of —
Wheeled and soared and swung
 high in the sunlit silence.
Hovering there, I’ve chased the shouting wind along,
And flung
 my eager craft through footless halls of air . . .

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew;

And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and [sought] the face of God.”

In memory of the author: John Gillespie Magee, Jr. (b. June 9, 1922 – d. December 11, 1941); an American aviator with RCAF and son of Christian Missionaries.

I trust your flying in 2018 was memorable and I hope all your dreams of flight become reality in The New Year. Merry Christmas and Shalom.

Thanksgiving 2018

It’s Thanksgiving week. A time to stop and be still. A time to reflect.

With gladness, our founding fathers acknowledged the benefits and mercies which God bestowed upon them. Let us not neglect praise to Him for our many good provisions. The ordinary and extraordinary – such as, General Aviation. Our opportunity to ride modern chariots in God’s magnificent heavens! And, to share that experience with family, friends and the next generation.

Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends (Ps 100:1-5; Ro 6:23).
