At birth we were cleared for takeoff and began to practice all sorts of maneuvers.
Each day, as we mature, and take solo flights into the dimensions of life we encounter some unexpected turbulence.
Often, we are blown off course by the winds of hatred, prejudice, or brutal force.
Under the pressures of business, and home, and society, we experience vertigo as to a proper sense of values.
At times, we become desperate, and are caused to shout “Mayday” only to discover that there is no location or situation outside of your control zone.
O God, let our flight plan be your will and our true course in line with your commandments.
Then, when we make our final approach in life, may we, with all the angels in heaven, be prepared to say: “I’d rather be flying with you = today, tomorrow, and forever.”
