ABOVE THE EARTH
What a breathtaking view from the sky. Everything looks so small; the roads and rivers look like ribbons winding through the land. When the airplane reaches the perfect altitude, it’s time; the skydiver jumps out and falls downward. The parachute opens and floats like a rainbow from the heavens. It takes a lot of trust in the one who packs the parachute; it must be perfectly assembled. The wearer also has a responsibility to pull the cord at the perfect place and time. That crucial collaboration determines the difference between a daring feat and a disaster. God created us in His image…as perfect as a human can be. If we follow his plan for us our life will come together as He wills. This week, visit your chosen house of worship; your life can be close to heaven on earth.

It’s easy to smile at a cheerful person, but how much greater the blessing to try to cheer up a discouraged or angry person. Joyfulness is contagious! Paul writes in his letter to the Romans (1:1-12), “For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each others faith, both yours and mine.” Share your joy with others at your house of worship this week; God will smile on you!
