As I drove to the Covenant Keepers conference this morning (held over the weekend in Charlotte, NC) to get the sound system up and worship music playing in the meeting room, a man shared this story on the radio.
"As we were flying high above the earth, the Captain came over the radio and said "Please stay seated. Fasten your seat belts. We will be experiencing some turbulence shortly." Sure enough, in no time it came.
A young girl in the seat across the aisle from me sat there calmly. She picked up her book, read a bit, put it down, closed her eyes - all the while being still and quiet. Even as the turbulence continued, she remained calm. Once we had passed through that bit of weather, I leaned over and asked her, "How could you sit so calmly through all that."
She looked at me, smiled, and said, "That's my Dad, the pilot. He is taking me home."
Love it! And may you be encouraged today too, as you rest in His love and provision for you. He will get you home!
