Living Lesson: The Air Up There

Remember that 1994 feel good movie staring Kevin Bacon "The Air Up There"?  Back then we thought 10-12 feet was high. 

Today Gabriel, Ethan, and Isaac Moeller were blessed to ride with Dave Schwartz and Jack Miles in our first ever small plane ride.  For the three boys this was a first plane trip experience and for me I learned that riding in a small plane isn't that different than a jumbo jet.  Unless of course your pilot decides to bank a full 90 degrees over your church building to give you a better view.
 We were so high up and could see so much going on in the city below us.  It was amazing for myself and the boys.  We could even see my wife, Ashley, vigorously waving in the yard below us on this grand adventure. There was so much to see and so much going on, we just couldn't take it all in quick enough.  I'm grateful I videotaped and photographed at the same time so I can review it later!

Yet this is what God sees every single day and then some.  How does He keep His brain from 'splodin' as He takes in all the business on the earth below?  I don't know, but I'm grateful to have a God that has it all figured out.  The Air Up There reminded me today of just how great our God is!

"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:9

Waiting was worth it.
