What a thrill!
A neighbor of ours, Mr. Ross, gave us a fantastic
family outing one Friday evening.
He knew that Nathan has always loved airplanes
and offered to show us his small plane.
And he would take Nathan up if the weather conditions allowed it.
So we headed to the local airport.
Mr. Ross took three years to build this little two
seater plane himself from a kit.
It was perfect!
Kadence and Cassia both got to strap into the
passenger’s seat and talk on the headset.
Two men just fit in the cockpit.
Waving to their Daddy in the air.
And I was offered a ride I wasn’t expecting.
The Charlottesville area with a winter landscape.
Sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains.
"Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you."
