Just a little while ago, I got a call from my daughter. ( the kids went to lunch with their dad )
" Hi Mom! We're going flying!! We're on the runway and we're going to take off in a minute!"
So I promise to go out in the yard and wave, and sure enough, I hear the drone of the plane about five minutes later.
As I'm standing there waving at the plane I'm thinking wow, my whole life, everything I live for, work for, love - is up in that tiny plane.
I must say, I had a moment of fear. Life is so fragile, I'm so afraid of losing them.
I am rather a fearful person. I fear heights, I fear snakes, I fear sickness, some unknown tragedy, conflict, pain, I am at times afraid of the future.
Some of these I struggle with daily, others not so often.
As I watched the plane bank, circle the house, and then straighten and head out of sight I felt God's love, and then his peace surround me.
"Fear not, for I am with you..."
" Behold, I am with you, even to the end of the ages."
I'm so glad for His presence in my life.
