my head is still up there.....
i'm havin' trouble comin' down....
we went up into the sky......
when we walked in the guy who was taking us
up was so young i wanted to holler and say
'wait a minute! you're just a kid! and no kid's
takin' me up there!'
but ya know what? i thought of how good my 'kids'
are with stuff, and i decided to just trust him.
noah sat up front as he was getting the flying
i just wanted to be in the sky....
i got the back seat. all to myself.
it was perfect.
the pilot pointed out all kindsa things on the
ground. i had tried to tell him i want to just
be in the sky....
but his enthusiasm had him pointing out ground
thank goodness noah was there. he could look and
nod and smile.
that left me space to just look at the sky.
it looks completely different up there in that little
completely different from a commercial plane.
a commercial plane has its own kinda ecstasy as far
as i'm concerned. you can get above the clouds and
fly in the midst of heaven in one of those.
this was different.
it was communing with the sky.
the clouds are so long. they go on forever.....
the sky goes on forever.
everywhere is sky.
there's nothing blocking your view.
it took my breath away.
noah got to actually fly the plane.
that distracted me from the clouds for a bit.
but then i realized i only had so much time up there.
let noah flip the plane over if he wants, i need to
talk to the sky....
so i went right back to what i was doin'....
feelin' the sky.
touchin' the sky.
bein' with the sky.
i kept my sunglasses on so i could cry.
and i cried at the beauty.
i cried at the vastness.
i cried cause i knew i was part of it somehow.
i haven't come down quite yet.
and my entire being feels like a prayer right now.
