Thoughts from the Sky

As we left Baltimore, the ground was covered with snow as far as the eye could see. The further we ascended into the sky, the snow seamlessly transitioned into clouds until the white was no longer below us but around us. During the flight, I began reading “Simple Spirituality: Learning to See God in a Broken World” by Christopher L. Heuertz. His first chapter commented on his thoughts of true humility, and as I looked out on the vastness of white outside my window, I couldn’t help but feel humbled.

Looking down at the ground on the flight to Dallas reminded me of Brent Good’s work. I wonder if he found his inspiration traveling between PA and Dallas during his grad school years.

A change of perspective can be everything. Flying above the storm clouds reveals only blue sky and sunshine, while standing below gives you only darkness and rain.

Clouds make me want to jump into a swimming pool full of cotton balls.
