As the plane sits

on the runway,

the earthly forecast

is rainy, dark, and dreary

no hope of a sun filled sky.

The plane takes off

and heads higher and

higher into the sky .

As the plane enters

into the Heavenlies,

resting above the earthly

reality, the clouds are

lit up with the light of day

and the sun is shining

with a brilliant divine

and Heavenly display.

So may we shift our focus

whenever earthly dreariness

threatens our soul to the

light filled divine and Holy

wonder filled-view, where

Christ becomes our focus,

our  ceaseless diamond-like,

light and joy filled Heavenly

view whose glory and celestial

light can never be dimmed.
