Home for the Holidays



I have another reason to be thankful today...another reason to be thankful to be home for the holidays. On Flight 256 from Amsterdam today, a terrorist attempted to blow up the plane. Thankfully, his attempt failed.

I was on that same flight six days ago.

That's a little too close for comfort. Thankful, indeed! My first husband's father was scheduled to be on a flight that crashed many years ago, and we spent an hour of total devastation before we found out that he had had to cancel his flight at the last minute.

Glad all is well...

Everytime I get on a plane I literally put my mind at ease and tell myself to accept whatever outcomes may prevail. I cant even count the number of flights I've been on during my career spanning just under ten years--and to this day, I'm still afraid of flying. You'd think one would get used to it by now, but I never am.

God is watching out for you bro...that's for sure.

Dan said...

Ron, I've got a half a dozen stories (like the one today) that confirms for me that He is watching out for me.

Be well, my friend. Merry Christmas.

Good Lord, Dan, "Good Lord" on a coupla different levels....Sobering...Give your family some extra tight hugs tonight....

Merry Christmas indeed....

Dan said...

Six days is a long time, Hindsfeet, but it still feels too close for comfort. As Ron said, He is watching out for me.

Let there be light. :)

Hope you had a great Christmas, my friend.

Hindsfeet said...

six days or not, still some powerful perspective there...

...sad, what a world, huh? :( "Let there be Light" indeed...

peace peace peace, my friend,

Sarah said...

Thank God for His hand of protection!

Amen, Sarah.

Joy said...

I'm thankful NO lives were lost, that won't always be the case, unfortunately.

Dan said...

Amen to that, Joy. Like our former VP says, "We need to get it right every time, and they just need to get it right once." I wish that wasn't so true.
