"Final Flight" 7-10-2018
I have to admit I have not wanted to write and post anything on my website since my husband of 55 years passed away in February of this year. It was hard to let him go, because 2018 held such promise for us--a clean bill of health from his heart doctors, granddaughters graduating from high school and college, going on the "wait list" in a care community on Hilton Head Island, SC, among other things.
Family and friends held a Memorial Service for my husband in St. Louis, MO, Father's Day weekend. All of our children and grandchildren gave him a hearty send-off into the wild blue yonder, where he flew for many years in the US Air Force.
One day each of us will make that final flight of spirit and soul. If we know and love Jesus, we'll wing our way to heaven. No one knows the day or hour of our departure except God, but we are wise if we plan ahead for it.
The apostle Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth: "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for our deeds in the body, according to what we have done, whether good or bad" (2 Cor. 5:10).
In 1974, while praying with some friends in Alexandria, LA, God spoke these words: "Bobbie will turn to Me, but you must have patience, My children." I believe God. I plan to see Bobbie in heaven one day!
