Flyers face downdrafts,

Things that send them plummeting from the skies.

This week

They hit,

The downdrafts.

They were all minor.

That makes it worse.

How can I succumb

To such minor challenges?

A slow computer

When I could simply use my husband’s.

A mild virus

When so many suffer from

Debilitating diseases and chronic conditions.

Lack of motivation

When family and clients alike are not pressuring me.

A cold house

When so many have no shelter from the elements.

Expressions of concern

When vast numbers have no-one who cares for them.


When I have the wherewithal to accomplish

What needs to be done.

Times of…




Reminders that anything good in me

Is not because of some innate value

But divine grace.

I must cling to that truth

And once again

Take to the skies.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come…(2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV),
