Sky Writing

15 May


Do you remember sky-writing?
There was a day when, sitting in the stands at the football game,
you’d look up and there it would be:
“John loves Helen” or “Big Discount At…”
and the little plane, chugging along, trying to form the last
letter in the word before the first letter drifts away.

Sky writers were (and are) artists and pretty skilled at flying
a plane and, hopefully, good spellers.  The sky is a very
big canvas and it’s probably pretty tough to loop back and try to
erase a misplaced letter.  I leave the sky-typo to your imagination.

But speaking of imagination, if you had a big, blue sky, and you could
pilot one of those specially designed planes, and you were confident of
your spelling ability, what would you want the world to know?
What word, or phrase, or paragraph would  you put on your canvas?

What would I write?  Glad you asked.  Just two words, all CAPS:
but I wouldn’t try to cite chapter and verse (Philippians 3:14).
Some messages need to be succinct, from the heart and to the heart,
not all that complicated.
Take one breath and then another.
Put one foot in front on the other one
and keep moving.
Focus, don’t become fragmented.
Look up, not just at your shoe tops.
Press On!
It’s a high calling written across the sky just for you.

    ‘Press On’ I learned from you which reminds me of ‘Breath Prayers.’ Thanks for your messages.

    Great words to sky write. We all need to “press on” right now.
