The View from Above

I was recently looking at a beautiful sight from my plane—puffy white clouds down below extending all the way to the horizon—an inspiring gift from God.  Above the horizon the sky is clear and blue.  From here it is breathtaking and striking, and yet from below it must be overcast and gray.  Perhaps that’s the way life is as we look around below the clouds and see the dull and bad aspects of life, whereas from above God observes the goodness of it all.  Somehow we must venture out from below the clouds and recognize the awesome reality above them.
