While I don’t believe

If I do everything right

My life will be

Turbulence free

I do know that

I can make

Good choices


Bad ones.

Some of them concern

Obedience to the Flight Manual.

Others are simply

Good choices for me

Things like

Washing the dishes before bed.

It doesn’t sound like a biggy

And for some of you

It’s never an issue


I’ve often neglected the kitchen

For days at a time.

Since I got the place

Tidied up for

My daughter’s book party

I’ve tried to keep it

In decent shape.

When I wake up in the morning

To a clean kitchen

It always brings a smile.

And then there’s

That tricky concept of balance.


I spent far too much time

Checking Facebook and my email

Not to mention succumbing to

The onslaught of fluctuating hormones.


Social networking is relegated to specific times

After I’ve completed specific tasks.

These kinds of thing

May not give me wings.


If kept in proper perspective

They can’t keep me earthbound.

What does give me wings?

Going to sleep

Talking to the Flight Instructor

And waking up

Doing the same.

Making review of the Flight Manual

A priority

No matter how many times

I read it.

Once I’m ready for the day

I can take

My list of destination

(aka my to do list)

And head for the skies.

I simply must make

Good choices.

Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness (Romans 6:13 ESV).
