8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
The following happens between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.
“I am a minister!” There, I said it! I confess! I am religious. Things got quiet as I expected. My new friend paused, looked out the window (for she had a window seat and I looked around for some comfort, some strength, I just bared my soul and now I am left hanging. My new friend then asked a really interesting question…. "Was your father a minister?” What was with that question? Well, the door opened up and began to give my new friend a family history lesson right up to where we are today with Soul Sanctuary.
My new friend began to tell me of her friend who is a “Jehovah” and who was trying to convert her. She like how I described Soul Sanctuary and felt that too many churches were not meeting the needs of people and that too many pastors were “presumptuous” when they were preaching. She said that she believed in GOD but was not pleased with the church. (OUCH).
Then out of the blue my friend said she got up at 3 a.m. and proceeded to fall asleep. So off she went and I went napping as well….off to save the world in my dreams.
Man, I hate small planes…not enough room for me…250 pounds of twisted steel and sex appeal! (I have been waiting to use that one…and it made you laugh)
8:45 a.m. I am woken from my dream…the drink cart is moving down the isle. But guess what they are selling on a morning flight? It is not even 9 a.m. and some alcoholic is paying his $5. What a crazy commentary on our culture…why have a coffee when you can have Jack Daniels!
8:55 a.m. The cart is two rows away….ummmmm I smell coffee…it smells a little burnt…but I smell coffee…
What should I do, what should I have? Wine, tea, Jack Daniels, coffee, beer, milk, coke or juice…oh the choices….oh the humanity!
During all this, my friend sleeps…I smell the coffee, they are one row away….
Then as I am tyoing this I am asked...
"What can I get you sir?"
