Things can look a lot different from up in the mountains. Living in Los Angeles we had mountains nearby. On a somber, drizzly, overcast day we might drive up Angeles Crest Highway and be above the clouds in half an hour, enjoying a bright, sunny, blue sky.
Chapter 5: Swim and Fly. Lift Your Thoughts.
The skies and seas were formed with waters above and waters below on the second day of creation, and now on the fifth day God filled the empty sea with fish and the vacant sky with birds. The second day involves learning about God, about your partner, about how to love...
Your task for this fifth day of creation is twofold. First, lift your mind above earthly things to heavenly things. Think about the Lord, heaven and eternity. Think about love, mercy and forgiveness. Rise up out of your sea of worries and the mire of anger or bitterness. Second, speak with conviction about the things you value.
