Mary Ann, it has been @ 30 years that I have been praying for your husband, since I would fly to Oregon to visit family. I would always pray for the pilot for the take off and landing. Now, you have to pray all the way. Jerry will soon return ,so he can take care of humanity ,as always. John 5:28,29 tells us not to be amazed, but you know ,we will be. Can’t help but love the earth ;when you view the beauty from the skies. The vast area that will be restored to a paradise where people can enjoy eternal life ,is phenomenal. Psalms 37:10,11,29 Jesus promised ,that the meek will inherit the earth as we pray for God’s will to be done on earth ,as well as, in heaven.
