Then again, maybe not

I just got off the phone with the pilot, Eddie, and he says it really is still too rough out there, and we should wait another 12 hours, or, more likely, 24 hours. So, no go tonight. Where's that Jesus guy when you need him? ("He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace! Be still!’ Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm" Mark 4:39.)

That's the nature of the beast here. But the next four days all look quite good, and he's certain I'll get out soon, almost surely tomorrow.

I still feel good, and can easily wait for the right time.

Thanks for all the good wishes! I'll get out there soon!

There is a reason for all this waiting. Sometimes I wonder what the Lord is doing at the time, only to find out later it was a good plan.

Blessings Mike.

For a minute I thought you were gonna ask "him" to simply part the sea and you could walk across??

Wow, you really must be "tapernutty!" to quote the marathoners. You'll be like those windup toys and keep going, and going, and going.
