Things I Only Think About On An Airplane


  • How often is the oxygen replaced in the oxygen mask in the overhead compartment that’s supposed to fall in the ‘event of an emergency’?
  • When is the area between each seat ever cleaned?
  • Do those overhead light bulbs ever burn out?
  • How come the flight attendants have to make the same old announcement? Why isn’t there a recording yet?
  • When will the older planes get retro fitted for televisions?
  • When does the pilot get to stretch their legs?
  • You know how they always warn about being careful when opening the overhead compartment after a flight because our carry-ons can shift during travel? Well, I wonder how many people have been hit by ‘displaced’ luggage….
  • I hate sitting in the seats where the only view is that of the wing of the plane. There should be a sign over these seats that says, “Warning – No View”. Who wants those seats?
  • Airplane coffee seems to have the opposite effect on me – it makes me sleepier, not more awake
  • It would be kinda cool if the pilot & co-pilot walked up and down the aisle to greet their passengers
  • An airplane is the only place time (outside of the bathroom) to catch up on some good reading
  • I hope they NEVER allow people to use their cell phones during the flight. That would be majorly annoying!


Do you have any strange or random “airplane thoughts”? If so, please share –


The Same Spirit


“And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.”

(Romans 8:11, AMP)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit makes His home inside of you. That’s the same Spirit and the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. That resurrection power can bring back health, strength and life to your physical body, and it can bring back life to your hopes and dreams. In fact, it can bring life to any area that may seem dormant on the inside of you!

The next time you feel overwhelmed by sickness, challenges or despair, remember, as a believer in Jesus, the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you! You may have been burdened by an addiction, fear, worry or sickness, but there’s nothing that can stand against the power of God! Rise up and declare by faith, “He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I am restored and healed because the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me!”


Father, thank You for filling me with Your Holy Spirit. I receive Your strength. I receive Your power. I believe Your Word and trust that You are leading me forward into victory in Jesus’ name! Amen.
