The winglet of our Alaska Airline aircraft, as you can see, has a vibrant painting of tropical hibiscus flowers. I presume the idea was to entice me to book my next flight to Hawaii or Mexico, where I could enjoy those flowers first-hand, in-person. Well, I haven’t booked yet, but I’m thinking about it…

At 30,000 feet in the air, the last think I usually think of is amazing tropical flowers, especially when I am looking out the window, but, here we are. High above the clouds, I am far away from the troubles of the earth below. It almost feels like I am closer to OUR “true” home – Heaven. I can only imagine the bouquet of tropical flowers we will all be able to enjoy – each and every day.

How many times a day do we dwell on negative things? I can answer for me – personally – it happens all the time. Instead of focusing in on all the concerns of this world, find time to meditate on all the incredible things we have in store for us, when we arrive in our long-term home – Heaven. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll be greeted with a beautiful bouquet of tropical flowers.
