As part of the BethanyHouse Book Review program, I read a new book called Flight to Heaven by Capt. Dale Black. I like books that tell true stories, especially when they are written by the person who had the experiences (autobiography). It is similar to 90 Minutes in Heaven in that Capt. Black had a near-death or death experience. The thing I liked best about this book was the change that took place in his heart and life attitudes as a result of his glimpse of heaven. I would expect such an experience to radically alter a person's life and it did. His story reminds me that the Bible is absolutely true - even the parts that promise things we cannot see or have no way to experience while we are living here. It encourages me to live life with more in view than what I can see with my eyes everyday. I heartily recommend this book to any one who is interested.
I am a wife and mother - and now a grandmother, a daughter, an aunt, a sister, my kids' "mom" (to their friends), more recently - a pastor's wife. Most of my life has been spent at home, doing what I love most - being a wife and mother. Now that our kids are grown, that looks a little different, but I love it even so. The "center" and stability for my life is Jesus Christ. He holds me together and satisfies the deepest part of me. All glory belongs to Him!
