A Rare Man

I was reading through Romans yesterday when I came across Rom 5: 6-8 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very Rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Mell was a Rare man, he chose to die for the others on the plane…When I think of this I always
think of the death of Christ on the cross and Him choosing to die for us while we were yet sinners. He demonstrated His Love for us in this! Mell demonstrated his love for Josh and the others on the plane. What a perfect picture of what Christ has done for us. How can we turn away this kind of love…

John 14:23 If anyone loves me, he will obey my teachings. My Father will love him and we will come to him and make our home with him.

Deuteronomy 6:5
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Love Him and He will will come and Make His home in your heart!
and bring you Peace…isn't this what we all want " Peace!"

Dedicated Flight to Mell (Click Here)

Click the sight "Dedicated flight to Mell" to see "The Stearman Flight"

Brandon…our airplane mechanic and the pastor who married us in our airplane over the North GA Mountains took me up in this 1939 Stearman open cockpit bi-plane.

I remember Mell telling him "Boy…I wanta fly in that thing when you get it put back together!"

So I guess I got to go in his place…

I would have never believed I would feel such peace in the air…I told Brandon…I have a big Possum smile that I can't wipe off! After I watched my video…I couldn't quit laughing at myself!

I know God opened the port hole of heaven and Mell was watching and smiling with me!

Please watch the video …I guarantee you will have a good laugh as I fly as close to heaven here on earth!

Rev 21:1-4

1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”[a] for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
