But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you. (Matthew 6:30 NRSV)
Charles Kuralt travels across the United States meeting interesting people. He told about an old man he met in Kansas. "We never caught his name," he wrote. The old man was a pilot. Charles and his crew were doing a story about an artist whose canvases were eighty-acre fields. The best way to view this unusual art work was from a plane. Kuralt and his photographer spotted an old J-2 Piper Cub parked in a barnyard. They asked the old farmer if he would fly them. "Sure, I'll take you up," the farmer replied. "We need to take the door off so I can take pictures," the photographer told the farmer. "Fine!" was his reply. Flying at 2000 feet the photographer asked the old pilot, "How long ago did you get your ticket?" "Ticket?" the man asked. "You know, your pilot's license," the photographer explained. "I don't have any pilot's license," the old farmer told them. "I just found this thing wrecked out here and patched it up and taught myself how to fly it."
It's never too late to learn, to grow, to have new experiences; we are never too old or too young. We don't know what tomorrow may bring, but we know that God has a plan for each of us.
Dear God, continue to help me to see clearly the plan your have for my life. Amen.
