 Family Parable (Part Seven) Conversation on the plane
JOHN:  Considering we drove fifty miles to the airport
            We made good time with the traffic report
            I will get our luggage checked in
            We will be ready to board the plane

SALLY:  If our flight had not been delayed
              We would have missed our plane today
              Whatever caused the medical emergency
              I pray they are okay now and in recovery

(Loud speaker flight 113 is now boarding at gate 3)

JOHN:  That's our flight, non-stop to Houston
            In three hours, we will be with our son
(prayer to God)
SALLY:  Lord, You have brought us this far by Your hand
              Grant us traveling mercies and protect Tom by Your plan

(Find their seats on the plane)
JOHN:   I wish that dad  and I could get along
             What have I done so terribly wrong
             Will God hold me responsible for Tom
             When he called, I did not listen to him

SALLY:  I think your dad still blames himself inside
              From when your mom committed suicide
              After losing your sister they named Melony
              Taking her life was how she ended her agony

JOHN:  Maybe dad is afraid that if something happens to Tom
            He will not be able to handle more grief and carry on
SALLY:  You could be right, but let's not worry about that now
               I know God will give us strength through this somehow

JOHN:  I want to know more how I can have your faith in God
            But I am afraid of what that would mean on the road I trod
SALLY:  God understands all the fears and doubts on your part
              Just come to Him with simple faith and open your heart

SALLY:  After my parents divorced when I was ten, I had fears
               I had already invited Jesus in my heart, but I shed tears
               My dad had been having an affair and came home late
               It hurt that he loved someone more and I wanted to hate

SALLY:  But I began to see more and value God's unconditional love
               Then God sent a caring man in my stepdad who fit like a glove
               It took time, but our family became whole again once more
               Even in the bad times, we can still praise God forevermore

JOHN:  Honey, thanks for sharing from your heart so honestly
            Let's talk more about this later, I am closer to being ready

(Loud speaker:  We are now landing in Houston
and we hope you enjoyed your flight)

JOHN:  Well, we are finally here, safe and sound
            Praise and thanks be to God all around
            Once we get our luggage and a rental car
            Then we will call the hospital and go there
