High Flight

This week has been a rough week for my ILLINI WGNB Family.

We lost a great friend last week, and I have been praying non stop for Sarah and her famliy.

If you are able to donate to the fund set up for her kids, please do.  Thank you, and continue to pray for her, her kids, and the family.  You can read a story about how amazing she is here. 

 Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
 And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
 Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
 of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
 You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
 High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
 I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
 My eager craft through footless halls of air....

 Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
 I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
 Where never lark, or even eagle flew —
 And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
 The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
 - Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
John Gillespie Magee
