Last Thursday my Perspectives article was simply a powerful photo of a young boy receiving a ceremonially folded American flag at his father’s funeral. I added the words of Jesus from John 15:13: “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

Today I’m adding a moving testimonial song titled “Angel Flight” by Radney Foster. It can be heard and seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIsnD87uOeo or https://youtu.be/70Ikj1hZDnw. Here are the lyrics:

All I ever wanted to do was fly
Leave this world and live in the sky
I left the C130 out of Fort Worth town
I go up some days I don’t wanna come down

Well I fly that plane called the Angel Flight
Come on brother you’re with me tonight
Between heaven and earth you’re never alone
On the Angel Flight
Come on brother I’m taking you home

I love my family and I love this land
But tonight this flight’s for another man
We do what we do ‘cause we heard the call
Some gave a little, but he gave it all

I fly that plane called the Angel Flight
Come on brother you’re with me tonight
Between heaven and earth you’re never alone
On the Angel Flight

Come on brother I’m taking you home
Come on brother I’m taking you home

Well, the cockpit’s quiet and the stars are bright
Feels kinda like church in here tonight
It don’t matter where we touch down
On the Angel Flight it’s sacred ground

Well I fly that plane called the Angel Flight
Got a hero riding with us tonight
Between heaven and earth you’re never alone
On the Angel Flight
Come on brother I’m taking you home
