Advent Week One “On coming to the house, they [wise men] saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.

She fixed the seat belt around her and looked forward, seeing only the yoke. “I can’t see!” she pouted. “Here this will help.” Jenna held her up and slid a seat extension under her. Lena sat down and a big smile covered her face. “Much better,” she said. “I’m ready.” “Let’s get this plane in the air, Lena.” Jenna gave instructions to all the girls at Aviation Boot Camp. “I like your confidence, Lena.” Jenna smiled as she lifted the plane off the ground and started the downwind leg of the flight. “I like your confidence too, Miss Jenna.” “Since you can’t touch the rudder pedals, I’ll do...
