Flying in Circles

I’ve been on a plane,
All day long.
But we couldn’t land,
Cause something went wrong.
There’s a blizzard on the airport,
And we couldn’t land.
I’ve been on a plane,
All through the night
I thought we might land,
Cause the city looked bright.
But then came the fog,
And we couldn’t land.
I’m getting kind of hungry,
Cause I’m still on the plane.
We couldn’t land again.
This time it’s rain.
I need more than pretzels.
Why can’t we land?
We’re flying around in circles,
Inside a big cloud.
The engines are quiet now.
They used to be loud.
It can’t get worse than this!
Can’t we just land?
We landed in the ocean.
Now I’m floating on my seat.
I don’t like it here,
Cause sharks are nibbling at my feet.
I want on a plane.
Can’t we please go back up?
Sometimes when we don’t get our way we want to gripe
and complain, but God wants us to have thankful hearts.
So the next time you don’t get what you want or things
don’t go your way, don’t grumble about it. Instead, count
your blessings and give God thanks.
Listen to what the Bible says in Philippians 2:14-15, “Do
everything without complaining or arguing, so that you
may become blameless and pure, the children of God
without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in
which you shine like stars in the universe.”
