Goodbye to Skybus.

Well, it's a sad day guys. Super low rates on flights are no more, as skybus is calling it quits. I copied the announcement from their website and posted it below. Join me in a moment of appreciation for a great company that I never had the chance to use. sad.

Skybus Airlines will cease all operations effective Saturday, April 5.

Skybus struggled to overcome the combination of rising jet fuel costs and a slowing economic environment. These two issues proved to be insurmountable for a new carrier.

We deeply regret the impact this decision will have on our employees and their families, customers, vendors, suppliers, airport officials and others in the cities in which we have operated. Our financial condition is such that our Board of Directors felt it had no choice but to cease operations.

Passengers holding reservations for Skybus flights scheduled to depart on or after Saturday, April 5, 2008 should contact their credit card companies to arrange to apply for a refund. More information for customers and others will be made available on the Skybus web site (www.skybus.com) as it becomes available.

All flights for Friday, April 4 will be completed. Passengers holding reservations on flights for Friday, April 4 should check in for their flight at a Skybus kiosk at the airport instead of the Skybus website.

The God I Serve

So I've been going through the bible this year attempting to specifically note the character/interests/desires/aversions/etc. of the God i serve. The God who is. This love of mine. I seem to know more about my friends than I do about the lover of my soul and that was a challenging truth staring me in the face every day. still is. I'm excited about this journey - this study. I was encouraged recently at my church when a speaker came in to tackle the topic of the new atheism - he reminded us that God calls us to love him with all of our MINDS. As he said that, I felt as though there were a spotlight directly on my chair, as it was clear to me that I have focused too heavily on attempting to glorify the Lord by loving Him with my heart (which we are also called to). However, I realized that my heart has been weighed down to love without more knowledge to lead it to love more intimately. It makes so much sense to me now - to love Him with all my mind will affect how I am able to love Him with all of my heart, which will then affect how I can love Him with all of my strength - as my love will overflow from mind, to passion in heart, to strength in action. :) God is so good in every command - in every instruction given to us, His children. His creation. His.
Each nook and cranny of His Word is for our good and His glory.

I needed that reminder - I hope it encourages you too. Love Him. fully.
