As they do in heaven, they also do on earth, so all religions teach us. Earthly flights, commercial or cargo, all know, begin with aims/objectives of travel – pilgrimage, diplomatic, business, medical, social, pleasure etc
As such, for any of the above-stated reasons, travellers/passengers must obtain international passports, tickets, visas, TA, among other requirements.
For celestial travels from heaven to earth, God and the angels are in total control of destinations, date and time of departures/arrivals on earth of human beings, and indeed of all His creatures.
70 years ago, all living human beings, in particular, in-coming Septuagenarians, were being prepared for their departures from heaven to earth, my humble self, Oloye ‘Lekan Alabi, Ekefa Olubadan of Ibadanland and the first Culture Ambassador of the National Museum and Monument, Ile Ife, inclusive.
Thus, our safe arrivals on Friday, October 27, 1950 – 70th anniversary 30 days away from today, Sunday, September 27, 2020.
And since God cherishes thanksgiving, all in-coming Septuagenarians, dotted in different spots in the world, are getting ready to offer thanksgiving to our benevolent Creator, Guide and Guard, come Tuesday, October 27, next month.
Like the favoured billions before us, we too shall, God willing, with our families, friends and well-wishers, joyfully sing songs of praise for His enduring protection, love, the forgiveness of sins, amazing grace, victories and peace of mind.
Coincidentally, today is WORLD TOURISM DAY. I wish tourists worldwide safe and pleasurable flights/sails/journeys. Moreso in this cautionary COVID-19 pandemic time. Please, stay safe.
