Praise God from whom all blessings flow for the safe return of the Discovery crew. We had touchdown at Andrews Air Force Base this morning at 8:11 EDT. There were visible sighs of relief from the news people (I was watching Fox and NBC) as the shuttle rolled to a safe stop.
I know that Joshua Whipps of RazorsKiss is very thankful that the shuttle came home safely. He wrote about his father, who is the NASA Resident Chief Engineer for the Space Shuttle’s External Tank. Despite all of his father’s best efforts, problems still remain and until the shuttle touched down he was carrying a large weight on his shoulders.
Grace and peace to you Joshua and to your father.
