An Old-Fashioned Sleigh Ride by Pam Ford Davis

Have you ever taken an old-fashioned sleigh ride?

The tradition continues.

Even folks living in tropical climates are familiar with the Christmastime mode of transportation. Maybe a Dixie Darlin has never played in the snow or rode in a sleigh, but she can daydream.

The ambiance of sleigh rides turns couple’s thoughts to romance. Sweethearts drift across the well-packed snow; blocking north winds to keep warm, they snuggle close. I must be getting old; I’d be miserable if riding very long in a sleigh. Brr… I’m too accustomed to our car heater.

I’ll settle for pictures of sleighs and sleigh-bell Christmas tunes.

Elijah the prophet took the ride of a lifetime!

“So he said, You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so. Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven (2 Kings 2:10-11 NKJ).”

Chariot or sleigh ride?

I know one thing; Elijah’s destination is no daydream!
