Ironically, it was almost exactly one year ago, when a hot-air balloon landed in our front yard! We know this, because we were at a BBQ at the school last year, and didn't get to see it! The other night was the school BBQ, when this went over head.
The great thing about this, is I had one of those days on Wednesday. Overly tired from not sleeping well, as I posted. It was simply gorgeous out all day, and yet we just didn't get outside, and I was feeling quite bad about it. Afterall, the nice warm days are limited at this time of the year. We didn't go out at all, until my husband came home around 5:30 to tell us about the hot air balloon. And though we only had 45 minutes before we headed over for Wednesday night church activities, that 45 minutes was fun, and showed me that no matter what, whether it is over-eating, over-spending, spending too much doing anything but what you should, it is NEVER too late to redeem the days, with the Lord's help! Too often, I, perhaps we, are guilty of just giving up because we've blown today already. I'm learning as I grow older and grow in the Lord, that nothing is too late. With the Lord's strength, anything can be redeemed!
Here are pictures of the few blessed moments we had outside on Wednesday, for which I'm very thankful.
He is so handsome! He makes me swoon!
On the way to church, we didn't have to look hard to find where the balloon landed - it was only about a 1/4 mile from our home. One last treat before heading to church.
Oh, and about dinner that night. Thankfully we had bagels and cream cheese in the house, and we ate on the way to church :)
Have a blessed weekend seeking Jesus, and serving your family!
