Regarding the balloon releasing, three of the highlights that came to surface through the experience are:
We were so freaked out I seriously expected there to be a note that read, "Dear Mark. Here are your balloons. God." This baby played with these balloons for over a week. They never went down. He then had to go to his other family. The next day, the balloons were completely deflated.
Completely true story.
I've wondered over the years about those balloons.
So as we released our balloons yesterday, I wondered where ours would end up. Maybe OURS would be an answer to a prayer too. Our God is big like that.
2) People we've never met are showing us how much they love us and Manny all across the globe. I'm amazed at the collection of people God has put in my path. I think of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" and the line about being rich because he had friends. Well, if that's the mark of riches, then I am a Queen. I have amazing, Godly, giving, generous, funny, talented, gifted friends.
Thanks for those who have participated. If you didn't get a chance to but would like to, there's still time.
Love to all,
