Sky Balloons


balloon ride at the Safari Park

Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
The world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Suspended under a twilight canopy
We'll search the clouds for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We'll find a cloud to hide us
We'll keep the moon beside us
Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
If you'll hold my hand we'll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Balloon...
Up, up, and away.....

Lyrics: The 5th Fifth Dimension,Up Up and Away

Have you ever been up in a hot air balloon?

The San Diego Safari Park offers a balloon ride for those to see a glorious view of this vast refuge.

This enormous air balloon sends frequent visitors upwards throughout the day.

I recently lost my aunt and uncle. I was so very close to them and I will miss them dearly. I am comforted to know they are with Jesus and I'm holding onto the remembrance of so many wonderful memories. Have you ever lost a loved one and have felt that tug on your heart? Yes, it will pass. Love is so great. Balloon photos for Skywatch Friday

You might feel alone sometimes when you're grieving the loss of a friend or family member but He promises we are never alone. He's always with us. Cactus blossom photo taken at the Safari Park Nature Trail for Orange You Glad It's Friday. Do you have a cactus garden?

The Friday 56

Currently, I'm reading Accidental Pharisees by Larry Osborne. Oh my, it is such a good read. Now there isn't a page 56, so I chose the very last line to the previous page for this book meme.

"We can't see what God sees, which is why he asks us to leave the judging to him."
Accidental Pharisees: Avoiding Pride, Exclusivity, and the Other Dangers of Overzealous Faith

boys with mom at the park

I'll be blogging more about my grandson's b'day party at the park. He invited lots of friends and in this photo you can see some of the big boys with his Aunt Shasta, along with Ryan standing up on the ledge to the left. At first glance, this picture reminded me of the movie, Men In Black. Photo for Color Connection. Did you see this movie?
