Magical Moment 526, "Airglide"

I had a flash back today...it had something to do with parachutes.

I harnessed up, and took off...

But the gear I wore today, was significantly less than before, and much more comfortable.

In the silent, peaceful sky, I remembered how beautiful it can be up there. Flying in slow motion...

Just enjoying the sky and clouds...

Today's scenery was just slightly different than in times past...

And landing today, was much less dreadful than crashing into a hot, dirt drop zone.

And the ride back...

Was considerably more enjoyable than previous times...

Which is better, you ask? Airborne or Airglide? Well, it's apples and oranges folks. But one thing I can say, you walk away from both with smile on your face.

and i loved the parachute you had today - a big smiley face to share with someone you love! :)
I had a smile on my face all the way through this post. I used to want to do one of those para-sailing things, but I watch too much of America's Funniest Videos. :) And may I say...you were a beautiful soldier. And it's not easy to look beautiful in camouflage. No wonder Eddie was smitten.

You never cease to amaze me. I havent seen you in your past "camo-gear" before....(my boys would love it;)...It seems a complete contradiction to what I see now. You have lived on both sides. Braver than me for sure....I would go with the smiley face parachute side most definitely!!!!!

Loved this post!!!!!
You 2 are perfect!!

But that's just me...

Two different worlds; different challenges. But it looks like you two had a blast on the Airglide...
Texwisgirl, that smiley face was actually pretty comforting!

Linda, I was dreading the crash into the water, but it wasn't bad at all. Thanks for the very kind words. :)

Di, funny thought! I wonder who DID invent it?!

Dawn, I have a feeling you are quite brave, Miss Triathlon! :) Thanks a bunch.

Suz, thanks! Glad you enjoyed.

Susan, you made me actually laugh out loud!!!

Robin, it was really neat. Thanks for the comment!
I love the smile on your face, it looks so peaceful today. I am proud of the previous service too.

Magical Moment 611, "Great is Your Reward"

Certain sounds and smells can bring to mind a long forgotten memory. For me, certain Bible verses can conjure up a memory, long, but not so forgotten.
If you grew up like me, in a private Christian school, attending Sunday School, Awanas, and Vacation Bible School regularly, you're an expert at quoting Scripture. I laugh in the face of Bible "Sword Drill." I can find a Scripture reference in 3 seconds or less. When other's have to think to themselves the sequential order, "Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians..." I'm already at I Thessalonians. It's like growing up bi-lingual. The skill is just there.
This morning, I read the first 3 words of a verse, and then finished it quickly by memory. Like the pledge of allegiance, it was automatic. "Trust in the Lord...
...With all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths."  Proverbs 3:5-6
When I finished, I smiled to myself slightl…

Magical Moment 420, "The Critter Awards"

I'm nearly 28 and I still love to go to the zoo - even with no nieces or nephews to use as an excuse. I went to the Turtle Back Zoo in NJ with Eddie today. It was cold and rainy, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to have fun snapping photos of my favorite critters.
The Happiest Critter award goes to: Cassie the Sea Otter This is Cassie's first nomination as she is a new addition to the zoo. She thanks her parents for making her so cute, and the zoo keepers for feeding her and keeping her energy up to entertain the guests.
The Most Hypnotizing Critter award goes to: The Sea Horse The Sea Horse was also nominated for Brightest Critter.
The Brightest Critter award goes to: The Blue Fish The Blue Fish and the Sea Horse are considered rivals in many aspects, but personally maintain a good friendship. "We work together in our goal to inspire awe in our spectators," said the Blue Fish.
The Best Dressed Critter award goes to: The Peacock The Peacock has won this award sever…

Magical Moment 620, "Lilac Garden"

Eddie and I visited the Lilac Gardens at Ringwood Manor in New Jersey, a pristine and beautiful state park with 8 species of lilacs and several varieties within. We went on a rainy afternoon, which turned out perfect because the rain stopped for us when we got there, and began again as soon as we left. It also decorated the plants with gorgeous rain drops, adding to their beauty. 






And now for a quick game of "Where's Elizabeth?"
And "Where's Eddie?"
~~Have a great weekend! ~~
