Today we celebrated Luigi and Liam’s birthdays with the greater family. Una’s parents, aunts and uncles , brother , sister and all the grandchildren came to Netanya to play in the pool, eat and chat.
The surprise was paragliding for the birthday boys. I had been building up my courage for weeks and knew the day was near, so when Una asked if I would like to go, the rise was on. Steve decided to risk it too
The paraglider pilots are experienced and licensed. We felt very safe, there was just that moment as we neared the cliff, it felt surreal. No panic just an interesting feeling as we simply glided off the edge toward the Mediterranean. I sang, ‘Up up and away in my beautiful, my beautiful balloon, balloooon! I just looked around. Then this little song entered my sprit: “You are the Glory and the lifter of my head.”
I just praised and watched the world from a very new perspective and marveled. Life will not be the same after we return to the states, I don’t want it to, and this is just a part – from a new vantage point!
“For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21).
