The skies above do not look like this today! Oh well, we can deal with it. Let's all meet here by this balloon, when it is warm and we can go for a ride! I guess we all couldn't fit but we could give it a try! It doesn't sound so exciting if we are all crunched in there together.

I have never taken a ride in a hot air balloon. How do you steer that thing? Not knowing how it works could keep me on the ground. I am not a risk taker. My brother and I were very calm as children, but then Allison was born, and she was full of energy. She made us do all sorts of things that we wouldn't have done otherwise, especially at Amusement Parks.

Maybe your the sibling that likes to do the most exciting things and everyone else thinks your crazy?I wonder how Jesus' siblings felt about his life? He was definitely a trend setter, he disturbed lots of people's ideas about what was acceptable to God. He sent the pharisees scratching their heads when He would speak to them. What they missed was the heart attitude. Jesus wanted them to see that what they did wasn't as important as why they did it. The rich young ruler went away from Jesus with much confusion, because Jesus told Him to give away everything that He had, and too much of His heart was wrapped up in those things.

I know that I can get caught up in things way too easily. When shopping with a friend, I can be so sure that I need these new shoes, because I may never find them again! When I get home I try to explain to my husband why I need them. He doesn't care, but I feel that I have to state my case. Of course shoes won't throw me off, but even simple things can turn into more serious problems. Its called materialism, and the boundries can be  different for each of us. It's all about our heart attitudes.

"Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." {Proverbs 4:23}
