99 Balloons

A few weeks ago I was at a church leadership retreat, and one of the speakers (Hi, Kathy!) played this video.  I wept.  It is so very powerful, so affirming of life, happy and heartbreaking at the same time.  It set me even further in the resolve I have about every life, even “flawed” life, being of Divine purpose and immense significance.  It’s an extremely well-done video, and appropriate for even kids to watch (preview it first, though).

About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.
