Joy in the Morning

Hello World!  I know, another spur of the moment post.  What am I coming to?  My thought for the day:  Joy does come in the morning!  And, what a pleasant sight I had as I poked my head outside this morning.

May your joy rise today like the balloon in flight!  Be happy, content, and full of love.  For the one who loves you the most will give you the desires of your heart.  As you seek Him first and His kingdom, you will find true joy.  The kind that busts out of you!  The kind that makes you squeal and do a happy dance for no apparent reason.

May your Friday be filled with joy as we embark on another weekend.  The balloon is rising.  Is your joy?

I told you the writing muse would hit.  Took a pretty balloon for the words to flow.  Anyhoo, thank you for the visit.  Have a grand day and remember to be kind to one another.

  1. Thank you for the good wishes and wise words. Right back at you...have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Very sweet words,the same to you and your family. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Joy lives in the simple things. Nothing ever truer was said. God bless x

  4. If that is not the coolest thing...too see a hot air balloon flying over your head. We knew a couple who had one of these. I would have been petrified to get in one because I am afraid of heights. Joy comes when we least expect it. Carpe diem!

  5. The hot air balloon is fun and seeing one always makes me smile! Seems you don't see those as much as you used to. At least I haven't seen many in the recent years. They look like they would be fun to ride in, though I am terrified of heights and am sure I would be terrified out of my mind if I actually got inside one of those!

    Thanks for linking to my party this week.

  6. my daughter lives in Albequerque,NM and one of the treats visiting there are the many balloons that you see over head each morning. Thanks for the words of wisdom.

  7. It's such a treat for me to see a hot air balloon floating overhead when I'm outside, enjoying the views of my flower gardens. There's just something calming about seeing a hot air balloon!
