Am I Flying Yet?

Am I flying yet, or is it just really windy?  Those of you who know me, or have been reading this blog, know how much I want to fly.  Up in the sky, dipping in and out of the clouds, catching a wind current and just gliding on it.  Ahhh…  Many a great nighttime  dream I have had doing that very thing.  One good flap of the arms, and I’m up!  🙂

These pictures show Joshua and I on the ferry from Wales over to Dun Laoghaire, Ireland.  And as you can see, it was majorly WINDY!  And also as you can see, Joshua had the little boy courage to put those arms out and fly!  As for me, the only thing flying was my hair…right in my face.  haha







All I know is….there is a super cool passage about flying in 1 Thessalonians.  Check it out:

“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.”  (1 Thess. 4:16-17)

Sure sounds like an awesome flying experience to me!  Hope to see you there.  🙂

Not Meant to Leave, Part One

We were due to leave Ireland after our first glorious three weeks in the country.  We had reservations on Stena’s ferry out of Dun Laoghaire into Holyhead Wales at some unspeakable hour before daybreak.  Arranging with our bed and breakfast hostess for a taxi at around 4:30 AM, we set our travel alarm and fell into bed.  At 5:00 o’clock, we were awakened to frantic knocking on our door, and a voice whispering, “Your taxi is out there; he’s been waiting.”  We desperately jumped out of bed, threw our belongings into suitcases, and gave up any hope of showers or other waking-up mechanisms.  Our taxi driver gave us the appropriate amount of  a hard time tempered with a lot of laughter, and by the time we reached the ferry, we were awake enough to enjoy the sea and the journey.  But in the back of my mind, I thought that maybe we just should have stayed in Ireland.  🙂  This theme continued on our second trip to Ireland, but that is a story for tomorrow….

Quick poll…how do you feel about the end of a vacation/holiday?
