99 Balloons


In a week where our country will recognize a giant of civil rights, inaugurate a historic president, and march for life, I am reminded that our prayers and hope are more important than ever.  I’ve seen this video before, but ran across it again today and wanted to share it with you. I’m sure that Eliot’s mom and dad were every bit as proud and in love with her son as were the families of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Elect Obama. I thank them for sharing Eliot’s story with us, for opening their hearts to life, and for reminding me that God’s blessings are ever bountiful. Enjoy!
