Today we took Miss Ella to the Bouncy Castle Place. They were late opening, so she got to actually see the bouncy castles being all pumped up, what excitement! When I was a child, we didn't have anything like this growing up. And as I listened to her delighted shrieks of joy and watched her jumping high in the air, I thought how my jumping days were long gone, but how lovely it was on this spring day to watch her jump. My heart was right there in that bouncy castle with her. As I watched, I could literally feel myself flying up into the air, even though my feet remained firmly planted on the ground. Later, as I slowly walked back to our car with the handicapped liscense, grounded again, I thought of how a time is coming when I will be be jumping for joy once again, shouting and full of excitement.
"He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy." - "Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven." Job 8:21 Luke 6:23
