Flying Away To A Specil Birth

While driving around one night, we came across this house. There was something unusual about their Christmas decorations, and I wanted a better look. So I returned in the daylight.
It was worth coming back! What I had seen was a couple of penguins in a hot air balloon getting ready to fly away!!

And I think I know where thy were going in such a hurry! You see, penguins can't fly, so they got this balloon to go to a very special birth on December 25th. The birth of the Savior of the world in a tiny igloo in their homeland.


 “Have you ever traveled to where snow is made, seen the vault where hail is stockpiled, the arsenals of hail and snow that I keep in readiness…”
Job 38

Those lights are so pretty. I like that it is colorful and bright but not overdone. I'm glad you went back for a closer look so you could share those cute little penguins with us.

I think this is the first time I've seen penguins as part of a Christmas display. They're cute in their balloon.
