Blog Your Blessing : Earthrise


My brother worked at NASA 40 years ago. I remember when he brought home a picture of the first Earthrise. The engineers had designed a Christmas postcard featuring the Earthrise. I have tried to recreate it.

We must remember the magical time when we first explored space. How beautiful Earth looked from orbit. How glad we were to get home. The magic is still there. It is us who have lost our way. Let us journey spaceward again . . . after we have mended what we have done on Earth. This is my wish for 2009.

A Great Realization: "It is us who have lost our way."

Have a very Happy New Year!

Such a beautiful sight and greeting! Our planet is so humbling when we view her from space. It makes me want to take care of her all the more. Happy BYB Sunday!

Breathtaking! ...and so important! I agree, fix here, concentrate out there... because we need to keep exploring and learning about this marvellous universe we inhabit!

May we find that magic--and the awe and respect that come with it--again.

@mama kelly, @rohit, @sue, @matthew, @sandy, @storyteller-I am so glad y'all enjoyed it. I know some of you were not even born when the first Earthrise took place, but it meant a lot to me. Thanks for the enthusiasm as I relive my past. LOL

I came by this week looking for your new post because I finally got some photos up on my blog and have a BYB post this week. . .

Not finding your new post for this week, I decided to look up the one I missed last week and am glad I did.
It is good to have lived in our lifetime -- thanks for the memories.
