    Sunrise, Sunset

    Sunrise, Sunset Is this the little girl I carried? Is this the little boy at play? I don’t remember growing older When did they? Sunrise, sunset Sunrise, sunset Swiftly flow the days Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers Blossoming even as we gaze Sunrise, sunset Sunrise, sunset Swiftly fly the years One season following another Laden with happiness and tear   You may recognize some of the words above from the lyrics of “Sunrise, Sunset” from “Fiddler on the Roof” The words are a good reminder of how swiftly the days go by and that our lives are but a vapor. As I meditate on this I am only prayerful that…

    My Memory File

    Since my husband and I get so many notes, cards, etc, from all my grand kids,  I finally decided to start a memory file.  Instead of trying to save every little paper, I have begun taking pictures of all the little treasures that each grand child has given us.  This is my first go around.  I have lots of other memories already tucked away and just decided to start with the most recent of my treasures.  True, this is mostly for myself, but if you are interested, scan through the pictures and see for yourself all the treasure that come from having a house full of love.  God is so…

    A Special Day with my Grand daughter

    Our oldest granddaughter, Kylie, had her 11th birthday this week! We had a special day together. We spent a few hours together – just the two of us. We had such a good time! Kylie chose a place to eat (Pizza Inn) and after we got filled up there we did a little shopping and I let Kylie pick out some things she would like for her birthday. She is so easy to please and was most grateful! We enjoyed Pizza Inn, The Mighty Dollar, Burkes, Claires, and the Dollar Tree. The best part was just being together. I love all our grand kids and am thankful that Kylie knows…

    Miracle–Another True Story

    This is Miracle Miracle has a name that fits.  Let me tell you why.  First of all, Miracle’s mama died when he was two days old.  He had to be nursed along and as you can see he survived! That definitely was a miracle!   But Miracle’s name also fits for another reason.  That reason has to do with the following true story.  R_____, a friend of mine was having a rough year.  She was going through some trying times and some “down” times.  Several things were taking place in the lives of her family members. R_____ has a daughter and son-in-law who have five children and they are currently on…

    The Goodness of God Leadeth thee to Repentance – A True Story

    Below is a true story of a man that was changed by the grace of God. I am glad to share this story as I have seen first hand that his life has been changed! (2Cor. 5:17) “…not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?” – Rom. 2:4 Today I must declare the goodness of God by sharing a story with you and perhaps challenge even my own heart and maybe the heart of another in how good God is. In October of 2009 there was a 26 year old man named T. B.  living the life of a homeless drunk on the streets. He had ruined…

    Invisible Mother

    I received this in an e-mail and thought it was very good so wanted to share it with all you other mothers and grandmothers. Invisible Mother….. It all began to make sense, the blank stares, the lack of response, the way one of the kids will walk into the room while I’m on the phone and ask to be taken to the store. Inside I’m thinking, ‘Can’t you see I’m on the phone?’ Obviously not; no one can see if I’m on the phone, or cooking, or sweeping the floor, or even standing on my head in the corner, because no one can see me at all. I’m invisible. The…
