Haven't written in awhile. Haven't had much to say...

Pictures that say it all...

Amelia...after 4 shots.  Poor sweetheart.  How does one even imagine what she's thinking?
No one has ever hurt her..."why are they hurting me?"
She looks heartbroken and my heart breaks every time I see this.  I think it's the face in the hand.

Millie and Amelia's first birthday.  Millie's first birthday is next
Saturday!  Future best friends?

No picture, but yesterday I asked the Lord to show me who He wanted me to minister
to.  In a couple of hours, my phone rang...a teary voice...can you come?   I hurried.
Listened...hugged...loved...shared scripture that comforts and encourages me.  Thank You, Lord. 
I was blessed.

My sweet brother calls our Father, "The Great Choreographer". We have been trying to
pay more attention to all the ways our Father works in our life every day. 
Circumstancial?  Nope.
Accidental?  Not likely. 
God is always moving and working and orchestrating people and events.
Why? change bring glory to Himself.

Random?  Are you kidding me?

Blessings to you!

I know we've all seen the commercials listing things purchased and then the final thing, such as time with your child...priceless.

The ages of our grandchildren range from 17 years down to 11 months.  It seems like it's been so long since the older ones were tiny.  Lately, I've gotten to spend some time with some of the younger grandchildren, doing the things I once did with the older ones: playing, singing, laughing...

Last night, I got to lie down with Jackson (almost 3yr. old), supposedly for him to go to sleep - a habit we've gotten into.

Granny: "Do you like chocolate gravy?" 
Jackson: "I DO like chocolate gravy!"  (and we had it this morning)

He loves the little projector that puts a picture on the ceiling while it plays through several songs.  The picture is an ocean scene: a whale, a crab, a turtle and a jellyfish... 
Jackson:  "Where is the jellyfish?" 
Granny: "In the jelly jar"
(He had to go check it out.)

Jackson: "Where is my wheelbarrow?" 
Granny: "In the living room"
Jackson: "I want it."
Granny: "It has to stay there so I can put a treat in it."
Jackson: "You are going to put a treat in my wheelbarrow?"
Granny: "Yes."
Jackson: "OK"
(he loved his package of gum!)

One of the songs it plays is "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".  He has it in a book and knows it by heart.  Last night, I began to sing when it came on and suddenly, Jackson is lying close beside me singing in a sweet, high little voice - right on key.  (Where's the video camera when you need it?)  I will treasure these memories long after he has outgrown lying down with Granny to go to sleep.

Women need women

There are ministries, studies, even a mentoring program with woman to woman in the title.  And it's true! Women need women.  As much as we might love our husbands...there are things men just do not understand. To my daughters and my friends - who let me cry...have a pity party occasionally...pour out my heart...not be perfect.  I need you in my life.  The Lord knew that and placed you close at hand.  Thank you!
