Spent all summer with the grands. Swim lessons, soccer games and practice, yoga, arts and crafts, summer reading program, baseball, zumba and so much more! I felt every second of my age and loved every minute of it. It was truly an opportunity I may never get again. How wonderful is God's timing that I had time and they were still living in the area. It was wonderful.

I was driving into work at 6:30 this morning and topped one of our many hills and saw the sun. It was glorious! It looked warm and bright and promising.
It raised a touch of hope in my snow weary heart as the radio had just announced another winter weather to hit us this coming week.
Thank you Lord for your promise of Spring.

My 5th grandchild made his entrance into the world this weekend. Tiny, red, bruised from being born face up. He is helpless, scared of the noise his older siblings make and totally reliant on Mom for everything. He is so helpless. As I hold him close and marvel at his being, a nagging fear nibbles my mind. What will life be like for him as he grows? Will he have to endure bullying, abuse, hatred, fear, war, etc. I look at this child and he looks back through squinted eyes and then.. I see hope. The words of a Gaither song pop to mind..." How sweet to hold a newborn baby, and feel the pride and joy he brings. But greater still the calm assurance, this child can face uncertain days, because He lives" As I bow my head in prayer of thanks for this life I also ask forgiveness for doubt and fear, my Nathan can face what is coming because Christ lives! In difficult times may we all remember Jesus holds the future and we can face what comes because of Him.

Getting back from vacation, I was so happy to only gain a pound, since we stayed with family and food, eating schedules and such was so different. But, since I've gotten' back I can't seem to get it going again. I am running from one thing to another and meals are crammed in between or snacks instead. I have to get back on track with the exercise too. I do so much better on a schedule but my life never stays on a schedule. This week I watched a video by Tennie McCarty and food additions, I am reading her books.
