Thank you for the concern, and, yes, so many places around us are in real trouble, with damage to homes and cars, and property due to the flooding. But we are blessed to be dry on a hill, and even our town is dry.
But I did put up new shots of the grandkids, as Janet noticed. T.J. insisted that his mama call me this morning so that he could talk to me. He wanted to tell me thank you, and the important message was that he no longer sleeps under his sponge Bob blanket ! He sleeps under a T and a T and another T ! He loves the quilt ! Kelley says that at first he didn't want to give up Sponge Bob, but now when she goes in to check on him at night, he's curled up in his T quilt from Nana. I wonder if he's even noticed that there are all kinds of things to look at, like zebras, and lions, and kitties.
And Zoe called me a couple of days ago to tell me that she had finally played in her first soccer game. She said that she had scored once and Mommy and Daddy had promised an ice cream for every score, so they were on their way to have ice cream together. I asked "who won", and she said "EVERYBODY".......I'm behind the times I guess.....we didn't do it that way when we were kids !
Oh, and the really BIG NEWS ! Seth has started walking ! Tim called me the other day to tell me that he had just taken 4 steps.........Kelley was at work and Tim was so excited that he called both sets of grandparents !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
