I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Happy Birthday to my niece, Allyssia !
And today was her birthday. We went out to sit in the driveway to play, and she was wearing shorts. She didn't like crawling on the rocks on her bare knees, so I dug out an outfit that had belonged to my granddaughter 6 years ago........this little set of overalls and red onesie. Zoe wore them at around 4 months of age, but Allyssia is a petite baby. They fit more like capris than long pants, but it covered her knees, so she was happily able to crawl around, sufficiently protected.
Then while I was preparing dinner tonight, I received the most precious phone call.........Zoe, my 6 1/2 year-old granddaughter, called to sing a song to me that they had prepared at school for assembly. It was a song celebrating "grandparents' day" !
I didn't even know today WAS grandparents day, but thankfully.......and my LORD is so good this way,.......I got to spend it with a baby in my arms, and my own grandchildren singing to me and Papa on the phone !
Aren't I blessed?
Praise the LORD !
