I got to see my daughter and her family a couple of days ago.
She was headed to Oklahoma for her 20 year high school reunion, which I think I mentioned in a post in the last couple of weeks.
It's such a long drive for them now, starting in Virginia, stopping over with us in Tennessee, and she suffers terribly with pain in her hips and back when she has to sit for that long a time. In fact, she can't sit in one position long enough to do much of the driving, so Tim blessed her by taking over that chore.
My grandbabies are growing up. Zoe is nearly as tall as me (she's 12 1/2), Seth (7) is nearly as tall as Tim, jr., who is 9.
I gave the kids my bedroom, but Seth wanted Nana to sleep on the living room floor with him instead of on the couch or in the recliner. So I lay down with him there until he went to sleep, and we enjoyed a good long chat of this and that. So fun to finally 'connect' with my youngest grandchild.
Tim, jr., and I bonded over coaxing Lottie dah out from under my bed, where she inevitably winds up spending any time that the kids, and especially Sophie, the Westie, are in the house. She's declawed and knows it, so she hisses and scats when she sees what she perceives as a threat.
They should be driving back this way on the 3rd of August, heading home to start the new school year, with my daughter Kelley starting her new position as third grade teacher. They've said that they'll spent TWO nights with us this time !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
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.
