It pleases grandma!

Colossians 3:20 "Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord." It is so awesome to watch our little grandchildren grow up learning about how to please the Lord.

The other day, Dylan, our little 17 month old grandson sat down at our table in his high chair and folded his hands waiting to pray. This wasn't the first time he did this but it just hit me that day how awesome that he is already learning to obey his parents, and pleasing God at this young age.

He has been throwing little tantrums lately so his mommy and daddy have been sitting him down and holding him down on the floor when he does this and tells him when he is done he can get up. After a couple times of this, one day he was screaming at the top of his lungs and then it was total quiet and he made the sign language sign of all done and started to get up. Is that a smart little guy or what. The joy of grandchildren! It is so much harder to discipline my grandchildren than it was my own children. However, it is so pleasing to know that these grandchildren are being taught to obey their parents, for this pleases the Lord.

It is so fun being able to be a true grandma now, with a couple of the grandchildren close by. This little 17 month old is going to be a little jealous in about 2 to 2 1/2 months because he has a little brother on the way. I can't wait to get to hold that little bundle of joy.


I just pray that you would help me to obey you and live the life you would have me to live. I thank you for being my daddy that never leaves me, always listens to me and is so forgiving when I do mess up. Help me to be an example for my grandchildren, my children, the boys that you have entrusted to us to try to make a difference in their lives, my friends, and people that are watching my every move because of being in ministry. Thank you for being so awesome and letting me get to know some of my grandchildren in a more personal way and thank you for the man you gave me a little more than 25 years ago to make it possible for me to have these grandchildren to hold today. I love you. In Jesus Name, Amen

I'm back after almost 5 months!

I'm going to try this again. Keeping a little journal about the joys of being a Grandma, especially now that I have some of them close (as in 4 miles instead of 1200 miles.) It is awesome!

I'm not going to write a whole lot right now, just wanted to change the look and let you know I'm back after a long time.

Maybe I will get some visitors maybe not.

Climb that "thang!"

I wrote this post back in January of 2007  and I still have those pesky bugs and the enemy is still trying to rob me of my joy on a weekly ...
