"WHY DON'T SHE WRITE?"

I have to admit I was shocked when I took a look at my blog and realized I had not posted anything for a week.  I wondered if you were thinking "Why don't she write?"  HaHa.  Well a ton of things have been going on and my computer was not on the list.  Two graduations that I wasn't able to attend, but got a huge poster of Marc from his graduation fans.  He's the grandson that will be getting married July 1st.

Our grandson Kaleb graduated today from Greenville College in Illinois, and we were able to watch it live on line...Now that kind of technology I like!! 

 Today was so very special.  Had lunch with some family and our future granddaughter, Amanda.  The cafe was right on the beach.

 The Beach Comber at Crystal Cove, Newport Beach.  Just darling and it was so fun to share it with my "girls".

 Our granddaughter, Monique on the left, and Marc's bride to be is my new granddaughter, Amanda.


 The food was served beautifully.  This was Amanda's breakfast.

This was mine.

Daughters, granddaughters, daughter in laws and sister in laws...A whole lot of girl fun time.

So that's why "She didn't write"..HaHa.

THOUGHTS FOR SUNDAY





The precious words of God revealed in his Holy Word.

Isaiah 55:11  "So is my word that goes out from my mouth;  It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."


Your Word is alive and creative, Lord.  Like rain and snow, it goes forth from You in productive power, fulfills its destiny and return to You again overflowing with its harvest: the high praises of Your people whom You save, deliver and bless,  Drench us, Father, in your Word.  Nurture us in its instruction and power so that we can discern Your will for our lives.  I love You.  Amen.


 "God did not write a book and send it by messenger to be read at a distance by unaided minds.  He spoke a book and lives in his spoken words, constantly speaking his words and causing the power of them to persist across the years."  ~~A.W. Tozer (1897-1963)

A SWEET LOVE STORY


They met in Kindergarten.  Our grandson Marc and his bride to be, Amanda will be married on July 1st.  They attended Calvary Chapel Christian School from K-12.  

They started dating their last two years of high school, and have not had other boyfriends or girlfriends since.  They are a sweet Christian couple and have honored Christ in their relationship.
 
She had a beautiful bridal shower Saturday and I'm so excited to have a new granddaughter and pray their marriage will be as sweet as their love story.

A sweet love story indeed!

TWO OF MY SPECIAL GIFTS


I found this poem on my desk Sunday Morning!  What a special "homemade" card from my dearest and his love for me.  To good not to share his poetic expertise......


Image result for mother's day
Poems are sweet but not always complete,
Songs are swell but never totally tell,
Words convey but never fully say,
Thoughts are kind but sometimes lack time,
Imagination is great but not always adequate,
Memories are fine when you can call them to mind,
Time is limited so I feel inhibited to fully explain the joy I feel in this articulation of my admiration for the woman I love who was sent from above.  Happy Mother's Day to my bride, my wife and the wonderful mother of our children.   ~ Love without limits, Don 
(is that not just precious)

Then Issac and Matthew gave me a very special gift with much meaning....The card said they love my cookies, and this gift made them think of me.  They are wonderful great grandsons.


A large measuring cup ~ that says "In Grandmother's Kitchen love is homemade"

MOTHER'S DAY




Image may contain: 4 people
 Celebrating Mother's Day ~ Thought you might like to see my mom when she was the age I am now and me in my 40's.   She was a lovely and gentle lady, a faithful wife, and excellent mother and grandma.

This picture was taken in our oldest daughter's back yard.  These are Michel's two oldest children.  Michael, who is now a father of our great grandsons, and Monique who has been married for almost 3 years.

Where does the time go...it seems only yesterday that I held my children to by breast and smelled the wonderful baby smell.

Life is hard, and every day new situations seem to trouble us, but on Mother's Day.... I reflect on the blessing of my children.  Michel, Julie Myk and Jill.  I gave you life....but you have so blessed mine.
I love you all to the moon and far beyond...to heaven where my dear mother lives in everlasting glory.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
