That's an unusual date. My grandson called me today. He's almost 3. He probably had some help.

I'm so thankful for my family. So many family with needs. So many people with needs for Jesus in their lives. I pray for them. Especially for the family to know Jesus and trust in Him with their whole heart and lean not on their own understanding.

Happy Birthday

It's my birthday, and I'm thankful for my health. I don't feel 51. I'm going to have lunch with my sister, Lorine. It's her birthday too but she's a few years younger than me. It's crazy how that happened. I remember when I was told I had a sister for my birthday I wasn't too thrilled. I'm thankful for her now though. I got to be her coach at her daughter's birth.

I was walking my dog this morning and my daughter-in-law's mother called and she and my grandson sang happy birthday to me. That was so sweet.

Labor Day

I've had a very relaxing Labor Day. It started out with a nice breakfast, a walk to the garden. Still getting some figs, a few green beans and tomatoes, quite a bit of okra. Last Sunday we planted kale, beets, spinach and swiss chard. It's up and already needing thinning.

Lewis and my youngest son, Matthew went fishing around noon. And I took a vacation too. Sat out on the back deck in the sun and read a book for about half an hour. Then came in and read/ dozed. Then got on facebook and then decided to start this blog. I've been thinking about it and today I had time.

Now the men are back and hungry. Feeding them.
I've just started my blog. Learning as I go. I love to learn new things. I love to worship my God and enjoy His creation, especially my family. My wonderful husband, my three handsome sons, my two beautiful daughters-in-law, my two grandsons who are such blessings.

I have a lot of dreams and I've had a lot of them come true. A blessed marriage, good health, a comfortable home, a wonderful family. Now that my sons are grown and Lewis and I are 50 plus, I think there's something else out there for us to do besides just working. I want to do something I enjoy and something I can share with others.

I want to paint more, cook more, and share the stuff I've learned with the younger women like Paul says in his letter to Titus, chapter 2, verses 3 -5.

I want to start a Bible study, have a cooking class and maybe an art class.
