Catching Up..........

It has been a little over 2 weeks since I posted a blog and I have missed it so much. But, once again, we have been gone. I can post from my laptop, but loading pictures using my cell phone as my modem, just does not work so well. And, I wanted to be able to post pictures.

We are so glad to be home. We were suppose to leave again this Wed. for Point Clear, AL and decided on Friday that home just felt too good to leave again that soon. We have been "on the go" since May and have grown weary, so we canceled our trip.

We had such a good time in Des Moines visiting with my baby brother, Joel and his family. Joel has and always will hold a very special place in my heart. He was born in March before my 13th birthday in July. I have always felt very motherly towards him and feel "grandmotherly"
to his two precious children.

Ashley will be going off to Northern Iowa University in mid August and Warren will be entering the 8th grade. They are such good kids and a real joy to be around. I am just sorry that we live so many miles apart and cannot share in each other's lives more.

Of course, going to Stillwater was exciting as usual. Clancy continues to grow by leaps and bounds and is still such a happy little boy and appears to already love his CiCi and Poppa. We are so grateful that we are able to go as much as we are and to share in his life.

In closing, I'm not sure that I will ever fully adapt to anything but a traditional way of worship. I'm reminded of that fact everytime we sing one of the old hymns and this morning really reminded me of that fact. We sang I'd Rather Have Jesus and the words of that song rang through my heart and I had to ask myself, would I really rather have Jesus? Does my life exemplify that I would rather have Jesus than anything this world affords? It's easy for me to say that it does , but the important thing is that my life live it out in each day. My prayer for this week is that I would REALLY rather have Jesus than anything this world affords. Does anything else really matter? I do not think so.

  1. I've missed your blogging, too! It's always nice to "settle" back home, isn't it? It was so nice to catch up with you in person the other day - I miss you!

    You've challenged me to question, too. Would I rather have Jesus than ANYTHING? My marriage, my children? I will meditate on this this week - and pray that the Lord will only draw me closer to Him.

    Good to have you back! Love ya!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
