Thoughtful Spot Sunday . . . Family . . .

 Taylor cuddling with Clara . . . cousins

Let me praise thee this day for the gift of my family.  They are sometimes enough to drive me nuts, but I am grateful for them, and all of their differences and their uniqueness.  Let me praise thee for my children and grandchildren.  They are funny and adorable and rewarding all at the same time.   Let me praise thee for my husband - who is all of the above  . . . and more . . . in a good way, and I love him dearly.  Let me praise thee for my mother and my sisters and the warm ring of family that has encircled me over the years.  

Most of all, let me praise thee for the gift of thy presence.  I can't see thee with my eyes, I can't hear thee with my ears, but by the gift of the Holy Ghost, I always know that thou art with me, near me, guiding me and loving me,  anytime I reach out with an honest heart and true intent. 

Have a beautiful and peaceful Sunday.

Hugs,

  5. Barb, you've been a busy girl! Your kitchen looks beautiful - I love the floors. Can you come do my kitchen now?

    Great post for today, the Lord's day, and sometimes I fail the bless the Father and instead just pray for the needs of my family, friends and I. Thanks for this timely example.

    Your grandkids are precious - The birthday party pics are so cute - Love those little bald heads! My favorite!

    And isn't that the way, with family. They can drive us batty, but they are nice to have, anyway. :-)))))
