Times to Celebrate

Today we are celebrating many things:

–37 years since my husband and I became parents for the first time.  Happy Birthday, Nathan!  You fill us with love and pride.

–Two years since I started this blog.  I pray it is a blessing to others; it has been so to me.

–And our five-day committee work session on Old Testament key biblical terms is finished—though that work has barely begun.

And now I celebrate the beginning of a weekend and this evening at home.  Thank you, God, for times to work and times to rest.  Thank you for your presence and the hope of seeing you one day—perhaps soon.  Now, that will be the ultimate celebration!

Maranatha!  Come, Lord Jesus!

Age 4:  Why are there a so many seeds in watermelon?  Maybe God thought they were raisins.

Age 5:  My husband had taken the two boys along to town and had mechanical trouble on the way.  When they got home, I got this report:


I smile at that because it seems so silly and useless.  But how many times do I “help God worry” over things that go wrong in my life?  Do you suppose He thinks it’s funny or sad?
