Kids rock, especially on August 4th. It's Hooray for Kids Day. Who hasn't been a kid at least once?
Celebrate youth. Act like a child. Skip a rope, toss a ball or ride a bike on August 4th. Hooray for Kids!
Children possess a remarkable amount of passion. They throw themselves completely, heartand soul, into everything.
Mary Lou Retton
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
Today's pictures are of just some of the children in my life. I have 7 children and the 7 have between them 18 children. One thing I know for sure is that my life has been blessed by all of them.
The ability to stay young is to have a child like faith and my faith comes in #1 on the list I have of what is important to me.
The other day I had someone ask me how my my big family was doing and I said, it is growing in leaps and bounds. The 19th grandchild is due in November. They replied that with each new grandchild comes another worry. Thankfully with my faith, I can put those worries into the hands of the One who can take care of everything much much better than I can.
Summer is fast flying by and this week I hope to get out and about and enjoy some of the sights around Ohio. Before these lovely summer days are gone, I want to enjoy being outdoors. So if my posts are late in coming you'll know, that I'm doing a little sight seeing. I'll still be making them every day, just not always early morning as I usually do.
I hope you all enjoy a restful and relaxing Sunday!
DD has asked for prayers for her niece on her hubby's side of the family. The niece has been put on complete bed rest for the next month as she awaits the birth of their child. Please join me in praying for her and the baby.

COUNTING MY GIFTS
Children represent God's most generous gift to us.
I am trying to count at least 3 things I'm thankful for each day and then in 1 year's time I'll have counted 1000 gifts. I’ll be sharing them and giving thanks to God for these gifts each day.
824. for my children
825. for all my grandchildren
826. for a childlike faith
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
