THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Son, you outgrew my lap, but never my heart.
I will be spending today with this son and his family. We are going to visit DS#6 and his family for the day. Finally I’ll be able to see my newest granddaughter and hold her too. We may just have some birthday cake to celebrate this special day! Hopefully I’ll have lots of pictures to share later on.
This will be our second August birthday of the month and we still have 3 more and a wedding anniversary yet to celebrate. It’s a very happy kind of month for sure !
Today’s pictures are of when we celebrated DS#5’s birthday last year.
If you notice the candles on the cake above you’ll see there are only three. I started doing this for all the birthday cakes I make, as all my children are getting older. They represent the past, the present and the future.
I hope you all have a super Saturday! Celebrate today!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Good fathers make good sons.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over a year and have now reached 1900 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1928. for DS#5 whose birthday we celebrate today
1929. for the opportunity to visit my newest granddaughter
1930. for birthday cake and a pan of lasagna to share
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU ALL !
ADVICE FOR TODAY
A birthday is just the first day of another 365 day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
