Update on Emma, SNOW...Family time

Our Granddaughter Emma has completed  30 days alternating patches on her eyes.   I am pleased to say that it has strengthened her eyes and appears to have corrected them.  We are so anxious to see Emma this summer and praise God that her eyes are strengthened .   The picture below she is pictured with her mommy our daughter Jennifer.

Last Wednesday we had more snow, 6 inches in fact.  It closed the town down.  I was able to work from home and Marvin worked a few hours until the mill lost electricity and he was sent home.  This is unusual for the valley floor and in fact we broke a record. 
Last weekend our son Jeremy and his family came down.  Jeremy and his dad installed a new hot water heater.  We were blessed with nice weather about 60 degrees. 
While they were working hard Kayla, Morgan, Sara and I went out to spend some time in backyard and enjoy the sun. 

Morgan was just chilling out until she found a lady bug

Kayla was enjoying the sun and then found a flower and played "he loves me he loves me not"
The result was he loves her......
and then there was time for Papa to play a game with the girls

Have a great week!
Blessings & Love

Happy Birthday Jeremy!

Happy Birthday to our son Jeremy who is 31 years old today.  
I love the picture above.   He always had a smile on his face.  He loved to play outside and helping the neighbor guy.  One of his favorite  TV programs was watching Bob Villa build things.   

 We are so blessed that he has turned out to be a respectable man, husband and father and I think he is still a mama's boy which is okay with me. 

This picture is from the coast last year with his wife Sara, and daughters Kayla and Morgan. 

Thank you God for choosing Marvin and I to be the parents of Jeremy.  We love you Jeremy!

My Testimony that happened today.

This morning started out like any other morning but I didn't know the plans the Holy Spirit had for me today which has strengthened my faith. 

Remember these books I told you all about here.

I try each day to write a verse or something in Marvin's journal.  This morning I had read my daily devotion from Jesus calling, and my Heartlight verse, thought and prayer.  I really wasn't sure what to write in Marvin's book and I had thought that maybe I would wait until tonight.  I then received KLOVES daily encouraging word.

Thursday 3/15/2012
No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
~ Micah 6:8, NLT

I felt that it was a great verse and wrote it in Marvin's journal.  Then it was off to work

Everyday after I get settled in at work I say some prayers and I have been praying to the Holy Spirit to guide, teach and warn me.

Later this morning  I took a little break.   I read something that immediately made me suspicious  and lacking trust of some one.   I was reacting not responding which I just learned about last night at Bible study.  When responding you activate your Faith before you activate your will. 

During my lunch break I had decided against going to the mall so I sat at my desk and ate my lunch and read my book. 

 Below is part of the book that I read while eating my lunch (pg 225)

  "The page read Micah at the top.  She had never heard of this person, or perhaps it was a place.   Scanning down, however, her gaze rested on the eighth verse of the sixth chapter."
"He hath shewed thee, O man what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God"

I sat there in my chair as I realized that this was the same verse but different version of what I had wrote in Marvin's book this morning.  I read it several times until I got it.  The Holy Spirit was working through me as I asked him to.  HE had just taught me a lesson about not trusting someone and thinking that I have the answers for it all.  

I hope you day was filled with as much joy as mine.

The Joy of being a Grandparent

Yesterday Marvin and I drove up a couple of hours from home to spend Grandparents day with our 5 year old granddaughter Morgan at pre-school.  She is pictured below in blue with the great big smile.

After they sang us a few songs Morgan showed us her classroom.  She is standing under a swirly that she made and is so proud of.

Then it was story time for the kids. 

 We moved into a large room so we could work on the activity together.  Here Morgan and I are busy cutting and pasting.  My son Jeremy is standing to the left watching.

The picture below shows Papa Marvin, Morgan, Morgans sister Kayla and our daughter in law Sara's grandparents that were there to enjoy their great grand daughter
Below the kids were dancing in the aisles of the Church during "Chapel".  The youth director from the church plays his guitars and sang while we all were dancing and doing motions from the song.  We had a lot of fun

There was a puppet show that was entertaining. 

You can tell that Morgan was enjoying the show while she was sitting with her great grandpa Bob

It was a beautiful day outside so I snapped a picture of the girls on the way out.

What a blessed time we spent with our grand kids and family.  I feel like the luckiest grandmother alive.

Our week

We had a wintry week which caused to some slippery roads on a Wednesday.  The snow was so beautiful.  There were large feathery snowflakes.  I am however glad that it is gone.  Our city is not set up for snowstorms and people do not know how to drive in it. 

Our bible study group continues to amaze me.  I have learned so much.  We are studying the Holy Spirit through the scriptures and  Charles Stanley's book "A spirit filled life".  This book captures the Holy Spirit.  I believe the Holy Spirit is one in the Trinity, The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.  I believe that the Holy Spirit lives in my heart and HE is aways there.  HE is there to teach, guide, warn, intercede, assure, directs, convicts and illuminates.  We are never alone. 

I have been have some ongoing dental issues that seem to be getting worse.  Thursday I had a long exam and xrays with my new Dentist.   I will consult with him in a few weeks with his studies and findings.   I found out I have a cross bite and that my teeth are so worn from my grinding and clinching.  Not sure what my options will be but this Dentist is showing me the whole picture of what 20 years down the road may look like.   My Jaw pain which one Dentist thought is TMJ is on the highest level of pain now for me. 

I am looking forward to a road trip next week so we can spend Grandparents Day with Morgan at pre-school.  What a joy grandchildren are. 

Have a great week ahead!
