Grandchildren...My Joy and Delight
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Children's children are the crown of old men...
THIS IS THE DAY... I thank the LORD for GRANDCHILDREN
...and the great joy they bring to my life. I have ten grandchildren (one with the LORD)...and really I'm, I guess quite young for that many!! As a mother of five of my own...it's inevitable that you will one day have a bumper crop of G'kids around! I love every moment of their hugs and funny things they do and say.
They all...every one of my grandchildren...live a good distance away. The visits are very very special and cherished. The memories linger in my thoughts and in my dreams. It's so hard to say ...good bye...and wait for the next visit.
I love looking over the photos of our fun during this recent visit...since they are now a military family and will be traveling the world wide! I see many trips for my husband and I in the future. My other daughter came to visit also with her two boys...she is moving also with the military...
here's a sampling of a few of the G'kids fun time.
Remember the darling little GIRL who loves spiders...well, this is her little sister's collection of BUGS and SNAKES!!
I bought "Beebers"...her very own BUG Carrier. She was HAPPY!
She could put her stretchy snake inside and pretend he was real...
The rest...well, they have to wait their turn!
Then...there is big sis who is very very BRAVE!! you know..Spider Girl!
She caught a cricket once and kindly named him "Crickey".
The boys do their share too...like even pretending to have a frog ..foaming at the mouth..GROSS!
Dish soap... bubbles!!
They enjoyed scouring the waters edge for their treasures.
and as the photo up top shows...they run for the fun!
What delight it brings to my heart as I hear the glee's of happiness and excitement of another adventure!
It was surely a refreshing time....the innocence of youth.
May we continually pray for the next generation and God's graces upon their lives.
Blessings to you..
