In A Tight Spot

with barely a touch... away he flew!
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;

he saved him out of all his troubles.

Psalm 34:6

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God's sight. But even the hairs of your head are all counted. Do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Luke 12:6-7)

More Fun than Scary

It was such fun preparing this post and seeing again the pictures of the kids growing up.
The expressions on their little faces
made me laugh at times gone by.

I guess my mom bought this pattern for someone else because the 1953 date is before I was born. Though I don't have a picture, I wore the pink bunny costume she made from this pattern when I was a baby.

Brenna Beans Birthday

Looks who's 5 years old today...
It's Brenna Meghan!
Sending Loving wishes, hugs and kisses to you, Little Honey!

Outdoor Wednesday ~ Rain or Shine

The prettiest tree on the street ~ every year it steals the show!
The view from my kitchen window of our shed and our little pond (now emptied and closed up for the winter)
The morning began with lots of clouds and a brilliant sun shining through.
Notice how it reflected off of the shed above.
The sky was beautiful!
Bright sun beaming through the clouds.
Suddenly, drops of rain poured down even as the sun continued to shine.
This play of rain and shine continued for a while until the the rain triumphed for the rest of the day.

He covers the sky with clouds;
he supplies the earth with rain
and makes grass grow on the hills.
Psalm 147:8
For more Outdoor Wednesday stop by Susan's place at A Southern Daydreamer.

Any Other (Grandmother) Name Would Sound As Sweet!

Title: Mrs Cassatt Reading to her Grandchildren, 1888

My sweet blogging friend, Janice of Serial Crafter, noticed that my grandchildren call me Mom-Mom (my husband is Pop-Pop). She thought the reasoning behind that name was because I am their mom's mom. Sounds logical. But in actuality it was really just tradition in our family. It was what I called my grandmother.
(I had no living grandparents by age 12.
One died before I was born, one at age 3 and the other two by age 12)

Stealing Pumpkins?

I had to grab this picture from my daughter, Jamie's facebook page. Her caption made me laugh...
"Looks like I'm trying to steal a pumpkin!"
She is expecting a baby girl in December
