but, man oh man...
been feeling pretty nasty!
i am going to post
of our july so far-
we had a 1st birthday celebration-
& had a bit of sparkler fun on the 4th-
went to the local parade with the two grandsons-
family reunion time at the lake-
vegas get-away with our friends-
yesterday we had a family day
here in our backyard,
our friends TWIN grandsons
came to play with our grandsons
and all FOUR boys had a great time together-
after seeing my july in photos
i think this ol' granny needs a nap! LOL
i hope this finds you well and happy.
yesterday, our sermon was all about
being grateful. having a grateful heart.
our pastor shared this quote
which i totally loved;
let God's promises shine
on your problems -Corrie Ten Boom
he also shared a story
(paraphrased of course)
about a baby girl who
clapped for everything,
she would see her mom's face and clap
see her cereal and clap...
they took her to the beach and she clapped
when she saw the waves...
she was always so happy and would clap
when she saw something that made her smile.
someone asked her parents,
"are you worried that she claps for everything?"
and they answered...
"we only worry she will stop"
how awesome and true is this?
i think when we are small
we are so excited and happy over
the smallest of things,
as we get older it seems
it takes more and more
to make us happy!
i want to have a happy heart
like that little girl-
to clap and smile at the little things
in life and be grateful
for it ALL!
may you enjoy blessings today
and see good and happiness
in even the smallest of thing!
