Snow Day!

Snow had fallen over night and the darkness had given way to a cold but beautiful winter morning.  The earth, at least from my window, which was brown the day before, was now glazed in shimmering white.  "NO SCHOOL" scrolled on the TV screen. It's a SNOW DAY! An...

Fishing

Last spring the youth group at our church sponsored a fishing tournament. The team of two paid an entry fee of $25.00 with all proceeds going to their summer work/witness trip to Arizona. My 16 year old grandson willingly agreed to be my partner. That in itself was a...

Don’t Eat The Play Dough

As a child, my mother and I would make our own clay to shape and mold designs. I actually have a recipe: flour, salt, creme of tartar, water, corn oil and food coloring. It was fun to play with and all I had. Our girls played with homemade clay and then purchased play...

What is Real

"Grandma, will you tell Brenna that Santa Clause isn't real!" What?!!! I thought to myself. May I say in two seconds, I had at least 4 different answers to this timely question spinning in my mind. This is a job for super-grandma, Lord help me!, because Brenna is not...

Agape Love

Much to grandpa's dismay, the grandchildren refer to our home as Grandma's House.  He wonders why it is never Grandpa's House, because it's his home too.  I have my theory, but grandpa does, from time to time, attempt to get the attention directed to him.  Grandpa can...

These materials are phenomenal,

life-changing. I know I am accepted by my Heavenly Father. His love is constant and continuous. I was bought with a price and I belong to God. It's what I wish I would have been taught when I first became a Christian.
