We are so excited awaiting the arrival of grandbaby number five in just a few months! Is there anything better than becoming a grandparent? I don’t think so.
I will never forget the day we were told that our very first grandbaby was on the way. The immediate love that filled my heart overwhelmed me. A baby! Once again I would cuddle and kiss and love a precious little one; I could almost feel the weight of the baby in my arms even as I waited in anticipation.
My immediate next thought was, continue reading here
There’s a sweet little stream that meanders through our son’s back yard in England. However, with two little boys living there, we call it “The Moat”. Every five-year-old warrior needs a moat to play in, especially if he doesn’t have a real dragon. Surely there are no bad guys able to breach this natural barrier!

We have been with our grandsons most of the last two weeks and we had to be so careful when the TV was on because we didn’t want them to see, or hear, the news from France, Baton Rouge, or Dallas. We wanted to shield them from the bad things in the world and only give them what is good.

If someone identifies with a gender other than the one born with, does that person’s feelings continue here
Jake and Matt could barely wait for Cal to arrive at our house last week because they were excited to teach their baby cousin all he needed to know. As soon as Cal was out of his car seat and in his mommy’s lap, the big cousins started teaching:
Jake, age six, “Cal, this is gentle. Now you do it.”
Matty, age four, “Criss-cross-applesauce! This is how you sit, Cal!”
“Cal this is how you crawl, just do it like this.”
“Watch me, Cal, this is how you walk, see how I put my feet like this.”
“These are trucks, Cal, you play with them like this.”
“These are Legos, this is how you build things.”

We’ve been striving toward the goal of contentment throughout the summer, but I dare say, there is one area of our lives where we must fight contentment and purposefully remain discontent. There is a realm where there is no excuse, or room, for contentment.
As Paul taught we must learn contentment in all of our circumstances – the things around us that continually change — however, as Christians, we are not to be content concerning continue here
Did you get a haircut? Have you lost weight? Are those new glasses? Are you wearing your makeup differently? People can’t quite put their thumb on it, but they know something’s different about you.
You know what it is. You know that it isn’t a physical change you’ve made, but it is a change that is being made deep within you.
Perhaps it is a change that is so subtle it caught you off guard. You notice that you don’t fly off the handle like you used to. Or you have more patience with a difficult person in your life. Or you find more here
