"Do not be anxious about anything but in everything through prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

Ain't Nothing Like 'Em

We have had our 3 1/2 year old granddaughter, Anna, with us for the past few days. It is always a joy to have her spend some time with us. Grandkids will truly help you put life in perspective. What in the world can be more important than digging in the dirt and making sand castles in the driveway? Life is so simple for her. We have played kickball, swung her in her horse-shaped tire swing named Chester, fed the birds, climbed trees, made sure there was water in their bird bath and that was all before lunch.

What fun it has been. Last night as I was putting her to bed she was a little homesick so I changed the subject and started talking about our plans for the next day. She immediately forgot she was homesick and started getting all excited about our plans for fishing with hotdogs and going to the movies. I decided to sit with her just a little longer to make sure she was okay and with the innocence of a child she said: "Gran, how do you think I can go to sleep with you sitting there watching me?" I loved it. I promptly got up and left her to go to sleep. Can't wait to see what wisdom she shares tomorrow.

Ain't nothing like 'em. You gotta love them!
