What's In a Name?

okokok…so you need me to explain the title of my blog “lollipop and pearls”!
well, hear ya’go!

when we were expecting our first grandchild, carleigh, we pondered what she would call us…..
feeling “too young” for something like “granny and grandpa”, or “grandma and granddaddy”
(not that there’s anything wrong with those names…they just didn’t fit us)….

i wanted to be “mimi already took that one!dadgum her!

so I thought ‘pop’ would be cute for rodney and as quickly
as I thought that, ‘lolli’ came into mind….get it? ‘lollipop’?
……so I’m lolli and he’s pop!

Now the “pearl” part comes into play because my children and
my ‘grands’ (children, that is!) are priceless pearls to me….and even more so to jesus!

so, on this site, you likely will see many posts about family memories, issues, concerns, frustrations….
.......joys, sorrows, questions, etc.

one thing’s for sure…..i’ll keep you on your feet in suspense!

but let me say on the front end, it is my desire, my hope and my goal that this blog and it’s contents will honor my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ….

….my redeemer, my savior, my friend, the lover of my soul, my Creator, and the author and finisher of my faith!


p.s~the reason for the lower case font is: 1. laziness and

2. creativity (not necessarily in that order!)
