4 more to 200!

I am 4 posts away from my 200th post...not a big deal to most, but a big celebration to me! That is, following another celebration of my 55th...

My sweet sister made my favorite meal, our Mom and Dad's spaghetti recipe!

And it was super-duper delicioso...followed by fudge pie, or peach pie, Chocolate Moose Tracks ice cream and/or vanilla ice cream! What is your pleasure?!?!?!?!

I only wish that my granddaughter, Macie had enjoyed it!

And let me not forget this good-looking son of mine, Benjamin, who is so amazingly creative, even with this chenille stick my eldest granddaughter, Carleigh, had included with my handmade gift!
Brought a smile to your face now, didn't I?

Color My World...

Only the Master Artist could create this beauty~

~for our pleasure and enjoyment~

~but mostly for His glory!

Psalm 33 (NIV)
1 Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
2 Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him.
9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth-
15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

A mother’s heart yearns for her child’s heart to be protected, cherished and loved…

…respected as worthy , admired as a man after God’s own heart…

…no pretense, no emotional game playing

…integrity and maturity…

Yet things aren’t always what they seem…and it hurts……

But God…
