May I Alway's Remain "Timeless"

I was thinking this past week about being timeless, like my blog name. It was meant to be clever at first ( whether it is or not is in the eye of the beholder I suppose (: ). On Valentines Day I recieved these beautiful roses from my very thoughtful husband, and I was very thankful. But earlier that day I was having one of those pivitol moments of do I see God today?; or do I choose to be in a emotional day for whatever reason? Let me explain....Bob had been gone for 3 days by this point. On Valentines morning I woke up , worked out, had my devotions,nothing out of the ordinary, but just felt out of sorts. Could be hormones but I don't like to give in to those.A little later in the morning I got a phone call from our grandson. It was so very sweet, he asked me what I was doing and if anyone was here, no one was here and I hadn't recieved my valentine yet. He was distrubed by that and he told me I should call Uncle Bobby and Autie Tiffany or Auntie Debbie to come over. Then he told me I will buy you a Christmas present and it will be a big one but I have to ask my mom and dad first. But I thought how sweet of our loving heavenly Father to send me that special phone call because my emotions were trying to drag me down. But what made me think that day as well as many others in my life is of Joshua 24:15 ....choose for yourselves today whom you will serve.....but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. My prayer was of thankfulness for such a sweet and thoughtful grandson and may I ALWAYS be teachable and timeless in my learning and yearning for what God has to teach me. That day I could choose to be in a frump or allow myself to see the beauty that God has for me in each day.

These are some pictures I thought would be fun to share:

This black squirrel is beautiful, but we are not on good terms, he is destroying my bird feeder! Since I have taken his picture he has not been back, he must've known I am not happy with him. (:
Bob helped with our niece's derby car for AWANA, her sister did the design of the body of the car, and another sister did the spider design on the roof of the car.

The other siblings had a tae-kwon-do tournament and came home with beautifu trophies...just wanted to show them off!!!! (:
So much to be thankful for!!!

Thanks for sharing that mom, what a neat story of how God was working! I read it to Big C and half way through as he heard the grandson part and what what said, he tapped me and pointed to himself, I thought it was so sweet. A great reminder for all of us about the choices we make!:0)

Thanks for sharing, Mom. God has really been working on my heart and attitude lately about His will for my life right now. It was encouraging (and maybe a little not encouraging) to know that it is an ongoing process. The faith of a child, huh? We love you.

Thanks Mom. Good stuff! I think most everything we face in life somes down to choices in the end. If only we would always choose well as you did huh?
