Hear "Dat" ?

I wish I had a picture of our oldest grandaughter saying this...she will put her hand up by her ear and say "hear dat?" It is so precious. Lately I have been reading about grace and I picture that for my own life the Lord saying to me.... hear dat? We get so busy in life that we forget to listen to that sweet voice of our loving heavenly Father, as been the case these last few weeks. Reading about Gods grace has been such a good reminder of His love for us and how we need to show and extend love to others. We don't know what is in store for us in the future but God does and I am so thankful for that. His timing is always perfect just as I needed to read this this week. -2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NASB
And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness. Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with results, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
So when life gets too busy or confusing I just need to remember to "hear dat?" Because I know who holds my future.
Here are few pictures of some of the blessings in my life........................................................................

Playing Hooky

This last Sunday we took a last minute day trip,this is a self potrait (: , we went on a bike ride. We wanted to get out and enjoy the fall colors while we could, it was a perfect day to go riding. The colors weren't at their peak yet but they were gorgeous!!

But.....waiting for me at home are these unfinished jobs...............................

The railing on the deck is waiting to be painted and we started another project;

laying block for our patio.But alas, I know these projects WILL wait, in the mean time we enjoyed our day. We went at the right time, because on the way home we ran into rain, and the temp dropped quite a bit.

The people on the deck are our nephews and future brother-in-law. This summer we had our first family reunion. We had such a great time. This was a b'day party the night before the reunion had started. We even had family here from my mother-in-laws side of the family.

Us with our grandchildren, we have a new grandson since this picture.

Cousins getting to know each other.

We had a very special Sunday morning service down by the lake, my brother-in-law had a challenging message for us all.

My father-in-law lead us as a family in communion...

Our niece was baptized, and our son-in-law was honored to assist the pastor from her church in the baptisim. So many special memories from this weekend. I am so blessed to be a part of this family. We never want to forget the heritage that has been passed on to us. I pray that I remain faithful, and thankful that I have a loving heavenly Father who made this all possible.
