It's hard to believe but most weather prognosticators are predicting more torrential downpours for later this week. Many are hoping and praying they are wrong. That's on everyone's minds in this area as we embrace this first day of June, Wednesday, the 1st, here in this fast moving year of 2016. This evening, Lord willing, we plan to attend our twin granddaughters' high school graduation. We thank God for these girls, Alesha and Amanda, and we pray for God's best as they continue to pursue the life He has given to them. They both have jobs lined up for the summer and both plan to join their brother Jimmy in starting college courses this fall. We've been blessed to have all these kids nearby since they showed up nearly 18 and 1/2 years ago.
These twins have been blessed with a spirit of resourcefulness and determination. What a journey it has been and we as their grandparents couldn't be more thankful to God for having them in our lives.
Now we commend them to God as they continue their journey, with Him to lead, guide, and direct their way. They say old people get more sentimental as they age. For me, well, it's a short trip as I think about transitions in our family and how much these kiddos mean to us. Our local fellowship is currently going through a series called Family Matters. I know I'm so thankful for the one that God placed me in and for the wife and family He gave to me. Speaking of which, when we visited mom and dad last Saturday we landed on a Memorial Day gathering of my sister Frances' family. I believe someone counted 5 generations in the photo below. I suppose us kids did learn the verse that said we should go forth and multiply. What a blessing to be a part of a large family. We so enjoyed dropping in on their special family get together. Family does matter. It was instituted by God Himself. Enough said. May God bless each one. Amen. .....More later.
Many years in this sojourn here on planet earth and I have the scars to prove it but I have been, am now, and will be blessed to have had the privilege of doing what little I've done to honor God and serve others.
