By the time I got into the kitchen today, I was itching to putter around, cooking, cleaning, setting the little alfalfas to sprout, making a couple of batches of granola, and baking a huge batch of chicken to rescue it from going bad.
But I do want to chronicle some things from our trip to America. It was the ultimate good birthday gift, made better in that I didn't have to do it alone, but Josh was with me.
While we were in the neighborhood, we went to visit a bridge where we used to walk, and we enjoyed memories. Josh was maybe 4 the last time he was there, but he remembered.
That was a fun project. I got to see pictures of my life from age 16-26, mainly, as well as my parents' wedding and honey moon at Niagara Falls. There was my first missions trip to Mexico way back in 1982, and some of the second Mexico trip, in 1986, with the Bob Jones Mission Team. I delighted to see my teaching days in Peru, and some of my cute little students who are now big grown up people, and I loved sharing some of these pictures with the family. I'm having a good life! I praise the Lord! Following Him fills a life "with all precious and pleasant riches." No regrets here, not on the parts where I've obeyed.
My son in law Ryan and I had a fun moment
making a snow toddler, with a pine cone nose.
April could be quite warm, but this one hasn't been yet. I was thrilled to see and enjoy snow for a change.
Pippin, my sister's dog, was not so thrilled about the snow, but quite pleased to hang out by the fire. He will be 15 in June, so I guess he's earned the right to the pampered life.
Four generations of funny people! My Mom, our daughter Evangel, me, and Clarity, our granddaughter, all with fake braids. Our pastor wasn't too impressed when we brought them to prayer meeting for head coverings. We didn't actually keep them on, just long enough to scare him.
This is a photo-driven post, showing what I had pictures of, not necessarily the most important things. Just a glimpse, but some precious family time there, the issues of Life. (Proverbs 4:23)
