76 Years to Celebrate!

It's my Dad's birthday today!  He is 76!  
I love YOU, Dad!  We love YOU, Grandpa!!
These pics were taken a few years ago.  The pics we take of him now, he has a blank stare, showing his disoriented look.  So I prefer to remember and think of Dad as remembering us..
Dad is not really knowing us these days.
I called him at the Nursing Home to wish him a Happy Birthday and he didn't know it was his birthday.  But when I told him, he said, "I am getting to be an old buck!  Voy Gogh Gee Ah...In Finnish, that means something like, WOW!
I love my Dad and will cherish the time I have with him.  Even if he doesn't know me, he knows that someone loves him and hugs him and spends time with him.  I am focusing on the memories and reminding him of them, even if he only knows about the past for the moment I tell him.
Be sure to call your Dad, your Mom...your loved ones today...Enjoy them while you have them!

Find Your REST!!!

Remember...your soul is your mind, will and emotions...
Sometimes you have to speak to your soul and tell it to REST in Him!
Don't be ruled by your emotions....Let your spirit lead as you are led by Him!
He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us so

He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.

We are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking
So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way

And oh, how He loves us
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us so

Yeah, He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.

Elliott's Busy Day!

We saw a dog on on our walk!
Returning home from grocery shopping, Elliott climbed into the back of the van while I hauled groceries in.
He didn't want the watermelon to be left alone!
The monthly trip to Home Depot..
Football season is beginning, so Elliott made the football game project!
Elliott went to the county fair with his brothers and sister!  He had soo much fun!
He enjoyed himself!  He even rode a pony!  Didn't get a pic of that!
Getting instructions for take-off!
This is fun!  Up, Up and Away!!!
