We arrived home sunday night as much needed raindrops began to fall. They are fell in abundance yesterday, and we are so thankful. We have prayed for rain, and the Lord has sent water to our thirsty land.
The sun is shining today; it is a "diamond" of a day - clear blue skies,everything looking clean, fresh an sparkling. The little rose bush I thought might not come back is sporting a new garment of tiny green leaves - fulfilling the promise of spring. It is a glorious time of year.
We had a wonderful weekend. It is a joy to spend time with our family. We rode bikes, went to our grandson's first little league game, played games, went to church together - and just generally enjoyed being together. I never take for granted the blessing of God's grace in our family. It is like a precious thread that runs through our lives, drawing us together and to Him. I am so thankful Father.
Only one more piano lesson before we take a bit of a break (a couple of weeks off for Easter and Spring Break). Choir rehersals in abundance as we prepare for the Easter services. There is an air of expectancy.
Today my Dad has his appointment with the neurologist. He is hoping to get all his questions answered. He still has the numbness on his left side and is hoping it will eventually subside. His spirits are a bit low these days. It is difficult to adjust to dramatic changes in our lives. My Mom's bronchitis is about gone. Several days ago she could barely talk, but she sounds so much better now.
So....that about brings you up to date on the goings on in my little world. One little "funny" for you. In church this sunday we sang "Days of Elijah". There is a part in the middle of the song that repeats the wonderful refrain "There's no God like Jehovah." When we got home from church, my husband was outside with our little granddaughter Grace. She began singing in her loudest voice, "There's no job like Behovah!" Papa tried to gently correct her, but she just looked at him in a way that said "It really is too bad you don't have it right Papa." and continued singing - "THERE'S NO JOB LIKE BEHOVAH!" She's a hoot.
