MY WEEKEND / ONE THOUSAND GIFTS

This weekend we took Great-grandma and Great-grandpa to visit our son (their grandson) and his family in their new home.



These are seven of the priceless blessings given to us by a loving Father.





Little boys absorbed in a cut-throat game of chess. Great-grandpa made the chess board for them. He has great fun challenging all of them. It's getting harder and harder for him to beat them!



Resting after a day filled with activity. The quilt wrapped around J. was a gift from Great-grandma. She has made quilts for every child and grandchild and is slowly working her way down the list of great-grandchildren. It was J's turn this time. Quilts for the two littlest granddaughters are in the works!


It was a beautiful, very windy day. A perfect day for a trip to the park, running down hills and flying airplanes.



It was so pleasant to just sit (some of us) and watch all the activity (everyone else).

We went to Hobby Lobby to buy things like toy airplanes, magic markers, clay and knitting needles and yarn. My granddaughter wanted to learn to knit. She is doing remarkably well.



I taught my oldest granddaughter to knit years ago. She's making great progress on that scarf.

Great-grandma and little G. were busy coloring.



It seemed there was always a game of chess in progress. The kids were ever hopeful that they could beat Great-grandpa just once.


Four generations of much-loved men and boys. It seems I just blinked and that "boy" in the middle was a husband and father. How quickly the time goes. How blessed we are.

All dressed up for church. It was time for us to head home. The good-byes are always so hard. I wish I could just pack them all in my suitcase and bring them home.

Thank You Father. What a precious blessing to know that they all love and believe in You. We are going to get to spend eternity together - such love and grace.

Blessings,

What a wonderful week-end! Beautiful family.

Interesting that we both posted our grands playing chess - DC has a very special chess board, too - made by a good church friend.

This is so nice, Linda. I especially love the photo of Great Grandma and Little G coloring together. Just stopped in to say hello and see how you're doing. Obviously, you're doing quite well. :-)
