Grace in Small Things #107

Once again, I seem to have fallen behind but I have lots of graces to make up for some of the downers that went on around here!

1. This is so small thing but a very large grace: Christ's resurrection and promise of salvation.

2. What a beautiful, lovely day! The sun is shining brightly and it's so warm out--it's almost summer-like!

3. Our grandson is such a joy. I was like a kid again on Friday when TB and I took the little guy to Ft. Medford to play. He'd been looking forward to it all week and was eagerly waiting for us on the front steps on his house when we pulled up. I'm sharing some pictures.

4. Up, down and all around--it's nice to know I can still get around play ground equipment! Here we are on the upper level of the fort, pausing a moment to have our picture taken.

I can still swing, too!

5. For some reason, I had a dread of going out that day but I fought it off and went anyway. We had such a wonderful time so it's a good thing I did!

6. We still haven't heard from the Making Homes Affordable program and it turns out our bank didn't give us as much information as they should have ... but the lady at HUD (Housing & Urban Development) was so helpful and supportive to me on Friday!

7. Both my son and daughter forgot they were supposed to renew their car registrations! My son was pulled over by a police officer who could have had my son's car towed but instead he allowed Bill to call AAA. Now we need to drive Bill around until tomorrow or Tuesday which is the earliest he can get to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles.

8. Coloring Easter eggs with Tomas was so much fun yesterday!

9. I checked the leg of lamb in time so that it didn't become over-done! It cooked a lot faster than I anticipated!

10. I watched "Precious" last night and although it was sad or horrifying in places, I thought it was one of the best movies I've seen. I was riveted the entire time.

11. I was riveted by another book I finished in just a few days, A Fractured Mind, by Robert B. Oxnam.

12. I took on the challenge of a classic! I'm going to read Moll Flanders by Jonathan Swift. I'm not in high school so I don't have to bother with classics but I decided they were still important to me!

Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

I love the expression on my grandson's face!
