Skype, your it!

My Sister (elder x1) was so sweet to send several little gift.
She lives on the East coast now.
That is her "live, real time"on my monitor.
Is that cool or what?~!
She was able to watch the family open gifts.
This is the first year for her to not be with her son here.
That is the camera on top of the monitor.

So she sent a gift box to our home with some gifts for my nephew (her son) and some of our gifts to his home.
He came with the Elf bag she sent him this year.
It had been the tradition they had had during his youth.
He is a young single father.

Cousin "call him Sun" is a very strong vibrant young man now.
My Mr and I watched this young man grow from early childhood.
We often took him on outings.
Amazing to watch children grow into adult hood.

My kids can not get enough hard play.
In therapy they call it heavy proprioceptive play.
My little ones have sensory integration dysfunction and they can just suck up any heavy play they can get.
I wish I could of had my nephew around when they were little , but he was off getting an education of sorts.

Look at dove it is just almost to exciting for her.
She does that funny fidgeting thing when she gets very excited.
Too cute!
She rubs her fingers all over her face and through her hair.
I think it helps her manage the mixed up sensory signals.
Sometimes just on her face and hides her face in it with the biggest grin.

Her feet!
Look at the strength of that young man!
He has the sweetest heart.
He knew us in our glory years when we took him on hikes and dune buggy trips.
That was many years ago in our early marriage.
He is my nephew from my sister one older than I.
(I am the youngest of eight, 7 living)

The fan was off,but I was watching them closely. It is a very high ceiling in there.
Daddy man walked around the corner and nearly had a heart attack!
I think Sun slept well that night, I know the kids slept in the next morning.

That child weighs 75 pounds and Dash just over 50 pounds.
I was concerned for Suns shoulders.
He is a ray of light, such a beautiful young man.
Our Lab was right in there watching them and seeing that Sun was not hurting the kids.
What a good dog.

Your family is the definition of love.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
