Memories of Ohio

The RV nestles among fall-colored trees near Atlantic City, New Jersey. While I gaze out my window lazily planning my day's events I remember the active toddlers in Ohio recently "left behind" as we now enjoy the company of our eldest son, Jacob and his lovely wife, Stacia.
Here are a few of my thoughts in pictures:

Helping Nani clean the house.

Not to be outdone by brother!

Fun in the backyard.

Nano joins the fun!

Swimming in October?

Playing hide and seek with Nani!

Grandchildren are INDEED one of God's greatest blessings!!

A precious time!

One of the most precious times of my day is when I lay in bed at night with my three year old grandson, Christian, and listen to what he is learning in his Sunday School class, from his mother, and even from his grandmother.

His first Bible memory verse:

"God saw everything he made and it was good." Genesis 1:31

The first song he has learned to sing from beginning to end:

"Jesus loves the little children,
all the children of the world,
red and yellow, black and white,
they are precious in his sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world."

His comments about Jesus:

He is mighty and strong.
He lives in my heart.

The recent song Nani and Christian sing together everynight:

"Only a Boy Named David..."

God is so faithful to allow me to experience Psalms 71:18
"Even when I am old and grey, do not forsake me, O Lord God, til I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come."
