God is Reflected in my Eyes

This entry is part 13 of 15 in the series Faithful Friday

bibleYou It is 'Faithful Friday' where I chat about how my faith in God helps me in life.

Last time on 'Whimsical Wednesday' I shared this photo of my granddaughter and of the reflection in her eyes.

I asked you whose reflection would show in your eyes? Who cares for you? Who is rooting for you?

You know who's reflection I believe you would see in my eyes if you had supernatural powers? God's reflection.

When you have faith you believe that God loves you even more than a loving parent. You believe that he is right there watching you all the time, cheering you on.

Who Do Your Eyes Reflect?

This entry is part 15 of 17 in the series Whimsical Wednesday

BriReflectionIt is 'Whimsical Wednesday' where I write about any upbeat thing that comes to my mind. Maybe I should rename it 'Grandma's Brag Day' for I don't think it is the first time I have talked about my grandchildren on Wednesday!

Isn't this just a vision of joy, freedom, innocence, trust? Wow, would that we could all be that young again, just for a moment.

Sharing this photo isn't just an excuse to brag about my latest grandchild – number four! Really! Look at her eyes. You might want to enlarge the photo, look again at here eyes. They are mirroring the two people who are making her laugh and taking her picture. Do you see them? Isn't that neat?

My Childhood Bedroom

This entry is part 16 of 17 in the series Memory Mondays

AnnisRdBedroomIt’s ‘Memory Monday’ where I share a good memory! It is good to remember good stuff, bad to remember bad stuff. Not always easy to control where your mind goes though is it?

Anyways, I am going to recall my childhood bedroom with you. The picture I have shared is not a picture of my bedroom, but it was just as pretty. My mom had a way of creating beautiful rooms.

I can picture the room. Two twin four poster beds, each against a wall with just enough room for a little table between. One double dresser which matched the beds. A closet. Really, that doesn’t sound too inspiring yet does it?

Shopping with my Dad

This entry is part 6 of 17 in the series Memory Mondays

700-01345658For ‘Memory Monday’ I am going to reminisce about shopping with my dad. Interesting that when I googled for a picture of a ‘little girl shopping with her dad’ there were few choices. I guess girls and dads don’t typically shop together.
