Seattle or Bust



For some reason when I try to look at this blog I get a post from February with Old Abe looking at me, so I don't know if anyone will see this. Blogger is nostalgic or something?





I am in Minnesota today. Son in Law is out buying diapers. Daughter is at work, and that leaves me, the two cats, the big dog and the little baby girl at home. She has doubled in size, I think. And her eyelashes are coming in thick and a little curly. Can you believe her mommy took her out to make a snow angel yesterday? LOL!

It is nice to have some moments of solitude this morning as I prepare my mind and heart to travel on to my sister's home. Her husband is telling her today that I will be arriving, and hopefully she will remember. If not...well...SURPRISE!

I am singing a hymn today from childhood. "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms."

That is my prayer today. I am leaning on strength greater than I have, trusting God to hold me up as I need it. I feel so sad already, but I also feel peaceful. It was good to have a few hours with the baby. It is such a reminder of life. A sad contrast, looking at little Trinity and knowing my swet sister is at a "close" of life--even if not yet physically. But God will hold her too.

Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you.

P.S. an after-thought said...

Blessings! You must be driving. Watch the forecasts.

My husband was worried about me driving to your state a couple of weeks ago. I told him if I had no where to go, I'd call a church and ask to sleep on the floor if necessary.

What a cutie your darling grandbaby is! You know if you were really strange you could freeze that snow - sell it on Ebay as "Profile of Lincoln Appears in Snow"! I've definitely drunk too much coffee today - lol.

Safe travels, dear one, and thanks for the blessing of the picture and your thoughts. I've always loved the "Leaning" hymn, too, for similar reasons. You will understand.

Oh my, her first attempt at making snow angels!
