Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3

It's Saturday night and grandson Jeremy, who's almost two, called a little while ago to sing me a song. When I was a younger gal, I couldn't imagine being a grandmother. That was for old people! But here I am, loving every phone call, hug, and cuddle from that sweet little boy. And in July, he'll have a sibling! Life is too good and we are so blessed. Not only are we adding a new grandchild to our family circle, but we recently added our second son-in-law. I may have dreaded the coming of this age ten or twenty years ago, but now that I'm here . . . I wouldn't trade it for anything. "He seldom reflects on the days of his life," wrote the wise king, "because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart" (Ecclesiastes 5:20).

Hi Johnnie,
Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging!

I can hardly believe I'm a grammy, either. But oh, how I love those little ones!

Sweet post!

I'm glad you enjoyed Jeremy's song. He'll sing it for you on Friday. He also loves the Itsy Bitsy Spider!!!
