Family’s Blood and Love

Sent to us from God above

We are so grateful

Holidays Are Family Time


Family @ Bob's 80th

22 at Bob’s 80th

Holidays are family time.
We enjoy them through and through.
We gathered here to laugh and celebrate.
We hope your family blesses you, too.

From nearly two to eighty years,
We spanned the decades here,
And each of us added a spark
To greet this coming year.

A brother from central California,
A sister and her husband from Oregon came –
Friends from north and two daughters from east
All traveled with their purpose the same:

Happy Birthday, Dad, Brother, Grampy & Friend!
Thank you for enriching our days.
May the year ahead bring you health and cheer,
And the Good Lord bless you in countless ways!

As we move into the new and remember the past,
May old friends remain near in our souls.
May our love of Life and the Lord permeate our acts
And reflect in our daily walk and our goals.

Happy New Year!
Happy Birthday!
and
God Bless You!

What did you do to ring in the new year??

Have a Very Happy New Year!

I hope it starts off and ends on the right foot!!

❤ God Bless You ❤

Happy 80th


Living to be eighty

Takes health and love galore.

But living to be ninety

Takes a heck of a lot more.

So what’s the magic secret?

What’s  longevity based upon?

Ask a host of a octogenarians

They’ll describe a marathon.

Life’s a race to finish –

And your run has highs and lows,

But if you’re extra blessed, then

You’ll have more friends than foes.

So keep on track and step up

To the line every single day.

And if you’re blessed as this guy is,

You’ll be 80 pushing 90 someday!

Happy 80th Birthday, Bob.
It’s been a great race so far.
Ninety — here we come!
Keep smilin’ –  wherever you are!!

Mother-in-Love


Do you have a Mother-in-Love?

That’s the term my daughter uses to describe
her mother-in-law.

I like that reference, don’t you?

Here I am with my son’s Mother-in-Love
and my granddaughter, Hope.

Time with family
while we celebrate Christ’s birth
is what this season is all about!

My great-grandson is experiencing his first Christmas
with his maternal grandparents.
Ah, the wonder of it all!!

We had fun visiting the area today where
gold was discovered in California.

Who did you spend this time after Christmas Day with?
Did you travel somewhere?

Yet Another Day


This little 3″ x 5″ book titled,
Yet Another Day
was copyrighted in 1905.

My mother-in-law bought it at a flea market for $1.00
in about 1959. I inherited it from her.
This note is in the inside front cover:

The title page tells you the book, written by Rev. J.H. Jowett, M.A.,
is intended to be used as a prayer for every day of the year.

The copyright page gives valuable tips,
as valid today as they were 113 years ago!

Today is December 22nd.
The prayer for today is one I want to share with you.
(I pray I am not breaking copyright laws by sharing this!)

Pray with me, will you?
(And enjoy the beautiful, lyrical language of 113 years ago.)

“Lord of all life, wilt Thou quicken me in the ministry of Thy life-giving Spirit? May no part of my being remain in deadly insensitivity. May I be alive unto God! May all my powers aspire after Thee, as flowers after the sun.”   AMEN!
