The Little Things

Posted on

I was talking with a friend about how important ‘family’ is and the lack of this virtue being passed on to kids today. Over the years we have experienced family needs and have responded with love and support. For me, this is truly a God thing and one where we listen for Him to direct our path.

As you know, we have been visiting and caring for Dale’s folks in Lodi. It has been our pleasure to be able to assist them in whatever avenue they have to take. However, we have taken a week out for ourselves in the one place we both enjoy immensely.

We are at Sardine Lake. Our old boss let us come up and stay for the week. (they are next door) We arrived just in time to get drenched in a big rain storm. Lightening was flashing and booming all around us. It was fantastic.

We realized how much those little things count – birds singing their happy tunes, the total darkness and how still the forest can be. It is so quiet here. We will get to relax and enjoy the outdoors in 60 to 70 degree weather. We actually sat out at the picnic table this afternoon and had lunch there. I do wish I could take this all back to Lodi with us!

Tomorrow we are off to Reno to see our new grandson, Noah Riley born 9/9/11I took this off a session of Skype.

In those little things that count too, family comes out on top.

Life is good. God’s love is seen everywhere.

    Oh Gwen the Skype pic came out great but I am guess the litte one is just a natural model aready… Family can be so important if you have the right family – eeek you know where I am coming from. We support our family which has put us in scarey times but one we would never trade for in a minute. We lean on God during these hard times and give thanks when those secret Blessings come!!

    Gwen, so glad you got to get out for a week in that gorgeous place. “He restoreth my soul….” 🙂

    Enjoy that precious little grandbaby. You are right. Family is most important of all.
