A Heritage

For as long as I can remember my mama has spent her early morning in Gods Word. I can picture her in various houses we have lived in with tea or a latte and the Bible. Usually - if there is good weather - sitting outside, the sun working its way up over the horizon, and morning dew still glistening.

Well we were privileged to have my parents live with us a year and then the kids and I also lived with them for one of Stephen's deployments. My children all have a picture of Grandma having her time with God. They would even help her make her Lattes some mornings.

This week Caleb was sitting on our back porch and I sat next to him and we realized it would be the perfect place for "Grandma time". He got excited about the thought and much planning took place. He would need a place to sit. What would he have to drink ;) an important part of the picture. So with some work and some chocolate milk, Caleb and Kadin both have their own spot to seek God in the morning.

What an amazing blessing to have parents/grandparents that love God and seek after Him.


My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.

It is! I am so blessed to have Godly parents who invest in my children.
I have not forgotten about our families getting together :)
I am just unpacking at a slower rate than I would like.
Can't wait to get together,

I loved the time that we were able to be together. You are wonderful parents, and it is you that have been faithful to teach your children to seek and follow God. I am glad that they did notice that I enjoy, and look forward to, spending quite time with my Abba Father. I am blessed!

I love you all!
