The Riches of His Blessings
"Your greatest contribution to the kingdom of God may not be something you do but someone you raise."
Happy Thursday to you. For many it is a short work week and tomorrow starts the festivities. Recently, our oldest daughter Carrie and hubby Brent, had this family photo taken. We just loved it and of course loved the sentiment below it. We are so very blessed by both our daughters, sil's and their kiddos-our precious grands. Today, hubby is working with the two boys in this photo on the roof of a climbing structure. Originally it was made of canvas, but in the high Colorado wind and heat, a decision was made to do it in wood. They have been working on it this week, in the hopes of getting it done for their annual 4th of July party. I think they will have it finished. Tomorrow, hubby and I are having a gathering of some of our neighbors, to welcome a new couple onto the block. We are hoping it won't be too hot, because murphy's law took effect this week when we found out our a/c was broken. Ugh! This morning we ordered a new one, but it won't be here until next Thursday. I've dusted and straightened the house, need to vacume and polish the floors besides getting food together tomorrow. It will be simple-wine/tea/water and appetizers. Right now, I'm going out to dead-head my roses and other flowers and then will polish the floor later. I hope whatever you've got planned for the 4th will bring a childlike wonder to your spirit. Blessings, Noreen
