This will be all, for now hope every is having a good week. Matthew 5 verse 14 -15-16 You are like light for the whole world. a city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one lights a lamp and put it under a bowl; instead he puts it on the lamp stand, where it gives light for everyone in the house, In the same way your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.
To day a slow day. tired from the week in. Our church had a 3 day revival, and had my 3 granddaughters, and we lose a dear friend / cousin this week, she was 66 years old and had cancer and she just couldn't beat it. May she rest in peace. With going to the funeral home and church it was a busy week in. Sunday the family was here for dinner and in the afternoon it was the funeral, and back to church Sunday night.We took our granddaughter home after church I think they was tired also.

My grandchildren are my joy, I take care of them while their parents work, the ages range from 2 yrs. to 17 yrs old,so you could say I'm a full time babysitter. I stay busy doing my sewing, I have always sewn for my family and I try to sew every day if possible.
