"Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him."
Truly, my cup overflows~
a weekend get-away--- just me and my dad and my tiny peanut, Lollipop...
off to visit my grandmom in New Jersey
daddy at home with my other three... conducting another Menstown retreat while we're away :)
safety as we traveled, backseat slumbers, a tiny hand to hold,
and lavendar wildflowers still blooming along the interstate
time with my dad
his love for my daughter... and her love for him
their time together... shoulder rides and shared meals, ketchup and french fries, sticky fingers and strawberry jam,
Klondike bars and sofa snuggles... Pops-sized hugs
this house... her home... God's provision for the last 44 years
memories around every corner, in every room, on every wall
memories of days gone by.
reminders of love that never dies.
Grandpop's trains... each one handmade, each one built tirelessly from scratch...
this labor of love for yet another generation to enjoy
walks through the gardens with Lolli... and the laughter, the joy as she delights in those same paths...
those very same trails I explored so many years ago
this organ--- my granddad's organ... and tiny fingers to make music once again
Lolli in one arm, my grandmom on another... my dad's tender care of two very special ladies
this mother-son bond and the heritage they share
4 generations together-- playing and laughing and exploring and discovering...
moments to cherish forever and ever
my grandmom, her never-ending support, her encouragement and her prayers,
and her gentle reminder... I love you beyond measure
and the list continues...
