Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Without knowing it, I have taken on this word....ADVENTURE!!!

It is the word I use when I gather my grandsons into my arms and sweep them away for an 

The joy of getting older is you don't care what people think as you make a clown of yourself to produce a smile in your grandsons or even your youngest child.  The cost is worth it as I jump or gallop like a horse to take them on an

Recently, my daughter-in-law found this shirt for my grandson to wear when he goes with me.

Today is my precious husband's birthday.  The man I have loved for over 39 years.  The man who is the father of all six of our children, ranging in ages from 32 to 10!  That alone says it all...........
it has been an 

Adventure - An adventure is an exciting or unusual experience. It may also be a bold, usually risky undertaking, with an uncertain outcome

This card today just jump-out and said it all for my husband.

An Adventure takes risk and has an unknown outcome....that is what life is all about.  It isn't always laughing, sometimes it is crying, but most of all, it is a choice to enter into the ADVENTURE.
I believe God calls us to enter into the ADVENTURE He has for us all.  As we enter His adventure we also learn to trust Him in deeper ways. We walk in faith, through all the dangerous and unexplainable parts of our own personal adventures, trusting Him with the outcome.  

Our second son took all of us on an ADVENTURE, we hadn't experienced.  We all went to the horse races for his birthday and had the joy of dressing up, as if we were going to the Kentucky Derby.

The ADVENTURE, gave us some wonderful picture time, while we celebrated his new decade of life. It was a time where God showed me He is in the ADVENTURE.  

My youngest son and my six grandsons lead me on ADVENTURES each week.  They stretch their arms out to lead me on an ADVENTURE....life...it is risky...an unusual experience.
It has been an Adventure, this journey of being a wife, mother and now a grandmother.
I have learned somethings on this Adventure, but most of it is, I don't know God's next move.
What I do know is............He leads the ADVENTURE.

Enjoy your ADVENTURE, each of ours looks different.
Love the ones who are on the ADVENTURE with you.
Thank you God for leading us on an ADVENTURE.

Benjamin's Spring Concert

Last night I again, set amazed at our youngest son's playing ability.  He had one of only two solos for the concert. Afterwards people asked him how long he practices, they were blown away.  In comparison to the other students he is years ahead. The fact is..........it isn't his practice..........it is just a God-given-talent.  As parents we can't take any credit, we have done nothing, other than provide the opportunity.  We are now wondering where do we go from here?  How do we encourage this gift God has given him at such a young age?  We want to be faithful, while not being "too child" centered.

Today I wanted to just share with you our little's guys concert. He played in front of over 300 people last night.  His legs hurt at the end from nerves. He said he kept thinking, "don't lock your knees or you will faith", which is what happened to his brother at our oldest son's wedding.

What was priceless last night was when a friend (age 10) came running up to him afterwards and said, "Ben, I knew you were good, but I had no idea you were that good!!!"  I watched my son's eyes light up, as a peer gave him praise. I could just hug that kid!!!

This is to give credit where credit it due.............To God!!!, and may Benjamin's playing be for God's glory.

I Will Watch This!!

I have to say or maybe it is, stand on a soap box and yell, I don't like commercials.

 I remember the days when you couldn't advertise prescription drugs. Those issues we deal with in life, many things that should only be between your spouse and doctor, weren't embarrassing portrayed across the television.  You didn't have to change the channel or cover eyes and ears of your children. Even "G" rated stations now have politically correct, which usually means no moral content ads, which display non-biblical and non-moral issues you have to explain to your child.  I am one who doesn't care for this change in our society.

But before I "throw the baby out with the water" may I say, these commercials on values have caught my heart.

Someone is getting it right. They are allowing values be displayed on our TV.  Between all the negative there is some hope.

My Benjamin is one who is caught by these ads.  He is the one who catches the strong words and videos.

I hope this one blesses you as it did me.  Values are out there. Let's continue to pass them on!

You can go to Values.com and see more.  Have an awesome weekend.
