I Lied and a Very Special Day...

Yep, I lied!  I didn't know I was lying but never the less I did!  Just when I thought I had completed all the paperwork, they handed me another stack to be completed.  UGH!!!!!  Sometimes I think it just isn't worth all the trouble...but then God taps me on the shoulder and tells me to get on with it.
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.  James 1:27 (NLT)
That's the scripture that lead us to be foster parents.  So we will be obedient...or at least try.

Yesterday, was a very special day!  It was this little boy's 1st birthday!  We started out at church.  We have something called "The Birthday Pole", which is that white pole behind my granddaughter.  Whoever is having a birthday,  goes to the pole and the congregation sings Happy Birthday, to them.  It is always a funny time.

In addition to Hoss' birthday, it was dedication day, too.  

It was a special, beautiful time.  It takes not only Mama & Daddy, to raise a child, but also grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts and uncles.  It takes all of those folks plus the church family.  We are blessed to have a wonderful, loving, church family, to help us with that.

I just noticed that my Mister, aka PawPaw, was almost laughing at Hoss trying to get the microphone from our Pastors, during one of the prayers.  Well, I guess that's ok.  I would have probably done the same thing if I had noticed!

So after church...

We smashed birthday cupcakes!  I see that PawPaw helped Hoss put some "makeup" on.  Eyebrows!  LoL  

My heart was truly blessed, yesterday!

Grace & Peace,


  1. Oh my goodness, such a precious little one. Blessings & Hugs ♥ Teri

  2. i so enjoy you blog. grandparent-ing is such a gift. and being there when one is dedicated is a milestone that not everyone gets. blessings on your lovely family.

  3. He's so adorable Pam! Love the "eyebrows" too ;)

    I hope you're having a great beginning to 2017.


  4. You had a special day for sure! Loved enjoying the celebration!

    I was also blessed by the verse that led you to becoming foster parents. That way when things get discouraging, like with all the endless paper work you have something to go back to. :)
