Sibling Fun - Teaching What Is Good

My daughter and her husband came to visit us this week-end. Oh it was such a joy-filled time! The week-end was filled with games and laughter and fun foods. I never cease to be delighted in how well our children get along together. They were close friends as children and are great friends as teens and adults. Not that we haven’t had our seasons of fractious relationships. Some children were on the bossy side and others a bit cantankerous during stages of their lives. But our get togethers are always such fun.

Sibling Fun - Games

We play online games (this week-end it was Family Feud on Facebook), board games (we played Once Upon a Time) and card games (Mao is one of their favorites). We make up stories, we play songs and sing, we take quizzes. There are no end to the ways we find to entertain ourselves. Again, I am so thankful to the Lord for the delightful children He has given to me and for the wonderful times our family has together.

What are some of the special things you do when your family gets together? Favorite games? Favorite foods and past times?

Well, technically summer ends in late September, but this is for us before we start school.

Thursday worship

sunrise worship at the river

My worship time this morning at the river was quiet and still. No big spiritual high or huge revelations. Just a time of quiet with the Lord and meditating on the bigness of God and on the blood that purchased my salvation. The passages I focused on were Ps 107 and Ps 104. I pray . . . →Read More:

Why are they called wisdom teeth?

who said wisdom teeth were wise?

My youngest daughter needs to have her wisdom teeth out. Why in the world are they called wisdom teeth? They almost always have to come out. They seldom come in straight or uncomplicatedly. If they aren’t removed, they’ll often cause complications later on as it is so hard to floss around or brush them well . . . →Read More:
