Lunch and a visit

Our oldest son, James, arrived from Washington state the other day. We had dinner last night along with my daughter and her family. Today, James and I had a date to go to the cemetery and then to lunch.

James told me that he felt at peace at the cemetery; that he knows his Dad is happy and still with us in spirit. It is peaceful at my Sweet Hubby's grave...how could it not be? He was such a loving man.

Over lunch, we had the best conversation. It was a mixture of memories and talk about the Lord! It just doesn't get any better than to hear your child talk about Jesus and how much he loves Him! Even if that "child" is 32!

Matthew will be home tomorrow...all three of my children here at the same time. Nice.

I'll leave you with the Scripture verse I gave James as I dropped him off at his sister's house:
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

I am so glad you had a beautiful day with your son and daughter. I too am blessed as a mother when I hear my kids talk about Jesus and what Jesus is revealing to them.

Dear Gigi,
I pray for you often. I think your children are indeed a joy for you. THe Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord shine His face upon you and give you peace. This is the oldest blessing and is recorded in Numbers 6.
Blessings,
Vicki
