Oh those sweet times with the grandchildren! Such wonderful memories and thankfully so recent. I am looking forward to our next visit.
Do you remember the wonder we looked at the world with as children? I do. Our grandchildren are living in that world now! Just like going to Grandma's house was like visiting heaven (or so I thought when I was a child), getting lovingly greeted by her. The way she would sit beside me and hold my hand. The way she melted cinnamon hearts in her homemade applesauce. The partially empty Avon bottles of perfume my Aunt would save for my cousin and I. And how the adults took care of everything!
Yesterday after church ....I came home and made this red sheet cake and it is SO delicious. I don't often bake, but this recipe was everything claimed and more! I was seriously addicted to the icing, believe me...=). I even licked the mixer beaters and I haven't done that in years!!!
Yesterday in Sunday School, our lesson was about Moses. How his Mother trusted God and went ahead with her brave plan to leave her baby floating in a basket on the river. How wonderful to see how God worked in the princess, who had compassion on the baby and so this true story goes on. God takes care of each of us and cares for us no less than he did for Moses. To be in the place of God's blessing we must exercise...Trust and obedience. Oh, the richness of His love!
And with a lasting thought of our Saviour;
"I know not where his islands lift
their fronded palms in air,
I only know I can not drift
Beyond his love and care." Whittier.
