Their Shining Faces




Here are the two sweet four year old girls in our lives. The first picture is our granddaughter, Anne Marie. And the second is Ella, who we consider our "second granddaughter", because we have helped care for her almost since she was born. They both live just a few blocks away, and we love being with them. The girls love to decorate our kitchen window with these clings! We always have many kinds for every different season. You can take take them on and off and move them around endlessly. To me, the faces of these girls is the sun that illuminates the clings. They light up our house even on the darkest day. Speaking of clings, King David knew quite a bit about clinging.


"I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me." Psalm 63:6,8

Hi. There are the sweeties again. Love their dear smiles.

I don't think I've told you this Ginny, but I love your ever changing header. Each time I open you blog, I'm anticipating the day's photo to greet me.

What beautiful angels you have in your life Ginny! And it's wonderful how they live so close and can be there with you often. I love how you take one word 'cling' and apply it to the Word of God. The message is a real blessing. Thanks so much for sharing.
