As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Papa-and-Gran Days

Summer is a good time to have a Special Day when you (just you—no brothers or sisters) are invited to Papa and Gran’s house to do something that you love.

Maybe you love corn-on-the-cob and Papa says you can come and eat as much as you want...

...and swim in the kiddie pool...

...and relax in the hammock with Bekah.

Or maybe you want to do a project with Papa in his shop...

...and swing in the hammock with Bekah (no relaxing this time around!)...

...and shoot your rubber band gun (at a tree).

Or maybe you like to play games and you bring some of your own favorites and play some of Gran’s too...

...for hours...

...and then dine at the “Deery Queen.”

And then Papa and Gran can take you home so you can tell your family all about it.


  1. Love the pictures, great Grandparents!!

  2. That was all very precious, Cheryl. What blessed children, to have such loving and godly grandparents. --- Frances

  3. Thanks for your gracious comments...but we feel as if we are just learning to be grandparents! When our first grandbaby was born, our own baby was only 20 months old and we were so busy that we didn't have the time or energy to do those "extra" grandparent types of things. But now that our baby is eight, we are beginning to learn the ropes. :-)

  4. They had so, so much fun. They talk often of their "special days."

  5. Cheryl, what great pictures of fun! They are so sweet.
