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.

Snapshots From Our Visit (LOTS of Snapshots)

Yes, the visit with our faraway family is all that I've been talking about this week.  But I am a grandmother.  That's what grandmothers do.  So I have loaded this post with photos, and then I promise to move on...will not show you any more...will try to talk about something else.  (It's going to be hard!)  


Having Fun With Papa


Good Times


Playing With Kittens



Peter Turns Two!


With Grandmothers/Great-Grandmothers

Pajama Times


What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories.  
~ George Eliot



P.S.  I may show you a few pictures taken by my dear friend (and photographer) Frances, but I'll wait a few days.  ~ smile ~
