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.

Sunday Snapshot

Only one Sunday Snapshot this week.  I didn't even have to make a decision, because I forgot to get my camera out until the dear family was getting ready to leave.  (Edit:  Why, oh why, did I not take any pics of the kids playing in the toilet box?  Grandmothers love that sort of thing, you know.)  Bummer.

I'm not sure how it started, but the new routine is for each grandchild to ride piggyback out to their van for the trip home.  Shortly before departure time, the children claim their "ride" for the evening. 

Tonight's teams :-)

After all are buckled into their seats, the children begin the countdown until the next time we'll see one another.  (Three days?  Five days?  Please don't say next Sunday!  That's soooooooooooooo long!)


  1. That is so sweet! I love traditions... even if they are painful!

    Blessings, Debbie

  2. That is cute! My grandkids live five miles from me and their daddy farms with us so we are blessed to see them often. Saturday my husband watched both of the grandkids while my daughter and I had a day out. He delivered seed, picked up a truck load of mulch, shopped at a greenhouse and took them to McDonalds. They had a wonderful time. We are so blessed!
