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 Snapshots: Chicken Butt!

Yep.  That's what I said...Chicken Butt! 

Today, the grandboys brought a book to share with their Papa. 

Kati had stayed overnight with them this week and helped out while their mama had dental surgery, so she happened to be there when Kristin first read the book to Owen (5) and Ben (3).  She reports that Owen laughed uproariously throughout the book--the uncontrollable  kind of laughter, the kind that comes from way down and leaves one barely able to breathe!  As soon as the book was over, he ran to get Gavin and Maddie to tell them to come and listen, and then he laughed almost as much the second time around!  

So today, Owen handed the book to Papa to read, and before the first page was turned, all of the children were gathered around him. 

Some silly jokes, generous use of the word "butt", and a Papa to enjoy it all with you...smiles all around!

And just for good measure, I must show you this little chubby-cheeked sweetie...


  1. You caught my attention with that title! hee hee

    That chubby cheeked sweetie is so cute!


  2. Cheryl, both photos need to be framed, they are priceless! Moments like this especially when captured through a lens will last a lifetime. Thanks or sharing.

  3. You need a soundtrack of that laughter, Cheryl, to play on days when your heart needs a lift ... or maybe the laughter is written so strongly on your heart that no soundtrack is needed. Sweet, sweet pictures ...

  4. Now that sounds like something my two could get giggly over. What precious faces all and what a sweet little face peeking through the chairback.
