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: Another Birthday Celebration?

No, three of them actually...but all rolled into one!

I always do the math for you: 3 generations, birthdays within 11 days of one another, 163 years, 1 party. 

It's much simpler to celebrate together. Until it is time to sing "Happy Birthday." Then it gets a little confusing...

♫ Happy birthday, dear MiriamMomGammyCherylMomGranKristinMama... 

Huh? Who?!

As Mom (Gammy) is turning 75 this year, we gathered 75 phrases to describe her! We kept adding all during the party, my sister texting in her thoughts as well, and we reached 75 by the time the party ended. They were definitely in random order..."loves the Lord" was #23 and it should have been #1. But we had lots of fun and lots of laughs as we compiled them, and we hope that Mom was pleased.


  1. Kati and Bekah must have been in charge! Three very special women celebrating birthdays is pretty cool and if I weren't so lousy at math, I could figure out the years. LOL!

  2. What a fun thing to do to gather those 75 things together! Looks like a wonderful celebration. Like the build your own sundaes!

  3. Happy Birthday to all.....Cupcakes look wonderful as does the ice cream. Hope you had fun.

  4. Almost every time I click over to your blog I know that I am going to see food that I want to dive face first into. :-D Those cupcakes look delicious!
