On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Keepin' Records

I'm getting slow in my old age! We are now well into February and
I'm having a little trouble trying to remember the events from January
while February rolls on!
It really isn't funny how time slips away!!!

Christmas celebration with my siblings in Tulsa was delayed until we could all get together.
(all being: my brother Phil and his wife, Susan,
my sister Roberta and her husband, Don
Roberta's daughters, Robyn and Jacqueline).
My brother kept his Christmas tree up until the end of January
and Susan cooked another fabulous meal for us!

Phil and Susan recently visited South Korea.
The big fad there is something called a "selfie stick."

 We took this pic using it and thought we had a good group shot,
however, Robyn didn't lean in quite close enough.

That gives me the chance to put a pic of her in here

and congratulate her on her recent accomplishment!

We missed having my brother's sons and families
with us in our Christmas celebration.
Chase and Julie
Our nephew Billy with his precious daughter, Hunter.

She has been in the hospital for most of her brief life ...
The writing on her hospital gown is in Korean!
We are all rejoicing that she is now well and back home!!!
So thankful!

Other news!

Kate got her hair cut!!! 

Daughter-in-law Amy celebrated a milestone birthday!

Jack got a tractor from his cousins, Brady and Noah.

Super Heroes below stayed busy while we watched the Super Bowl.

Noah kept me company while his brother Brady played soccer.

The weather this week has been wonderful!
Trudy and I attempted a walk, but she only managed to make it three doors down from our house before her tongue was hanging out. At least she enjoyed some new smells on the way.

Kate wanted to take a pic of me, so I smiled as she said,
"My pretty Nonnie!"

As if that wasn't sweet enough, Kate then told me,
"Being 100% pretty on the outside is not as important 
as being 5% pretty on the inside?

I told her if she meant that being pretty on the outside was not as
important as being pretty on the inside, then yes, she was right.
"Kate, you are so smart. 
Did your Mama teach you that?"
"No, Nonnie. You did.

Kids remember everything. Better be careful what is said.
I am mystified as to where she came up with those numbers!


  1. Such a sweet post, Nonnie and you are a blessed Grandmother, indeed.

  2. Oh this was so sweet....I loved all your pictures and story with them. What a special grandma you are, and so loved.

  3. It is amazing and a bit scary how quickly time goes by! It's nice to blog to help us remember those great times, like your family Christmas get together!! Love your little Grandgirls wise words! Blessings, Cindy
