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

Catching Up

I am trying with difficulty to recollect what exactly has gone down the past couple of weeks, so I will just pick up with last Friday night when we had dinner with friends and attended our monthly concert. This one was really good with a group of three tenors - called Tenore! We aren't allowed to take pics of the performers, but here is a photo off their website Tenore! Although all the performance was excellent, I could have gone home quite satisfied having heard them sing I Dreamed a Dream from Le Miz and O Holy Night. Chills up and down even now as I remember them.



Some of the trees inside the church!

Jack with Mr. Pine Cone

Jack and Kate spent Saturday and Saturday night with us. He had fun taking decorations OFF my tree and making new things with them. He's always finding things around my house and wants to take them home with him. He put the toothpicks in the pine cone to make a little man and then wrapped it up for his hero cousin, Brady.

Kate read The Night Before Christmas to us.

We went to the movies to see Moana and have lunch, then came home to play, color, play jacks, jump rope, etc. After we had been home for a couple of hours, we had a little excitement in that Grandpa couldn't find his phone. We searched everywhere for it and it became quite the exasperation since calling his phone wouldn't help because he had put it on silent for the movies. It was pouring down rain and also time for everybody to be getting ready for bed, but I insisted we load everybody up in the car and go back to the theater to see if the phone might be there. Thanks be to the good Lord for watching over us one more time as the trip back off and the phone was still there!!! God blesses and protects us in so many ways.


Last Saturday, our son Jason (the tall one), left for a mission trip along with his pastor and three other men from their church. They will be up in the mountains in Honduras all this week hiking and going to different villages to offer help and the message of Jesus. They were only allowed the backpack with necessities, sleeping bag and I think one change of clothes. Any extra items were gifts to be given away, such as eyeglasses and medical supplies. Below are some of the pictures they have sent thus far. It's really neat that each day we can pinpoint where they are and they also are able to text and let us know they are doing well. What a blessing. And what a blessing they are. I am so proud!

Upon their return, I am looking forward to hearing all about how the Lord worked in each of their lives and the people they came into contact with on this trip!

  1. Nonnie, Your little grandson making things from ornaments touches my heart, then wanting to take things home. Reminds me of one of my granddaughters...she was always wanting some little something to cart home. I pray your son and his pastor and friend return safely. Such good young men doing God's work. Blessings to all, xoxo, Susie
