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

Life's a Holiday

Gee, I was all set for Blue Monday today and discovered that it is no longer! I did find out today is:

National Pie Day!
To celebrate, I have a cherry pie in the oven. 

But getting back to Blue Monday, I'm going to go ahead and post my blues anyway because I was just informed that Blue Monday is, for the time being, hosted by Magical Mystical Teacher.

Isn't this a peaceful and pretty scene?

Last Monday was blue for the Cowboys!
So sad that they did so well and then lost at the end.
Maybe next year.

I had some pretty blue sunrises from last week.

Not too much else around here. It was fairly quiet over the weekend. We watched all the Inaugural ceremonies and then went to a movie. We don't attend many movies, but I had read about Lion on the Pluggedin.com movie review site. The movie was wonderful and based upon a true story. It was beautiful, moving, but very sad to see how children in other countries suffer so.

We are off to the doctor's office today to see what our next step will be with my DH. Praying for wisdom in making decisions and moving forward. Jesus said if you have faith as a mustard seed, you could move mountains. I believe not only that Jesus can, but He will make all things work together for good in every situation we face because we love and trust Him.

This is from last week, which I never managed to get posted.

Kate stuffed herself into her bag to show me how she
packs her bag to come stay with us.
School was out for the MLK holiday!

Jack loves it when he beats me at Air Hockey.
Big smile there!

Just more celebrating.

After breakfast and playing around the house, I decided to take them shopping for a toy or whatever they wanted to choose. Price limit $25. When I said that, Kate's eyes popped out and she said, "You're spoiling us, Nonnie. Mommy only lets us spent $2! So they were thrilled and both of them bought Legos. That kept them occupied for a while.

When Jack heard me say I was going to take a pic of Kate,
he ran over to get in the pic.

Kate photobombed this one.

And then! The sun finally came out so we made a trip to the park and they could ride the razors they got for Christmas.

This last pic is Brady on the Ninja rope, one of our gifts to him for Christmas. Both he and his brother love a challenge and this may look easy, but it isn't.

Love all the pictures of the kids. They sure love their Nonnie. You can see it in their faces. You also got some beautiful Blue Monday photos. I read a while back that they quit doing that. Maybe someone else will pick that party up. Hope you have a good week- xo Diana

Debbie said...

Dianna said...

National Pie Day...and I missed it? I knew I should have made something other than the little Scottish Oat Cakes I made today!

Your grandchildren are gorgeous! I know they must love to come to Nonnie's house!


Mary Hutchins said...

I didn't know it was National Pie Day!! I bought the fixins for a mincemeat pie today and hope to bake it tomorrow! My children loved legos, it would keep them busy for hours! Enjoyed all your 'blue' pictures!

Elizabeth Day said...

What a great weekend you and your little ones must have had. Doesn't it just thrill your heart to know they love coming over? And who wouldn't? You provide all the attention and fun a child could want.

Don't know what is going on with your DH, but God is our faithful healer and sustainer. Praying you get some answers.

Yes, we were so sorry to see the Cowboys lose that game. But what a great come-back season they have had with our local boy, Dak.

Love all your photo's. Kate is so cute, stuffed in her bag!

Oh my goodness, what fun you had with those kiddos! I had to chuckle at the "spoiling" comment. Our Lauren was 5 years old when I told her to pick out a puka shell necklace she was looking at in a beach shop. She looked up at me and said "Let the spoiling begin!" We still kid her about it and she is 26 now! Praying for good news at the doctor visit.

Jill said...

No pie for me until this Whole 30 is over, lol. Love all the pictures!


Susie said...

Nonnie, That pie looks so good. I love the way Jack celebrates. :):)Love seeing the kids smiling faces. Doesn't that do your heart good. Hope your hubby is feeling much better. Blessings to all, xoxo, Susie
p.s. cherry pie is one of my SIL favorites.

I didn't know about the pie day yesterday...that sure looks good! I love cherry pie, but my hubby doesn't so I don't bake them very often (rarely). Love all your pics...beautiful skies...and the water pic, that was so refreshing. You are so blessed to have your grandchildren nearby and to get to enjoy them so often. They are truly blessed to have you in their lives! Praying for you and DH as you work through the health issues. May God give wisdom and grace. Have a blessed week!!

Such precious grand kiddos. I'm pretty sure spoiling is part of the job description for being a grandmother! Gorgeous blue pics.
