Trunk for a treat....

Tonight I crocheted an elephant for a young lady that I work with...she is due in late October or early November. She is decorating with elephants...

I thought this would be a quick and simple project. It was not...6 hours later, I am finally finished.
Whew!

Becoming Unplugged...

In less than 13 hours...my family will become more unplugged.

I cancelled our satellite subscription. My husband's first response was had I already called the cable company. The answer is, "No!"  And, I am not really sure I am in a hurry to do so.

We will still have the internet obviously, as I work mainly online by teaching courses online and consulting online. But...no television. I am not sure this will bother me so much. My child thinks it will. We will soon see.

I am thinking of game nights with my family again. We have not had one of those in about two years now. I am thinking of family movie nights. I am thinking of not having nonsense noise on in the background nonstop.

I am kind of excited to have no television. Does that sound weird? I am thinking of not watching bad news. I am thinking of not hearing advertisements of junk we do not need. I am thinking of thinking. I am thinking about reading. I am thinking about quiet. And, this makes me excited.

We will see...less than 13 hours and counting...  :)

Children on loan...

I have always believed that my children belonged to the Lord and that they were on loan to me from Him. They were lent to me for a time to raise and live in glory and honor of Him.

Much the same are our grandchildren.

They do not belong to us. They belong to the Lord and are loan to our children, as their parents.

I think some people forget this.
