Petting Farm in historical Heritage Park...in the city where I live.
Here I am, finally getting around to posting something! It might be mostly photo's but it shows the things, that this old Grammy finds most important...my family. This is where I spent Thursday morning with Xavies pre-school class. They loved getting up close and personal with the animals...although as we approached the barn Xavie quips "I'm not going in there Grammy!" Good thing he was easily persuaded, although if he would've seen a bug he would've screamed like a girl. Woo, that's another story in itself though.
This is Xavier petting a couple of cute little piglets and the end of our tour.
Yes, Softball and Baseball Season has arrived. Saturday morning was opening day. Here we are at Maddy and Ian's Parade. That is Ian in the center holding the Banner. It was cool and rainy but we were there! Of course, I had my favorite, Tim Horton's Coffee and a proud heart to keep me warm.
Our Miss Em is the gal wearing glasses.
Next, on the morning's agenda was Emilee's parade. So, off we went to another part of town, since she plays in a different League. This is her first year and she is very excited about it. Being a girly, girl she was thrilled to hear that her team is the "Angels" saying, Ooh, that's pretty. Now, we head back for Ian's game...which they won! Woo Hoo!
Last but not least...Maddy's game! Couldn't miss her first time pitching and Yippee...they won too! Saturday, we spent a total of 9 hours at the ball fields. Came home tired but Oh, so happy. We, are making memories, leaving hand prints on their hearts and minds! Long after we are gone...I pray they remember a Grammy and Papa who loved them enough.

Here, we sit this Saturday morning on Interstate 65, in Southwestern Kentucky. It looks like a parking lot and we haven't moved an inch in over an hour!
People, are now gathering outside their cars. Nearby, children are playing hopscotch on the highway, to pass the time. According to a nearby trucker, there has been a car accident just around the bend. Ahead of us lies the unknown. Has someone lost a loved one? Is someone suffering? Rescue vehicles have just passed by...Oh, Lord I will not complain. I will pray.
As I look around, I see, Red Buds in bloom. Butterflies, flutter past, as we wait on this beautiful sunny day. My camera always with me, we take photo's of the scenes around us. People are good, kind and friendly. Strangers...but today we become neighbors, with much in common. Some of us, eager to be home. Yet, none complaining...we will get there, much later than expected. But, we will get there.
Blessed to be alive and whole, our families waiting. Thankful, that God placed us on this road...because I see Jesus here.
I wrote this as we waited and after about 2 hours, we were on our way. This Cherry tree in full bloom welcomed us home...along with hugs from the Grandbabies and Pizza from Kell.

This beautiful Spring weather has us all planning and dreaming of Summer gardens. But, this morning, my mind goes back to another Garden. The Garden of Gethsemane. Where, my Saviour agonized and prayed to His Father that "if possible, this cup would pass from Him. And not His will but the Fathers would be done." (Matthew 26: 38-40)
Even those closest to Him, could not tarry one hour, but fell asleep. His betrayal complete. He, was led from that Garden to be mocked, beaten and Crucified. All of which he did willingly for ME. Oh, the beauty of that Garden...
As I watch our gardens come to life, my hands dirty from planting. I will, glory in the miracle of New Life that only He offers...I am washed clean, my hands no longer dirty! My Saviour makes all things new! Do you know Him?
May your Easter be blessed...Jesus is Alive.
Love to All
