the heat is still on!
God is still on His throne!
Now as grandparents, we do things with them that we did with our girls. Sort of.
For instance. I used to make the girls a tent in their rooms, or in the living room and dining room by using sheets and light blankets draped on the furniture. This was rainy day fun for them. When the boys come over, it is more fun for them to pitch an actual tent in the living room. Which we do. As you can see in the video.
When our girls were young, there was a time, maybe even twice that we had “no TV” for over a month. A choice made when it broke and we had no money to fix it! However, the month of July, has been sort of an unofficial “no TV” month at our house. It’s not broken, no one has been grounded…but we needed some silence from the chaos of the world. I have no clue what has been happening other than what I have been told. I have survived. I have still been able to eat, sleep and dress myself without the TV! Believe it or not! So has Jeff!
We have read, worked on a puzzle (a big one, not the one Zackary is putting together in the video) –I have done some cleaning—and enjoyed time without the influence of the world.
Before you watch the video—and you start thinking I am off my rocker, you need to know a little bit about the two miracles in the picture.
The first little fellow was a 2 lb. 7 oz. miracle born 2 1/2 months early. A little anxious to get here, he wasted no time. He has been diagnosed with a congenital heart defect, along with other health issues. He is a live wire miracle!
The one in the tent is reading to us. This brought tears to my eyes. He is 7 1/2 and just started TALKING when he was just over 5. He was diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder and Grandbuddy began to pray earnestly for him to be able to talk just over 2 years ago. The week he began to fast and pray for Rylan we saw major improvement. By the end of the first 2 weeks, Rylan had said his first sentence. It was short…but it was a sentence!
So as you listen to his slow, but steady words, keep in mind the miracle that has taken place before our very eyes. He has just graduated from Kindergarten and will be going on to take on 1st grade! Each step with him as been another growth of faith in our lives.
I am thankful over and over when I peer into the eyes of these little ones. All of them!
On another note, I would like your prayers.
On August 15, 2009—I will be here. Barbara from the Ivy Path e-mailed me to be in prayer about speaking for them at a retreat. I began to pray. The LORD began to work in my heart and my mind a direction even before she told me what they wanted. The direction from Him and her request were the same. So, if you would please jot my name on your prayer list that God would use me as He sees fit —I would greatly appreciate it! AND if you can join us in Lake City, Florida—-that would be awesome!
For now, join us over at my friend, Lynn’s place—and let’s all be THANKFUL!

They are adorable! God is good indeed! Reading this post brings back all the happy memories of my childhood too!
Will be praying for you! God bless!
Praise God for His precious blessings upon dear Rylan. I will be praying for your upcoming retreat sweetie. God will pour His Words into you. I love you.
You know, people think that God is no longer in the 'business' of miracles, but He is…I think it is awesome that Rylan was praying over 🙂 and God answered your prayers…
I know that God will use you in a mighty way on August 15th…Trust in Him and His strength…
Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week…
Be blessed today and always…
I have never known a child that didn't like to play 'tent'. Did that with mine… now doing it with my grandkids!!
So much fun… especially on a rainy day!!
You are blessed… Grandma!
The tears are rolling. He is doing so well to have only been talking such a short time! Look at him! God is on His throne, indeed. And what a smart boy wtih the puzzles! I know you are proud of him. What cute boys.
Thanks for your comment. Such an encouragement.
Oh Angie! That is so beautiful and such a testimony of God's sweet mercy and grace. And I can tell how much your heart has been blessed! Thank you Jesus!
Oh, Angie… what precious miracles those two little boys are! Praise the Lord for all He has done in their lives.
It's been way too long since I stopped by for a visit. I've been consciously making an effort to not spend as much time on the computer lately, but that also means I miss visiting my dear blogging friends. Soon I will be back and I look forward to spending more time here catching up!
Happy Thankful Thursday!
God is good.
How sweet they are .Precious souls to mold .Some day, if the Lord tarries they will be a product of your influence as well.
I know you will be guided by the Lord in your speaking and be a blessing to those who get to hear you.
God is faithful to use a willing vessel.
