My Buddy and Me Series

Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

8 x 10 x 2 inches

This is my fourth in the MY BUDDY and ME series. Prompted by old photos of my grandson, this painting sort of evolved on its own! The sweet innocence of a little one in the sunlight is usually enough, but as this one eats his bite of apple, he has a buddy wanting a nibble too!

This is Terry (He is my hubby, the big one) playing Swords with Jonathan, the little one, our grandson.
More Sword Action play. Jonathan came to spend most of Saturday with us.

Jon had just opened his new sword. He has been waiting since Dec 26th to see it.

A game of chess as things quieted down. This was always part of life when Jon lived with us. He and Terry played chess every day.

Well, life continues here in our little 'Money pit". We are still cleaning up massive amts of dust and dirt, but the new heater works like a champ.

We were delighted with a long visit with our grandson yesterday. I think I mentioned once we all lived together for about three years. That was a highlight in our lives to be apart of his life daily. We spent hours learning to ride bicycles, how to swing on a swing, playing with Victoria, Ryan, Jacob and enjoying life in the country. Riding bikes around the circle where we lived and walking through town to the main playground next to city hall. These are memories to be treasured.

Yesterday he spend most of his time with his grandfather, who he calls BAMPA. They are pretty much a duo and do not need words to communicate. I love watching them together. Justin and Jan and I made dinner and enjoyed the time we had to visit while the two played together.

Our love surrounds our grandson even when we are separated from him. The Love of God surrounds all of us and keeps us with in his grace. May you share in the love of the Lord in your day today.


“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8: 35,37
