Climbing Stairs

Sometimes life feels like climbing stairs...often taking two steps up and then stepping back one... trying hard to make it to the top.

What do we think we will find at the top?  What are we climbing for?

Is this what it will be like at the top of the stairs?  Looking down through windows of time seeing where we have been, catching glimpses of times past?

Perhaps we are so busy climbing we miss out on the things around us. We miss valuable moments to make new memories and share thoughts and love with our family and friends.

Currently we are on the road between home and Dallas.  Larry, our son-in-law, lost his mother Friday.  It was unexpected and she died blessedly in her sleep.  I have known her for several years now.  We have shared the joining of our middle children in marriage. We have buried our eldest grandson together and shared many meals and holidays since then. She brought gentleness and a sweet smile to all of us and she doted on our little grand-daughter Lady L. 

At this same time my mom decided to visit the hospital again. We thought 2008 that she had spent enough time there to last for ten years or more...but she has a digestive issue they are working on right now.  Please keep our family in prayer at this time and realize my blogs may not be as regular with so much going on.

Our climbing is slow...but we give thanks to God for every single moment in this day.  Lady L had a new song last night. We made up new words for her morning song.

Good evening Lord, This is your night
I am your child, tucked safe in your sight.


“By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.” Psalm 42:8 NIV
