God's Love

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Psalms 127:3

Wouldn't you know it. This morning I woke with a sore throat. It's the first time I have been sick with this kind of thing in at least 6 months or maybe longer. For the last couple of years I have suffered and suffered with all kinds of upper respiratory woes so this year, around September, I went and took my very first flu shot ever. Now, I'm not saying that taking the flu shot has kept me from getting my usual upper respiratory sickness' but it's interesting that I have stayed free from sneezing, coughing, scratchy throat, runny nose, sinus and all that for so long this season.

After coffee, my throat feels much better so I think I'll just go the gargle with warm salt water route and lots of chicken soup. I decided to join a group that are sharing photos celebrating Sacred Life Sunday. I have so much to be thankful for. My photo for this first time is of my grandchildren of course. Each time I look at them I'm reminded of God's love and how much I am thankful they have parents who want to raise them walking inside the footprints of Jesus.

This photo was taken this past fall in my garden ramble. I don't think I'll let it overgrow like this again, but I really had no choice since I couldn't get out there and pull weeds, stake, and tidy up. Hopefully my leg and hip will be better when gardening kicks off for 2008 and I'll do better.

Phyllis, I hope your sore throat feels better. Your grandchildren are so adorable and by sharing this photo you are sure to have a truly blessed first day at your Sacred Life Sunday...and of course you can use my "Fruits of the Spirit" post-what's mine is yours. I'm happy you enjoyed it.
Have a wonderful day!
