Sunday Thoughts

A good Sunday to you my friends. I found this prayer and it seemed quite fitting for me today. I pray for the safety of my grandchildren every day. I try not to worry too much, as I know I'm supposed to trust that God will watch over them. As a former elementary teacher and a mama too, I guess I just realize how kids can get hurt and it is always on my mind. I had two daughters, so having this little grandson has been quite a learning experience for me.

We got a text yesterday in the late afternoon. Little Otto fell from a swing at a park and they had to take him to the ER. He took a nasty fall on a rock, but thankfully, he didn't hit his head or his eye. Well, this grandma had a sick feeling in her tummy all night long. He checked out just fine and slept well all night. He will have a black eye.  Doesn't he look so sad? That's hard for Gama!

I am just so thankful that he is ok! I have been thanking God all day. I love that little guy so much and he is just precious to me. As my Jimmy said to me, he's a boy and this is going to happen. I know, I know....

I am so glad Little Otto is doing well, what a dreadful fright. I loved the poem, I am going to copy it and make a picture frame for it, thank you so much for sharing.

Oh, dear Lady Linda, I am so glad to hear precious little Otto is doing alright after his nasty fall... Aww, look at that dear darling face with the wee tears in the eyes... Praise Jesus that all is well and he didn't get seriously injured... Each day we lift our loved ones in prayer to the Father and trust that He knows... Such a comfort that we can rest in His loving arms, knowing that whatever happens, he has orchestrated everything for our ultimate good...
Blessings and hugs to you...may you have a wonderful week ahead! Today I am planting potatoes...busy days ahead this Spring! *smiles*

Aww... Look at that precious little Otto. :-)
Your Jimmy made me laugh. I grew up with all girls, one brother, many nieces, now many girls from those nieces, and then my two girls have all boys. Oh my oh my were the words from my mouth as I didn't know the first thing about boys!
But...they are something this Gamma has enjoyed tremendously. So different from girls, and yes, they are boys, rough and tough that's for sure.

I enjoyed that prayer. I must write it down and keep in my Bible.

Bless your heart, sweet Gama.
Much love~~ Debbie
