The Family Video

Last night my husband pulled out some of our old family videos. Christmas time when our two older sons were teens, and when our now 23 year old was just an 11 year old! It was a lot of fun to watch them. We also watched the video of the day our youngest son was born and it was great to see all the excitement in the room of our older children and friends. Then we watched  the video of the trip to China when we went to get our youngest child and only daughter. We have a lot of memories on video, and even more memories in pictures, 88,000  pictures on our computer and adding more everyday. It's a family passion.
Yesterday I wrote about the Sunshine song,  my husband reminded me this morning how our son didn't want me to sing it to his little brother when he was born because it was "his" song. So, I had to come up with something new for our youngest son. Something special, his song was Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. There are a lot of fun family memories, precious times that we all enjoy looking back on and watching. We having fun laughing as we remember the times we've spent together and the love we share.
I feel blessed that God is adding to our family. Daughter in laws and grandchildren. As my husband and I get older, and I look back on my life I am seeing how fortunate I am to to be loved. God has showed me many times that He has given me relationships through my family and my friends to keep me and to love me, and I once again,  choose to praise Him. Even when I have a challenging day, or I question the way I may be currently feeling, I know in my heart that God has placed people in my life to LOVE me and to care for me and to keep me. He shows me His love this way, and teaches me how to bless others because of the way He has blessed me. I have 88,000 pictures to show me evidence of His love! And, that's just the frosting.
Monday's are often challenging days for me.  Friends pray for me on Mondays. I try not to schedule extra stuff on Mondays. Today, on this Monday, I felt like crying, so instead, I came home and distracted myself with pictures. I reminded myself of my family and the love we share. I prayed.
Say That Again, Jesus, Your memory of me is good and full of love. You look upon me with tenderness and kindness and you keep me captured in Your Hands. Thank you, Jesus, for blessing my life.
