Sunrise, Sunset......

This is what I woke up to find in my foyer this morning.

I must admit at first I was a little startled.

(You can't see in the picture, but they are Harley boots.)

Then I realized that my 26 year old son, who lives 60 miles away, probably came home while I was sleeping last night and that these must be his.

But it seems like only yesterday when he wore those tiny, white leather Stride-rite shoes....Sunrise, Sunset........waaaaaa.


My wonderful QFIL over at Turning 70 is going to be traveling to Brazil on a voluntary missionary trip. He is leaving to start the journey today.

Please keep him in your prayers.

Very cool. Hey, thanks for the comment. You are so right. They cannot run away from God and they will be back.

I started thinking the other day about our children's names and how they sometimes show us part of God's plan for their lives...and perhaps the areas they need to be reminded of daily.

There is no running from the prayers of a righteous Mom!

I can relate to this post! While my children are still relatively young....I still feel like they should be infants! UGH!

There's no retirement in the Kingdom of God, just as Abraham and Sarah.

Nice boots, I was going to say to you, "Whoot whoot hot mama got a new pair of shoes!" That's bringing out the sassy chick...

Neat boots - it's always nice when they come home.

A mission's trip at 70 - wow that's great. I'll keep him in prayer.
