And The Beat Goes On!

Wow! I just uploaded these pictures to my computer and this picture just blows me away. Would you just look at those awsome faces!

Lately, I have been feeling my mortality more than ever before. Guess for me it was about turning 55 or just getting older, I don't know. Some days I am overwhelmed with getting in as much living as I possibly can. I'm acutely aware of the passage of time. Not a moment to waste I tell you!

As I think along that line and look at this picture I am struck by the thought that someday my heartbeat will cease.......and there is great comfort in knowing that my heart will beat on in these children. Look at them. Six heart beats and six lives. All will take a different path in life. All will touch other lives. And all without a doubt will march to the beat of a different drummer. My prayer for them is that each will love Jesus and allow him to be the orchestrator, conductor, if you will, of their lives.

It saddens me that folks don't treasure their families and their children. Are they not aware that our children are our future? A heritage from the Lord? Our lives go on in them? How sad many parents and grandparents can just disown their children. I can't imagine my heavenly Father disowning me and their is no way I could ever disown one of my children or grandchildren.

So my little kiddos I'm thankful that when my night arrives and my life beat stops remember march on, play it loud and play it strong.........the beat goes on.

Blessing of peace & all that is good,

Thanks so much for the blogs.. I think they are cool. Can I get a notice when the page is updated? That would be cool. I guess we all look at things differently at different points in our lives becuase when I see the pictures, I feel tired. Children are a blessing, and they are exhausting at the same time. I can't wait until I am a Memaw and have time to blog. Not gonna wish my life away though, but I've been so busy lately that I just want to lay down "in my soul." It seems there is not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that I need to. But, I am thankful that I have that problem because I wouldn't want to be viewing the world from a hospital bed, watching the cars go by and seeing everyone trying rush around to get things done.
Have a blessed day, Jen
