Summer's Last Hurrah

Even though "fall" doesn't officially begin until September 22nd....summer is unofficially over after Labor Day. We had our boys with us for a while this weekend....and I want to share some of the pics we took outdoors, since the weather was beautiful!!!
As I took these pics off the camera and looked thru them....my heart just filled up with so much love.  I look at some of the pics that others post on their blog and I think about how cute they are....but they mean so much more to the one who posts them....just like these pics do to me.
But....it got me to thinking....that must be how our precious Lord feels when He looks down at us.  As much as I absolutely adore our  GRAND-sons....I have to correct them because of their little tempers, or things they do wrong....but when I look at them, that's not what I see....I see how perfect they are.  
Isn't that what God sees when He looks at me.....not Deb with all her faults and imperfections....but His child....whom He loves unconditionally?!?!?





Romans 12:10 (NLT)
Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.


Happy Labor Day, Sweet Readers!!!


In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  8. My problem is...I would mess up taking a picture of a concrete block...honestly. I do love viewing God's creation as captured through the camera of others and you have done that quite well.
    I came across your blog through another blog I follow and have signed up as a follower. When you’re free, please do visit me and let me know what you think of my blog and leave a comment. If you like, do follow as well. I am always open to great new people and interesting websites. Look forward to hearing from you.
    And yes I'm glad our Heavenly Father sees us through the blood of His precious Son as...Holy...blameless...and without fault. Colossians 1:22

  9. Deb, It's SO true what you said about us grandmothers and our grandchildren :) I think I know EXACTLY how you feel. After ours left last night, Gary and I just sat and reviewed the precious things they said and did...(we were too tired to do anything else)!

    And, OH how true about our status is our Heavenly Father's eyes! I "rest me" in that thought today.
