My Grandmother taught me to look to God for the answers to everything. These posts are things she taught me and things that I have learned on my own...
For my Grandchildren, Karina, Gavin, Ethan and Cory. I love you very much

Catching Rainbows

Here is a Rainbow on my ceiling. Watch the sky after a rain and see if you can find a rainbow. Take a picture if you can.

God sent His son Jesus and He became sin for us and died in our place so we could experience eternal life.

Johann Sebastian Bach

Learn to appreciate good music. For Bach writing music was an expression of faith. Every composition was "in the name of Jesus" and "to the glory of God alone."
Here are some selections from MusOpen

Air on the G String
Chorale Prelude, Wir Glauben all an einen Gott (We all believe in One True God), BWV 437
Air from Orchestral Suite no. 3 (Siloti)
Minuetto 1 from Anna Magdalena Notebook

Of course there is always room for "Go Fish" !

Long Distance Grandparenting

After having my granddaughter Karina living either near me or with me for almost a year, it was very hard when they moved 12 hours away. We had become close and children do not understand distance or time. Skype offered a solution to the separation issues we are both feeling. I noticed that when I talked to Karina on the phone she only talked for maybe 30 seconds, but when my son let her sit in front of the computer and we talked through Skype where she could see me, she would talk with me for almost an hour. We are able to see each other and I can show here things I'm doing and she can show me her pictures, toys and such. Skype has been a wonderful tool. It's free to call any other Skype customer. Give it a try. The distance and time issue are less of an issue. Of course there is nothing like being there with your grandchildren, but when you can't....
