More precious than words

Visiting children and grandchildren always bring so much joy to our lives. Snatching a quiet moment, I settle in to write, but find the remembered visuals are more precious than any words. So rather than describe these special family times from the past few months, I’ll let you take a peek for yourself.


From the family album …

Now, what caption would you suggest for this last photo? What’s she thinking?

A granddaughter's "look"


“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”

[Ephesians 1:3]


“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.”

[Psalm 127:3, ESV]


“Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.”

[Proverbs 17:6, ESV]



P.S.   And for those of you wanting something on the topic of writing, I suggest you head on over to Rachelle Gardner’s blog and read Jillian Kent’s guest post, “Are you a [writing] craft junkie?” If you’re a writer you absolutely can’t miss this one. It’s funny and a little scary at the same time.

  1. Precious family, Carol. The one with the beautiful, brown, expressive eyes, that say so much – what might she be thinking? “Oh, yes, I love you, Grandma.”

    There’s a reason why they say a picture says a thousand words. Beautiful photos, Carol. The young are so precious and pure. Their skin alone is enchanting. Thanks for sharing the loves of your life.
