My Grandaughters .

God never quits amazing us and blessings us ? I believe HE new exactlt what I needed to give me inspiration andmotivation in life ? He blessed me with 2 grandaughters which I love dearly that came to live with me on December 12th ! The decision came without choice but God knew what to do in their lives ! He knew I was the only choice between going to unknown Foster parents somewhere in Georgia or blessing me with them ?

    This is a picture Christmas morning which I wasn’t able to give them presents ? Thanks to my children and other grandparents and aunt and their stepdad  God showed His love and mercy by them coming forward and sharing with these girls ? Cole and Noah was able to exchange gifts with them ! The other set of grandparents are blessed with Cole and Noah with who will live with them ? I am so thankful that they and me was able to keep the children from being scattered around in the State of Georgia !

    You can tell in the picture they had a fun Christmas morning ? Brittani [left] Taylor on the right ! Again God has proved He’s in charge ?

 

    Blessings and Happy New Year to all !

    Evening Terry,

    I forgot to mention that its been 6 years since I even put up a Christmas tree or any lights around my porch ? Today we got in the kitchen and made some Pecan Brittle . Its better than peanut brittle ?

    They are a blessing to me and they are a lot of help and fair to middling about cleaning up after themselves ?

    Blessing and have a blessed Lords day !

    Hi Audrey,

    Thanks for the birthday wish ! One day when I get old I can look back who my dear friends are and can read about all the nice things they said to me ! These girls have been keeping me busy enjoying life way down here in Gods Country ?

    Hi Terry,

    I was hoping you would disagree with me so I’ll try again one of these days ?

    Me mind about the lengthy post ?? Ha–Ha—? I need all the lifting up but for the girls we are starting to be a team ? They have been here since Dec. 12th and the Lord has been blessing us everyday ! He knows just how to get my attention ? Between us and all my internet friends one of the appointed court advocates for the girls came by today and made me feel good when He said that He knew the girls were happy and that they were the happiest children in this kind of situation he had seen ?

    The girls got out of school on the 19th and don’t have to go back to school untill Jan. 5th !

    Blessings.

    Terry said,

    Dear Grandpaw …What you say about that case maker reminds me of my sister Gracey.
    As you know, she became a widow when she was about 24, and left with four wee children.
    She brought those four babies up with the help of the Lord.
    One time some snoopy neighbor put it upon herself to report Gracey to the Children’s Aide, accusing my precious godly sister of being an unfit mother.
    I happened to be there when the case worker came and when she did, she didn’t say a word at first. Instead her eyes roved all over the some what “untidy” living room.
    There was a finch singing in its cage with bird seed scattered on the floor under the cage, there were books lying around and also tons of them crammed into bookcases. GOOD books like Charles Dickens and Bible stories..not cheap novels and magazines.
    The piano was overflowing with music books and in the air was the smell of cookies baking in the kitchen oven.
    There was soft music coming from a tape recorder…Gracey ALWAYS has music on.
    Pictures of the family hung on the walls, none too straight mind you!
    Well that lady’s eyes finally rested on the sweet girl sitting beside her and she explained, “This house is just full with everything a child’s heart could possibly desire and it is filled with love!”
    That lady left with a smile on her face!
    I was so proud of my little sister that day and I still am!
    Three of those children went on to college and graduated and one of them, Amanda is a happy wife and mother of two children, Chase and baby Daniel.

    You are going to miss those girls when they go back to school amazing grace man!
    Love Terry

    rrbj said,

    Morning Terry,

    Yes I will miss them ! The DFCS lady couldn’t get my appointment to have drug screen and finger print me done as she was trying to make every thing totally legal before the first of Jan . [ normal procedure ] She did get me an appointment for Monday Jan. 5th at 8:30 am !

    All three of those that have visited have said good things about us ? When the first investigator came out she said nothing wrong but needs cleaning I imeadiately told her that I had taken care of my self for 8 and 1/2 years but I told her that I didn’t make a good woman was the reason it was dusty and needed some tender loving care ? Got to go and see about dinner ?

    Blessings

    Terry said,

    Hi Grandpaw!
    I am no prize pigeon when it comes to house work!
    One time Gramma and Grampa Yade were paying me a nice friendly visit and we were sitting in the front room., when all of a sudden, my big black cat, “Sir Galahad” shot out faster than a speeding bullet from underneath a chair. And his big fluffy tail was just full of dust bunnies!
    Gramma pretended she didn’t see. but I just don’t know how she couldn’t have!!
    Those dust bunnies must been a few years old!
    Oh the agony of it.!
    I was busted!! NOT a good house keeper at all!
    That is why whenever that Berne gets a few spare vacation days, I set the lad right to work!

    Thinking about you and the two girls……Felisol calls you “the trio” and she is praying for you too..Love Terry

    PS I should call you “the quartet” because we can’t leave that Princess out, eh amazing grace man?

    Hi Terry,

    Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes from you and the pals in 2008 ! I have been very cautious today and I hope the old Devil don’t catch up to me before 12 oclock so I can enter 2009 in a good mood with no serious ailments besides the usual ones ? I don’t ever leave my princess out ? The girls are doing great and waiting on new years dinner with dried blackeye peas and onions sliced and soaked in vinegar over night and rice and mustard greens with plenty of smoked jowls for seasoning ? Also the dinner ain’t complete without sliced fried smoke jowls ?

    YEE–HAW ? Me and uncle bubba joe has waited all year for this bodacious dinner ? We’ll top it off with an upside down blueberry pie with a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream ? >> Then a 2 hour nap ? What more can a man ask for besides sharing all this love with my two grand daughters ?

    Blessings and Happy New Year to you and Bernie !

    Dear amazing grace man…..just stepping by to say howdy to the trio and Princess.
    I guess with those girls gone all day that the house must be empty.
    Just a Grandpaw Ron and a Princess floating about eating oranges and granny green apples!
    Bernie is on the evening shift.
    That doesn’t mean that he can have quiet mornings off either
    Before he left for work today, he had the laundry all done and when he gets home he had better fold it all up and put it away or no burnt muffins and coffee for him!
    Well he will be home soon so I had better get the broom ready in case he trys to get away with folding that laundry!!!!!!!!!
    God bless you my friend..Love Terry

    I will be praying for your friend, Brother Gorden. It is a pretty bad thing when the legs are sore. Poor guy.

    Hi Terry,

    The way I get the girls to work with me is tell them I want cook nothing ? [ just kidding ] It works every time ! Yea it seems a little like something is missing after having 17 days with them before going back to school ! I always rise up in the morning between 5 and 6 AM and they told me the first couple of morning that could’nt you just sleep another couple of hours ?I explained that the early bird always gets the worm not to waste one minute of the day ? Teusday evening it had been about 35 years since I had done homework and I had to help Taylor with her math ?She brought me a pencil and paper to work on and she could not figure out how I did the problems in my head ? It was multication such as 20 times 80 = 1600 ?

    Blessings.

    Dear amazing grace man..we are praying for you continually…The Lord will surely help you. His timing is perfect. What is this had happened when you had those sore fingers?. It would have been really hard for you to have taken those girls!
    Can you please pray for Felisol Grandpaw?
    She is really sick…Thanks..Love Terry

  39. 39

    rrbj said,

    Hi Terry,

    I can’t say for sure what might have happened when I had my trouble with my fingers but I will say that there would have been some serious grunting and moaning and praying going on ? I might have even said they didn’t hurt anymore ?

    I will remember Felisol in my Prayers !

    Blessings and have a blessed weekend .

    Hi Grandpa Ron….Mom behaved herself quite well at the doc’s today so I took her out for breakfast.
    Afterwards when I was helping her into the car, she almost slipped on the ice and a guy from the restaurant came to help her because other wise we both would have fallen.
    I told her she had better stay home tonight from prayer meeting. It is way too slippery!
    Hope everything is going well with you and the kids..

I know 55% is warm to ya’ll but down here ole Authur and his kinfolks have a field day with temps like we are having ? Mid 20’s at night and mid 50’s daytime?

    I signed report cards this past weekend and the girls were a little shy all the A’S they usually have. Its because of all the adjustments the last 9 weeks ? They told me they would do better this next 9 weeks just please don’t cut out our evening snacks ? No more DQ dilly bars and Pecan brittle candy ?

    Grandpaw Ron… I would say more but Bernie and I are almost out the door.
    We have to go and do the laundry….Frozen pipes!!
    I told that Bernie I will go along for the ride and as I mentioned to you this morning, I am taking my broom along to keep him in line
    And plus the 20 dollars i give him for allowance each week[from his own paycheck], well it is going to dwindle some what!!
    He will have to pay to get those clothes washed!
    I will let him dry them for free at home and he can fold them and put them away for free too after he has rubbed my feet and made me coffee!
    Have a great weekend with the kids and go easy on the peach switches, eh?…Love Terry…….Brrr…………….

    I will do what the doc tells me to do for sure.
    I don’t want him taking another twelve tubes of blood out of me!
    I have to get back to reading the blogs and leaving comments. I have been very lax the last week or two.
    Bernie and the Shop are sawing logs. It is almost two
    Bernie has demanded that I make him pancakes tomorrow so I will have to look up the recipe on Google…Ha! Those things might make the guy sick and he will miss a day of work so maybe I had better just wait until Saturday to serve him pancakes!!!
    Well take care , you and the girls and Princess.

    Morning Terry,

    The emails are being delivered to my inbox ! Thanks. I made me and the girls pancakes and sausage for supper wednesday night ?

    Grandpaw Ron I am getting tired of watching soap operas every Saturday night! Now I never go to the theatre, but I may as well be! That Bernie forces me to come every week with him to the Laundromat and for a whole hour we have to watch soapy clothes spinning around in a washing machine and wet clothes dancing circles in the cloths dryer!
    To the tune of his Ipod and to the tune of four bucks!
    Oh woe is me!……….Love Terry

    Dear Granpaw Ron,
    I just had to pop over and see how you were.
    I should had known that no news were good news.
    So glad about you providing a home for your grandchildren.
    Have been praying for your health and your grandchildren, and now i see Terry has made you pray for me too.
    thank you so much.
    A righteous man’s prayers have mighty power.
    Glad you care about Terry too.
    She is always worrying about others and suffering in silence herself.
    I pray the Lord will make great wonders for my Canadian friend.
    And for you and you house.

    Hi Felisol,

    Thanks for the kind words ! Bernie and Terry have grown close in my heart as well as the rest of my blogworld friends ? Most of the time I just read the posts but don’t comment much but I admire the faithfulness of all the pals and their prayers ! I almost can’t believe how good the last couple of months and all of Gods Blessings but I have learned Patience and that Praising God and talking to Him every day He will pour out blessings on you !

    Hi Grandpaw…I am just here as comfortable as can be on the couch with my lap top.
    I am so glad for your prayers.
    What really scares me is not really the pace maker but I am so afraid that I would have to face what Betty did. After seeing all that she went through, I just would not know how I could stand it!
    I am a coward, I know.
    I haven’t yet heard when my appointment will be….
    I hope the girls and Cole and Noah are doing all right and that all those interviews that you are having will all turn out for the best….Love Terry

    Terry said,

    Dear Grandpaw ..I don’t know if I am imagining it or not but I seem to be feeling a little bit better.
    I took two Vitamin B pills today because the doctor says I am low on it.
    I haven’t heard from the heart doctor yet but that is OK. No News is good news, eh Grandpaw.
    It is getting late so I better go to bed.
    The pipes unthawed so Bernie is doing the laundry at home again.
    I wonder what he is going to do with all that extra money he has!
    Good night dear Grandpaw, Princess and your two little girls…Love Terry

    rrbj said,

    Morning Terry,

    There is no need to worry , just tell yourself if Betty can do it I can too and build your confidence with your faith !

    The pills are ok – but try one of them shots with that 2 inch needle ? I had to take them once a week several years ago ? I’m glad your pipes have unthawed ? It was bad enough to go out in the cold but to wash clothes ? Somebody would have had to smell how good I stunk ?

    Blessings
