we pray for their peace and their healing.
We got to witness our oldest grandchild receive her First Communion yesterday. The church was packed to Standing Room Only as family and friends gathered for the celebration. Hearing that little girl, now young lady say she came on her own free will just made our hearts sing. You couldn't force her to do something she didn't want to if you tried. She knows right from wrong.
We got to see almost all of our grandkids this weekend. Baby Deirdre is the quietest little newborn you can imagine. Liam tickled us though, he said "Now if it were just Deirdre and me, life would be so much simpler. That Caoilin and Finn, they are always into trouble!" He grows so many ways every time we see him. I think he will be a better big brother than I was.
Baby Katherine will be baptized in two weeks. That will be a very special day for all of us. She is one of those babies who could compete with the famous Gerber babies for cute and adorable. LuAnn has each grandchild's picture hung up the stairway to the top floor so we get to see them every morning and every night. Every one of them fit that category to us. We have a handsome set of grandchildren!
We have so enjoyed the weather this month! It has been pretty much gorgeous in southwest Ohio. I hope to keep replenishing my firewood supply as winter draws near.
Farmers who are still shelling corn are very lucky compared to last year. This fall is more like 2010 which seemed to go on forever. However, this gives the tiller guys too much time to tear up ground while the rest of us work on fencerows, lime and tile issues. I imagine everything that is going to be planted this fall has been planted.
Some things to ponder this winter:
Soil Health and Civilization
Modern Day Challenges
Solvita Soil Health Test
Rick Haney's Work With Soil Health
This should be enough good work to keep the blessings flowing!
Have a great week,
