That name, lass, spread from Ireland to the states and other English speaking nations as it was pronounced as Colleen and peaked here in the 60's. I never knew many females named Colleen in my life but I had one in Ag Class in the 80's and she was a fireball! She was bright and cheerful and wasn't suited well for a room full of farm boys according to her teacher!
I give thanks for another healthy grand child today and wish her God's blessing on her every day of her life. I know her sister is over joyed with her and her big brother will be "OK" with it. What a beautiful family!
Our pastor asked this weekend if we are good stewards of our blessings as gratitude's. I had never heard it said that way but its a very good question. Do we take good care of our blessings? I know I try, I know I try hard but its easy to take our blessings for granted. I don't take them for granted today, I give thanks.
Giving thanks should reflect in my person every day I am alive and should pass down through the family to the last little child and beyond. I tested my corn at a local elevator today and explained my blessings. They were talking about chickens and said I have a whole flock!
I am more and more amazed God trusted me with all of this. It's a big responsibility but He never gives us more than we can handle. We are to help each other handle it and that's what I try and intend to do.
That's not Colleen in the picture but I am sure to have one soon.
Thank you Lord for your blessings and thank you Lord especially for Colleen today!
