Sleepover and shopping with granddaughter and Psalms Friday
Tonight she is asleep in my bed as I write this. Her little sis is staying with Grandma Georgie. Little brother is having a sleepover with his twin 'cousins'. Big brother is at his dad's and stepmom's.
No, their parents aren't off on a trip. In fact, they were taking the three little boys to the Chinese Buffet and bowling. It was just a weekend when they found themselves with one child instead of four and decided to treat that 'middle' child who sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of dance, gymnastics, cheerleading, football practice, and so on of the older kids. The Irish lass is the 'baby' and gets the extra attention of that special spot in a family tree. I know: I was one and my brothers often noted how spoiled I was.
I picked Peyton up at 6 pm and we went out to dinner(her choice of course--it had to be some place with a salad bar). Then we settled here all comfy with popcorn and The Blind Side (she had seen it already, but wanted to see it again).
Tomorrow we head out for a shopping trip to Justice's -- a shopping haven for young girls. I also hope to find jeans that fit me at Penney's.
Meanwhile, here are some more excerpts from Psalms. Another work week is over and a great weekend has already begun.:-)
BLESS the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and render mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. . .
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. . .
For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
Psalms 103: 1 - 5, 8, 11, 12, and 22.
