Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Left the house at 12:30 p.m. to begin the trip to spend the week with our oldest daughter, who invited me to come up and stay before she has to go back to work in a couple of weeks!  She didn't have to ask me twice!  I will try to go anytime I am invited to spend some time with my kids!  :D  It's one of the perks of not working!  :D

The gas in Wytheville, VA is ALWAYS about $0.20 cheaper than our gas and today was no exception.....$1.99/gal.!  Since I had to stop for gas, I also got lunch at McDonalds. 

The trip was uneventful, praise the Lord!  Very foggy in the mountains and rainy in Virginia.  Rained some in WV, but eventually cleared up for a little while.  But, the temps were dropping quickly!  And the wind really picked up!  By the time I got to Nat's the temp had dropped about 15 degrees from where it was when I left the house.....55 degrees.

When I rang the door bell, it woke Nat and Adalina up.  It took her quite a while to wake up completely!

Adalina stretching in grandma's lap trying to wake up.
I was so glad that she came right to me when I reached for her!  Since we don't get to see her and her mommy and daddy very often, I figure the older she gets, the more hesitant she will become  to want to come right to me.  So I tried to get all the hugs she would give me while I was there today.  I stayed and visited for 2 hours.

Addy playing in the floor, still not completely awake.
Addy has got the prettiest hair!  It is so thick and has such a pretty wave!  She is just another very pretty grandchild the Lord has blessed us with!  :D

I didn't get to see Cheryl as she ended up having to work.  I left Nat and Addy about 6:30 and headed to Jessica's.  More rain and the temp. dropping quickly!  By the time I got to her house at about 9:10 it was 32 degrees and I had been in rain AND snow AND high winds!

The Lord blessed me with a safe trip!  Tomorrow, Jessica wants me to help her get started on her brand new, still in the box from a couple of years, sewing machine!  :D  We will take the boys to school and go to JoAnn's for some supplies.

Before I forget again, like I did last night, here is a page I did with just Tim and I and all the grand kids.
I chose the name of the kit, Blessings, as the theme for this page.  Designer, Lori Imel at Scrappy Bee.
