Today Is

Grandparents and grandchildren,
Together they create a chain of love
Linking the past,
With the future.
The chain may lengthen,
But it will never part.

Same here, it’s supposed to be nice all day. We have a big party this afternoon, a combo Birthday party for my two oldest sons, Elijah 21 and Jacob 19. About 50 people confirmed attending.

We set up a big tent and mega food. Will be a busy day at our house.

Meg, you've outdone yourself this morning. All of your posts are so nice, beautiful, and informative, I just want to give you one big "thank you" for all. I also looked at all the lovely 'grandparents day' poetry. How sweet they are! Glad to know you are feeling better to get all that done. We are giving my son a surprise birthday party today so I will be busy for the rest of the day. Hope all our FRiends have a beautiful Sunday.

I got this in my email today, and thought you all might enjoy it as much as I did, this beautiful Sunday morning. Turn your speakers on, and watch a wonderful performance, with only black lights and white gloves:

Coolest Video Ever!

WHO AM I

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours

I am Yours
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
‘Cause I am Yours
I am Yours

I was just looking at those pictures this morning! In Arizona, it's hard to even find a phone booth anymore. They used to be on every corner! Guess cell phones have taken over, eh?

... nor heavy rains and snows, nor sunstroke and heat exhaustion, nor blackouts and eclipses, nor work stoppages and slowdowns, nor big dogs and ferocious cats, not going postal and federal holidays--oh well, you see why the building inscription was never adopted as the U.S. Postal Service's motto.

LOL..It was never adopted indeed.
I found this on the motto:
Sometimes considered the motto of the United States Postal Service, even used to refer to the Pony Express rider... this is in fact a translation of a line written in the fifth century BCE by Herodotus, the Greek writer known as “the father of history.” His master work was On the Persian Wars composed between 500 and 479 BCE. In this famous passage, Herodotus praises the stamina and persistence of horsed messengers in the service of Xerxes, king of Persia.

This is the prettiest thing - framing is awesome! Meg, I wanted to tell you first what a blessing YOU are to Amy's Place, and then I need to go back and answer some pings from yesterday since I wasn't around.

You are one classy lady, and you bring such beauty with your posts. I am so glad that you're doing Sundays for us; and.... they.... are.... splendid! Thank you for not only agreeing to post the Sunday Welcomes, and making the holiday posts just as pretty and informative, but for making everyone who comes feel your warm hospitality.

You did a lot of those, Billie. I have the jeans one, two in gowns, the car one and can’t remember without looking in the file if there was another. Talent running over! YOU!

Awww, thank you (now, where's that blushing gif when I need it?)  :)

One more thing, I have the ornament you made. Five graphics in all.
