FReeper Canteen ~ It's A Baby Shower ~ 09 January 07
The Canteen Crew | Serving The Best Troops In The World

Posted on 01/08/2007 5:59:26 PM PST by Kathy in Alaska


 

 
Welcome To The Canteen's Online Baby Shower
for all our Grandmothers-To-Be!
Luv W -- her son David, an active duty member of the US Air Force, and his wife are expecting baby #1

Lisa Malia - 2nd grandbaby, due in August

Mountain Flower - grandbaby due in July

Laurenmarlowe - grandbaby is due at the end of January

 

 

I like to walk with grandma,
Her steps are short like mine.
She doesn't say "Now hurry up",
She always takes her time.

I like to walk with grandma,
Her eyes see things like mine do -
Wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud,
Half hidden drops of dew.

Most people have to hurry,
They don't stop and see
I'm glad that God made Grandma.
Unrushed, and young like me.

~Poem by Thena Smith~  

 

Grandmothers

Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting.
Author Unknown

There's no place like home except Grandma's.
Author Unknown

A house needs a grandma in it.
Louisa May Alcott

When a child is born, so are grandmothers.
Judith Levy

Grandmas never run out of hugs or cookies.
Author Unknown

It is as grandmothers that our mothers come into the fullness of their grace.
Christopher Morley

We should all have one person who knows how to bless us despite the evidence, Grandmother was that person to me.
Phyllis Theroux

A grandmother is a mother who has a second chance."
Author Unknown

Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a little while.....but our hearts forever.
Author Unknown

If nothing is going well, call your grandmother.
Italian Proverb

A grandmother is a little bit parent, a little bit teacher, and a little bit best friend
Author Unknown

Perfect love sometimes does not come till the first grandchild.
Welsh Proverb

Uncles and aunts, and cousins, are all very well, and fathers and mothers are not to be despised; but a grandmother, at holiday time, is worth them all.
Fanny Fern

If I had known how wonderful it would be to have grandchildren, I'd have had them first.
Lois Wyse

You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother.
Proverb

A grandma's name is little less in love than is the doting title of a mother.
William Shakespeare

It is as grandmothers that our mothers come into the fullness of their grace. When a man's mother holds his child in her gladden arms he is aware of the roundness of life's cycle; of the mystic harmony of life's ways.
Christopher Morley

Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
Alex Haley

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. One moment you're just a mother. The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.
Pam Brown

My grandmother always used to say, “If you know your past and you know where you have to go, why do you rehearse?” I always remember this and it’s true. You have to start each day again—you can’t repeat what you did.
Marian Seldes

My Grandmother would say, "Make sure you look good. Make sure you speak well. Make sure you remain that Southern gentleman that I’ve taught you to be."
Jamie Foxx

To reform a man, you must begin with his grandmother.
Victor Hugo

Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete.
Marcy DeMaree

A grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween.
Erma Bombeck

It's such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother - that's why the world calls her grandmother.
Author Unknown

It took me a long time to get used to the reality that my grandmother had passed away. Wherever I was, in the house, in the garden, out on the fields, her face always appeared so clearly to me.
Huynh Quang Nhuong

When trying to determine the difference between a negative and positive force, ask yourself, "How will I feel when my mother and grandmother read about this in the front page of the newspaper?"
David DeNotaris

A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do.
Lois Wyse

A PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The light of God surround you
The love of God enfold you
The power of God protect you
The presence of God watch over you
Wherever you are, God is,
And all is well.
Amen.

BLESS THIS HOUSE
 Bless this house O Lord we pray; Make it safe by night and day; 
Bless these walls so firm and stout, Keeping want and trouble out:
Bless the roof and chimneys tall, Let thy peace lie over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove ever open to joy and love.
Bless these windows shining bright, Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth a'blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer;
Bless the folk who dwell within, keep them pure and free from sin;
Bless us all that we may be Fit O Lord to dwell with thee;
Bless us all that one day we May dwell O Lord with thee.

Plans And Realities

READ: Proverbs 16:1-9

A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. —Proverbs 16:9

When I went to Moody Bible Institute as an 18-year-old, I enrolled in the pastors program. I could picture myself preaching and leading a church just as my home church pastor was doing. Then, after hearing about the five faithful missionaries to the Auca Indians who were tragically killed in Ecuador, I even considered dedicating my life to missions.

But God had a different course laid out for me. Through His clear leading, and in accordance with the gifts He had given me, I became a teacher, editor, and writer.

Most of us have had similar experiences. We think ahead and carefully work out a plan. We picture in our minds with great detail how our future is going to unfold. But things don’t go as planned. Some doors close, while others open. If this happens to you, it may be that God has something completely different in mind.

It’s good to plan and dream and think ahead. But we must always be open to God-appointed changes in direction. “A man’s heart plans his way,” Solomon wrote, “but the Lord directs his steps” (Prov. 16:9).

God will never mislead us. When we trust Him with all our heart, He will direct our paths (Prov. 3:5-6). His way is always best.

Should mystery enshroud His plan
And our short sight be dim,
We will not try the whole to scan
But leave each thread to Him.  —Murray

Where God’s finger points,  His hand will make the way.
