Happy Are We

Blessed are the poor in spirit 
 for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:3 

I don't know why I took this picture...probably because our backyard looked pretty in the fog in the evening.  As I look at it, I'm inpressed by the blessings we have.  We're not rich people by America's standard but we feel very wealthy.  

I feel particularly blessed today.  We kept three of our grandchildren overnight, something we try to do a couple of times a month, and having them here is a joy.  The fourth child is not ready to stay overnight yet but we're getting there.  He stays long enough to eat supper, play and get a bath.  It gives Mom and Dad a few hours together until they pick him up...ready for bed. 

We will see four more grandchildren this week and we look forward to that so much.  We don't get to see them very much...only two or three times a year so our visit is special.  Last week we visited our other seven grandchildren to celebrate a high school graduation.  We love to celebrate!

In reading Matthew 5 today...The Beatitudes. I realize that we are truly given these gifts by God...A little home, a nice yard, a place to store the machines that make us money, a few swings and a loving family.  What more could we want here on earth?  God is good and we are very much aware of our blessings.
