To Be Young Again...

... to be a child, to be a child! To have
the roads and the days all stretching out forward and upward and away.

~Gary Jennings

Sweet childish days, that were as long
As twenty days are now.
~William Wordsworth, "To a Butterfly"

Childhood is the most beautiful of all life's seasons.
~Author Unknown

Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.
~John F. Kennedy

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord.
~Psalm 127:3

The days have been absolutely beautiful here in PA. The children have made the most of them...getting lots of playtime in! We have schoolwork squeezed in between wonderful times of play. :)

I have finished the basket weave dishcloth I was working on (pictured above) and have now resumed knitting squares for the patchwork afghan I have been knitting my sister and her husband! :) I will be sure to share pictures of that, soon!

Today is Veteran's although we should be thankful for them every day...let each of us take the time to say *thank you* to those who are and have served our country...for us!
Thank you Veterans!
I appreciate what you have done for me and my family!

I hope you are enjoying your week. Thank you for visiting!

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. ~Ephesians 3:16-20
