Mosaic Monday from weekend birthday party and Jingle Poetry

Mosaic Monday from the weekend,
with Mary at Little Red House.

1 Hannah the birthday girl in "The Chair"
2 Have to have balloons for a party
3 Good  food, too
4 Snuggles with Gibby
5 Hannah with cake
 6 Hannah with friends.

For HH and I another beautiful grandbaby reaches a milestone.
For her mom and dad their first 16 year old.
We remember the day her mom turned 16.
For her and her sister, family and friends a big, big, day.

Both sides of her family were there and it was a great time.
Of course it is hard to believe this precious baby is 16.
Go here for Mosaic Monday with Mary 

Hooking up with Jingle Poetry Potluck Monday, also.

signs of the ny times

i hear the news heralded about
and feel my soul shrink back
and try to hide away
so as not to feel attack

i know i'm acting like a coward
no one wants to feel a wound
it is the natural thing to do
this sadness came too soon

but that is not the seed of light
i know is there from God
i know i have the guts to trod
this road He put me on

rise up bright light
 and shine that beam
on what i hear today
i know not what it may seem
or good that it may bring

Happy birthday to your granddaughter. At 16 they can touch the sky, at 21 they can even fly, as a parent they learn to teach, as a grandparent a time to whisper all is within reach, if they have learned their role, and understand God is in control.
