Every time I think of my Grandson, I know that God watches over out family. My daughter was one of those rare women who did not stop menstruating during her pregnancy and did not put on any weight until the very last. As a result, she had a complicated delivery and the baby came early. He is of normal weight, height, intelligence, etc. Preemies are often behind for several years. I prayed HARD during the delivery. I believe that God looks after his own. 1 Corinthians 1-9 God is faithful by whom ye were called.

Here is the LO I made to express the feeling that I had that he was a gift from God and that God had been watching over our family.


I recently ran across a new, (at least to me) type of scrapbook journaling. It’s called Faithbooking. I think it is terrific. Some of my most profound thoughts are spiritual.

These days it is more politically correct to be Muslem, than Christian. While that sounds very prejudiced to say, it is very realistic. My children were not allowed to pray in school, but the Muslim students at certain times of the day, would throw their prayer rugs down and pray out loud in the middle of class.

Anyway, whatever way you can express your faith is a good thing, who knows how long it will be legal? Here’s a good link for ideas.
