We got about 13 in. of snow yesterday, Jan. 30, 2010. Not a lot for some areas of the country, but quite a bit for western NC. I caught this sweet sparrow out back where I have the birdfeeder. I'm pretty sure he's a song sparrow. So many sparrows:)
When I see the birds, and especially the sparrow, I can't help but think of this verse in Matthew 10: 29: "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father." Those were Jesus' words. In other words, if He cares so much for the sparrow and knows when each one falls, does he not much more care for us?
I find these words to be very comforting and know that I am in His hands and He knows what's best for me.
Our church service was called off today because of the bad weather, so hubby and I will worship here at home. I pray you have a blessed day in the Lord.
Hallelujah to the Lamb that was slain!

My precious new twins

James - top
Jonathan - bottom

On Dec. 30, 2009, my daughter-in-law gave birth to two little boys.........preemies at just a little over 4 lbs. each, but are growing rapidly since being home! I've gone over to help out a few times, not as much as I had hoped at first. I got sick after the first couple times I'd been over to help, so I really missed the little fellas. Finally got back this week and had some special "cuddle" time with them, along with my 3 other precious grandchildren! Wow, they are the best helpers for mommy :)

New blogger and new grandma

Welcome to "Mimi's" archives.
I am a new blogger, and an older one. I will be 61 soon and have been married for 36 years to a wonderful man. Our meeting was not by accident. It was divinely ordained by my Lord, Jesus Christ. Maybe someday when I get more comfortable blogging, I will share my testimony about how we met. Yes, I am a follower of Jesus Christ, and without Him I am nothing.
My husband and I were blessed with two wonderful sons, Nathan and Anthony. They have since left home and married the most beautiful ladies, inside and out:) I like to think of them as the daughters I never had. One is Janelle, the other Casey.
Janelle just blessed our lives with another set of twins! Jonathan and James :) They have another set of twins named Jesse and JoyAnn, then their big brother is Joseph!
So, as you can see, "mimi" and "grandpa" are blessed as can be with grandchildren :) I would be interested in meeting other Christian "grandmas" to exchange ideas, blessings, prayer needs, etc. I also enjoy nature and taking photos for fun!
Well, I guess that's it for now. Mimi to 5
