Harper and Her Donkey

Last night when we met my sister, Linda and BIL, Bob, for dinner, they brought Harper a new little toy. Just wanted to say "Thanks" to them from Harper! She is enjoying it tremendously, but I don't know if she has figured out if it's alive or what!


She and I tried a little afternoon trip to WM! Let's just say she'd rather go to Target, I think!
She didn't want to take an afternoon nap so it is almost 6 pm and I just got her to bed. She was worn out and so was I!! But we're lovin' it!!!

The sweetest thing I have loved is her holding on to my shirt neck while I rock and feed her.
I just think how much I love her. She trusts me with her daily care, sleeping peacefully because she knows she is safe and loved.

Should we not be that way with our Heavenly Father? I want to cling to Him and be perfectly content knowing He loves me better than anyone and is taking care of me with His very best.
That's the relationship you can find in Jesus! He's all I want, He's all I need!

Please keep praying for my "kids" away from home. I know they are missing their sweet baby!

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen! I have 7 grandchildren from 5 to 19 and yes it can be exhausting taking care of them but they are so precious. Blessings and keep up the good work! Dianne

You are absolutely right in that we should be that way with our father. If we juts put our trust in him completely we will always be safe.

I am a regular reader of Kelly's Korner, so I had to come over and get my Harper fix! :-) You are fantastic for posting about Harper so that Kelly and Scott can check in to see her! So awesome that you are technologically savvy enough to post pictures and videos, too. You definitely get the cool grandma award. :-)

It's official... she's absolutely the most precious baby ever!! I LOVED getting to visit with Little Miss H today! Bring her by again tomorrow!!!

I love that she doesn't quite know what to think about Mr. Donkey. And your voice and Kelly's are a lot alike!

Kara said...

My SIL bought my Harper the same thing for Christmas..so funny! Hope she claps when he sings to her!

I am kind of embarrassed that I get such a kick out of "experiencing" the life of another family whom I do not even know, but you are all such a blessing! It warms my heart to see such love and care within a family. Harper is inheriting a beautiful heritage - something we do not deserve, nor can we earn.... Another Christlike attitribe!

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Enjoyed chatting with Kelly tonight. The Lord was in this place~

Carrie said...
