You’ve probably heard the saying that “Time flies when you are having fun.” From the time one of my grandchildren gave me the bear hugged telling me how much she loved me, until my favorite boy in all the world almost hug me to pieces to tell me how much he loves me, time went with “Jet” speed, or should I say like the Concord? It went much faster than flying with a helicopter!
The girls and I spent Saturday doing crafts. THey helped me with things I can use to illustrate my children’s materials. The latest is, of course, our Garruchaneo cat. Below are pictures of Sarah working on the cat. She was not satisfied with the one I had her color; she needed to do her own, which you can see on the bottom right. But she did one for me, the one on the top left.
Lana worked on a heart, that you can use as a puppet making it walk with your fingers. Brianna did both the cat and the heart, and she had a puppet show for us, which I only have on video. Someday, when I decide to pay the extra fee, I will put videos on this blog. As for now, the photographs will do. Brianna also colored a picture for a story about a smiley girl.
While the parents were on a date, the little one decided to be a little adventurous. She climbed on the couch to hug the dear
If you have been to the place where we spent the weekend, you’ll recognize the deer. I had a date in the evening.

I enjoyed a view to watch the sunset alone with my thoughts.
That’s it! Didn’t I say it was short? It was TOO short!
Now I am asking God for wisdom to use this week wisely, because looking at my agenda, it seems to be TOO short. We are told to ask for wisdom. I’m preparing a study on the subject, maybe for my next blog.
Weeks are also too short, when you’re having fun. “Find something that you like to do, and then get paid for it!” Someone else came up with this, but it is the honest truth. If you have a job you enjoy, thank the Lord for it. You are blessed.
If you do not enjoy your job, pray for one that you will enjoy. Life is too short to be miserable. Retirement is too short, not to enjoy it. That’s why I write stories, color pictures, publish Bible lessons–because I enjoy it.
Can you believe that I think a workweek is too short? I don’t look forward to Fridays. I like Mondays! On Mondays I can look forward to a whole week of fun!
God bless you! Have fun this week!
