Spiritual Sundays

Hello everyone~ Welcome to my blog for Spiritual Sundays.

I came across this beautiful shot on the Weather Network. It was taken in August at Covehead, a village near where my husband grew up. I thought it a glorious photo of a sunrise, God's handiwork, and wanted to share it with you.

I was tempted to add a scripture verse to it but thought I would leave it as is. It brought to mind several scripture verses but I decided on this one.

Our Father, which art in heaven.
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Matthew 6: 9-13

It pains me to think that the younger generation will not learn to say this in school any longer. God help our children and our children's children! We must teach them ourselves for we can no longer depend upon the school system in Canada or the United States to teach it to them. But when you think about it, they should be taught at home first of all anyway!

Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday. Please visit Spiritual Sundays with Charlotte and Ginger and the other participants. Click here or the Spiritual Sundays button on my sidebar.

Someone Special Has A Birthday Today!

"Happy Birthday Brent"
Good morning everyone! Today I'm celebrating my second little grandson's birthday. Brent is 6 years old today; hard to believe!

This little guy is a cuddly, talkative, and critter-loving fella. He is my oldest son's second boy and Brent was named after him. When Brent talks to you, he looks you right in the eye and you are his whole world at that moment. He is a very special little boy with a big heart, who shares the same birthday as one of my all-time favourite celebrities, Michael Landon.

This is Brent and his best buddy, his little brother Jared. He has two brothers.

Brent is taking after his Daddy; he loves critters and nature. Here he is admiring the salamander he caught and took home and kept until a month ago. The salamander has since been released into the wild to hibernate for the winter.
This is Brent holding his very first teddy; the one we got him when he was first born. It is still his favourite.
Here he is pictured showing off the first tooth he lost. Isn't he a handsome little guy? I think someday he's going to have all the ladies swooning!
His grandfather and I are taking him out on the town this morning to help him celebrate his special day.

Happy 6th Birthday Brent!
Jesus loves you & so do we!
