Phenomenal Mercy and Grace

Christmas Day was incredible.
All of us together in one place.
Ten great-grandchildren....
Thirty-four grandchildren....even Nicole from Florida!
Numbering fifty-five with significant others... 
(only engaged/marrieds were included here)  
Mom donned her prettiest housecoat - funky headwear and padded over to the couch for a half hour visit with us.  We sang, played our instruments, received words and gifts from Grandma.
Much Joy and many tears all jumbled up together.  
Absolutely wonderful.
Thank You Heavenly Father - that was a very precious provision.

Mom wants to impress the words of Psalm 103 on her family:
.....But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love 
is with those who fear him, 
and his righteousness with their children's children -- 
with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
