The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

More Kidlet Time
Weekend flew by, three oldest grandkids spent the night with us Saturday, we love spending time with the kidlets and will make any excuse to have them over. They came over this weekend so mom and dad could have a date night. Baby too little to spend the night but she got to have some Nana time with her other grandma.
They came over Saturday afternoon and we spent some time gardening. We took the planters apart, they were looking very end of summer and replanted with pansies and mums. Kids love digging in the dirt.
After our gardening duties were done and the little one woke up from her nap we headed to the beach playground. Our thoughts were, kids could play and we could sit and watch from a nearby bench. Nice thought but that wasn't the way it happened. Playground was big, couldn't sit and keep everyone in sight, especially the two year old, so we decided to divide and conquer. Husband kept track of two I kept track of the other, then we would switch. When I told my husband later that evening that they were gonna sleep well tonight he looked at me and said, you mean we are going to sleep well tonight.
When I am tempted to get frustrated with life's events, which seems to be daily, I know I need to remember the many ways I am blessed instead.
He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains. Let them give thanks to the Lord, for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he breaks down the gates of bronze and cuts through the bars of iron Psalm 107:14-16
