As I mentioned, this is a new experience for me, having a blog and all, so I don't have it in my routine to keep it up to date. The last few weeks have been very busy for me. I know these are only excuses and I pledge to try to do better at adding new posts.

We had the blessing of having our grandchildren around the house for almost a week. The blessings come in the form of adoration. It seems that they both adore their Pa Pa.

Kadence, (2 1/2 yrs old) loves to sit on PaPa's lap and have PaPa lightly rub his fingers across her back. She arches her back and giggles as it tickles a lot. But if PaPa stops, she is quick to say, "More Papa, more." She loves to sing songs for PaPa and Nana, and loves to talk with whoever will listen. A favorite fraise for her right now is, "That's amazing."

Brayden too, (5 months) loves to talk to his PaPa. He loves to lay on the bed and just jabber up a storm. If PaPa gets distracted and stops listening, he will add in a few squeals which are sure to bring PaPa's attention right back to him. When he hears PaPa enter the room, he watches PaPa, until PaPa looks at him, at which time he grins from ear to ear, as if to say, "You just come right over here and get me so we can visit."

I believe that we can learn a lot from little children. Like Kadence and Brayden, we should desire to be in the presence of our heavenly father. Communicating with Him should make up a big part of our day. Children spend every waking moment of the day learning. Maybe we should be doing the same. If we did, we might be using that fraise, "That's amazing," more often ourselves.

I pray you are taking advantage of each moment of each day to practice His presence. Scripture tells us that, "If you seek Him, He will be found by you." 2 Chronicles 15:2.
