A Gift of the Written Word, From My Dad

Happy Sunday to all! I have been wanting to write this post for a couple weeks now.  Better late than never.  I will try to make this long story short 🙂  A little history first!  I am the baby of my siblings, my sister the oldest, two years later my brother than two years later me! 🙂  My Father passed away when I was two years old.  Recently, my sister had lunch with my aunt ( on my Father’s side) and she gave her some letters written from our Dad.  What a gift!  He was writting home to his parents from a boarding school which he attended at age 15!  Every week for five years the letters were written!  He was going to a Seminary school.  His parents must have saved them and then his siblings kept them.  There were 7 siblings!  I got the letters from my sister at our Thanksgiving celebration at my home.  She wanted me to go ahead and start reading them for she was going on a cruise! We were putting them into sheet protectors so they will last!  What a beautiful gift His written word was.  I will tell you at the end of every letter he wrote, Your loving son, Philip!  Every day I sat on my porch reading each one and being to thankful that they were saved.  A part of my young Dad’s life.  He always listed his marks, (grades) in the letters and asked about his younger siblings too.

I just thought I would share such a beautiful gift it was.  I know I often speak of some of your written word on your blogs!  You may not even know the legacy you are leaving, and giving us a glimpse of your lives!  Well, I surely value it!

The letters are back with my sister for her to finish, then my brother, Then my daughter and grandson!

I thought I would share this special gift with you all!

Have a Wonderful Day and Week Ahead!

Thoughts This Thursday…

I have been wanting to post so much lately, but my time management skills are lacking!!  When I would go the Word press it kept saying, “loading error”!  I couldn’t read anyones posts!  I sure am glad I worked this problem out and am catching up.

I have been wanting to post about So many loved ones and friends whom seem to be having so many medical issues this year.  Thankful for prayer, we surely can alway use them.  As I have mentioned in a previous blog, I started a Prayer Journal.  I love the Journey and I have been praying intentional along with Praising!  I recently have thought about going digital on my Prayer Journal. I am not sure if I am ready for it.  I have been very consistent and enjoy the pen to paper.  What are your thoughts about change like this?  I like the idea that you can have it with you anywhere, digitally.  I wouldn’t start til after Christmas though.  I have even downloaded the apps! Well, this is what I have been thinking about for over a month!  Let me know your opinions, or if you already do these things digitally!

Have a Wonderful Evening!

Knitting Dishcloths

So, I finished this dishcloth last night and had to weave the ends in this morning.  I also was searching where I got the pattern from this morning!  Not on my pinterest, not you tube, hmmm I will surely edit this post when I find who the designer is.  Without further a do.  Oh, a note on the stitch pattern,  keep your stitches a bit relaxed, so when you do the yo k2tog it is easier! 🙂

Have a Wonderful Day!
