The best wine…

When they ran out of wine at the wedding feast

You turned the water into wine

The wedding guests all commented that the best wine had been saved for last


Days of summer are slipping away

Days before my precious ones leave for Ghana to do Your work

Do a miracle here, Jesus

Save the best wine for last


Another birthday has come and gone

They seem to come and go faster every year

You said our latter years would be greater than our former years

Do a miracle here, Jesus

Save the best wine for last


You said children are a blessing

And children’s children are a crown

I’ve tasted and I’ve seen

You’ve done a miracle here, Jesus

The best wine is saved for last!




The children and grandchildren are all home to spend the last days of August together.  Middle daughter and her family leave for Ghana this fall so this is our last time all together before they leave.  The next couple of weeks I am sure that I will be a bit hit and miss here and may not be able to respond to your comments or get around to visiting.  I’m sure you can understand.

Oh, and this week’s simple pleasure is a picnic at the river with my grandbabies. Smile

Still following,
