Mom and Dad's Visit

WAITING!!!!Have you ever had a hard time waiting for something? I think it goes without saying, that most of us do not like to wait.Whether its in line, in traffic, for get the idea. But what about waiting on God, just as tough I think. In Isa. 30 it mentions waiting several times. For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: (and then the sad words) and ye would not." Later it says "blessed are all they that wait for him." Are we part of the waiters, or the others, and you would not rest ? I would love to rush ahead in time to see how certain situations will turn out, but we must wait. I would love to see what Victoria will be like in say 5 years, but we must wait. Thank God its not a hopeless waiting, but it will be an unprofitable waiting if we miss the present. You see, we only live in the present, and sometimes we can miss the joy of the present because of our worry of the future. Quietness, and confidence is to be our strength . Okay, enough preaching.

We had a wonderful time with my parents who came to visit from Toronto.

No visit would be complete without games and food. Mom, you sure made us laugh in the balderdash game
My mom and Victoria
Can you believe that Dad is almost 80? Here he is staying fit in the school playground
Then there was the trip to Macdonalds

Thank you Aunt Ruth and uncle Wilf for providing for this meal. Our famous Roosevelt diner is closed, so had to settle for the Black Bear Cafe.

I am blessed with such wonderful parents. I think they enjoyed Victoria, and all the others too.
The time went all too fast.
