Babies make me Laugh!

Babies Make Me Laugh
Written by Patti Greene

I wish I were the kind of blogger who has blogs written months in advance, but I am not!!! Most weeks I am on the lookout for new material to write about and what you see is usually about as new and fresh as it comes. But, this week you will have to indulge me a little. You see, for the past 5 days, my husband and I have been given the wonderful opportunity for some “special” time with our 16-month old granddaughter while her parents and two brothers went on a vacation of their own. And as always, babies are so much fun. [Pictures have been removed. To be replaced soon.]

This little girl has been such a joy, but caring for a baby takes time and ENERGY. So, in this week’s blog, I am allowing myself some creative time sharing some baby pics and Bible verses since I just experienced one of those busy summertime weeks.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. 2 Timothy 1:5

“When grace is joined with wrinkles, it is adorable. There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age.” Victor Hugo

. . . likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire. 1 Timothy 2:9

Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eye is wasted from grief; my soul and my body also. Psalm 31:9

Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10

With my voice I cry out to the LORD; with my voice I plead for mercy to the LORD. Psalm 142:1

Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— 1 Peter 2:2

Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” Psalm 126:2

the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance. Proverbs 1:5

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11:28

all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ Acts 20:35

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. James 4:17
