Nitty.Gritty. On Air.

Today is a new day. Thank goodness! Chip's parents have been with visiting us and being entertained by the grandkids since last Friday night. It should have been all fun and games. Except that we passed on the stomach flu to them shortly after they arrived and it just wasn't as much fun as we had hoped we would all have together. We attempted to make the most of it and did manage some laughter and smiles as much as could be squeezed in between our recovering family and their need for rest and everybody's lack of appetite.
Today happens to be Brock's birthday! He is 11 years old and woke up with a grin on his face. He requested these rainbow pancakes for dinner tonight and I have no doubt they will brighten up mealtime this evening. His party is planned for a little bit later this month and hopefully I will remember how to take pictures of the event- it's been so long since we've had the camera on, which is very unusual for me. Time to get back into the groove!
Speaking of groove...
I am hoping to hit mine by 2 pm eastern time today as I will be calling in and sharing some of my heart and life experiences on The Well Radio program. You can listen live by following this link and then click the 'listen' tab. I don't know if I will have anything profound or life-changing to say on-air, but I am honored to be able to share a bit of what God has done and continues to do in our family's lives and hope that God is glorified- as He is the Author of it all. I will be sharing about our loss of Teagan and the importance of forgiveness, and even talking about how suffering has softened my heart and changed my perspective in life. I know if nothing else, I will be preaching a bit to myself and reminding me to trust God no matter what lies ahead!
The host of the show is my blogger friend, Adrienne Graves, and I encourage you to check out her blog and see what God has been doing in her life story too. We've never met in real life, but I am so grateful for her support and friendship through cyberspace. I'm excited to chat with her on the show today and I hope some of you get the chance to listen!
Radio show.
Rainbow pancakes.
Mellow birthday celebration.
It looks like things are getting back to normal around here.
And it feels good!
Happy Birthday, Brock... You are such a great big brother, a good friend to many and you are loved more than you know. Here's to a having a terrific year being eleven! Hope some of your wishes come true too!
