From my Front Porch ~ January 17, 2014

Welcome back to my weekly series, From my Front Porch, where I share updates from my home and family. My hope is that you'll fix yourself a cup of coffee or tea and imagine us sitting together on my front porch, chatting about life and catching up on the latest news!  I hope you'll join me each Friday on My Front Porch!  

Last weekend I got to keep my little granddaughter for the weekend, so her Mommy and Daddy could get some R&R before my son started his final semester of nursing school.  Being a nursing student, while also working a full-time job as the program coordinator for the YMCA, being a husband and a brand new father is a Tall Order!  My son (and his wife) could certainly use your prayers this spring!  

It was fun (and Exhausting!) having a baby in the house again!  :)  As you'll see below, my granddaughter is one precious little baby!  :)

Isn't this picture adorable?!?

Having Sarah here for the weekend allowed for some great auntie and uncle bonding time!  :)

If you're a grandmother, I'd love to hear what your "grandma name" is and whether you chose it or one of your grandchildren just started calling you something that stuck!  I've been thinking about it, and I think I've settled on Marmee.  My husband is calling himself Coach! ;)  We'll see what happens when Sarah learns to talk!  ;)

Saturday afternoon, thunderstorms rolled through our area bringing in a cold front.  In the evening, as the sun began to set, we saw the most amazing rainbow over our house!  It was a full arch with a faint double rainbow!

The setting sun gave a sort of eerie glow to the sky.  My pictures don't really do it justice, but I wanted to share it with you anyway!

Seeing this beautiful rainbow reminded me of a time when right in the middle of a crisis, God spoke to me through a beautiful rainbow which appeared on a clear, sunny day, letting me know that He was in control and everything was going to be OK! One day, I will share that story with you!

"Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the 
brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD
So when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of One speaking." ~ Ezekial 1:28

When was the last time you saw God's glory displayed by a rainbow in the sky?

Thanks for stopping by my front porch for a visit! I'd love for you to take a moment to "sign my guest book" (leave a comment!) so I can know that you stopped by and enjoyed your visit!  Please join me again next Friday on my front porch!  (In case you're wondering, my friend, Lori, has been too busy for front porch chats, as she has been immersed in planning and preparing for her first wedding! I hope she'll be back soon!)
