Don't know what has gotten me started today, but here goes. Maybe Freudian Slips post?
Look at this eye, my granddaughter, lovely lashes, and brown hue. I am amazed what children see and hear these days. I want to shield the eyes of my grandchildren from all the hypocrisy and evils of the world. I am not stupid enough to think there were not evils when I was a child, but it has become so pervasive. You can't even go to the mall without hearing objectionable language or seeing some folk with hardly anything on. Where has morality gone?
Not to mention TV and social events! Parents must keep in tune to what their children are seeing/doing!
This morning as I was polishing these little toe nails, I was truly amazed how much her hands and feet look like her moms. I was also reminded of my daughter saying NO you can't polish your toe nails and fingernails, so being the good granny I am, proceeded to polish them both! You can hardly see the polish! can ya! Little girls must be little girls. I can remember a time her mom had Black or purple nail polish! She came out alright!
It also made me think of the miles she will travel in her lifetime, the things she will do with these hands in the future. Hopefully she will honor God and her family with them!
I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson: to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power...
