Of Turkeys & Memories
Here is a picture of our oldest Grandchild, our Grandson CT, holding one of the poults. This brought back so many fond memories of him as a toddler, fascinated by other poults we raised.
The size his baby brother Little 'J' is now. Here Little 'J' is carefully reaching to touch one of my new poults. Just like his big brother did a few years ago. Where has the time gone?The turkeys have already grown so quickly, and so have our Grandchildren. I pray often I will remember these moments, so many sweet and special moments. Children and Grandchildren grow up and baby animals grow up even more quickly. We grow older so very quickly, and then... Life is a gift from God not to be squandered, but to be enjoyed, lived with love and joy in Him, no matter our circumstance. I want to remember this! "So teach us to number our days, that we may present to Thee a heart of wisdom, oh satisfy us in the morning with Thy loving kindness, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days...make us glad according to the days Thou hast afflicted us...and let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; and do confirm for us the work of our hands, Yes, confirm the work of our hands." Psalm 90 : 12,14,15,17
