Breathe the sunlit air, uproot weeds watered by tears.

Take a chance; sometimes you pass, go and collect $2. (My grandson and I play junior monopoly.) Sometimes you get sent to Park Place with a hotel that isn’t yours. “Pay up!” Sometimes I feel like Jimmy Stewart with Mommy Dollar and Papa Dollar by the end of the game.

I have a precious grandchild whose Mom and Dad are divorced, which isn’t very pleasant between them. But my ex-son-in-law has turned his life around and is now preaching. He is having a very positive influence on his son.
My grandson, for his birthday, asked for a suit to wear to church. His dad wears a suit every Sunday. And yes, we bought him a suit, shirt, tie, and shoes.
So never give up, take a chance on people and always be willing to give them a second chance. God may surprise you. He answered my prayer through my son-in-law, not my daughter.

Jonah, Samson, David, Moses, Peter, Mary Magdalene, Disciples, and more.. second chance people. God is in the business of second chances.

Philippians 1:6 “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

William wears glasses and loves dogs. I painted this for him.

    A Chihuahua wearing specs,
    what a wondrous thing to find,
    and I look forward to the next
    creation from your lovely mind!
    It perhaps might be a bass
    in a t-shirt, looking cool,
    cutting every boring class,
    and soon kicked out of his school?
    There is just so much to see
    when canvas meets the whimsy-brush
    in hand of creativity
    guided by the artist’s touch,
    and I really just can’t wait;
    I know what’s coming will be great!
