Blogging through the Alphabet {Daughters and Delight}

D is for "Daughters"

I can't quite believe it, but my oldest daughter will be eleven tomorrow.


My darling, devoted, delightful, daughter.

Everyone needs a Bethany. She is SO helpful, and kind. She is diligent in so many things I ask her to do. She brings me so much joy, with her sweet spirit.

She is also a little ditsy, easily distracted and a daydreamer, but that just makes her HER, and I love her so much for all who she is.

We also find she is prone to little disasters - moments when she comes and says "Mum, I'm sorry but I (insert random disaster) " I just smile, help her sort out the problem, and think how alike to me as child she is, and  about the fact I have turned out OK, so she should, too!

Then there are my other daughters. I love them all deeply.  They are each a joy, in their own, unique ways. 

D is for "Delight"

We just had a delightful holiday, for 2 weeks, in Cornwall.  I know, I already told you about it last week, but I want to say it again. It was WONDERFUL.

I am back home, feeling refreshed, with many, many happy memories, of time with my family.

I am delighted to be back home. I love the home that the Lord has given me here, and I love the routine of our life.

I delight myself in the Lord, and everything He is to me. That He has saved me, keeps me, and gives me unmerited grace day by day.  I love Him, I love His Word.

It's just a quickie for my alphabet today, as I literally just back from holiday, but I didn't want to miss linking up.

Come back next week for my "E" post!

Ben and Me
