The Best Medicine

My two precious granddaughters, 9 months and 6 years, are coming this afternoon for a weekend visit. I can't tell you how much this tired, achy old body needs a dose of the aliveness they bring with them. The oldest one is so funny and cracks me up with all the things her six going on sixteen brain comes up with. I resolve to enjoy every minute and think nary a bad thought.

I know Jesus is The Great Physician and has the only lasting relief and remedy for all my ills. But these little gals are the next best thing. Sometimes I just need to feel joy in the palm of my hands; sometimes I just need to wrap my arms around solid delight; sometimes I just need to kiss the cheeks of exuberance and cuddle up
surrounded with pleasure, so that some of it will rub off on me. I praise God for these priceless gifts God has blessed me with.


  1. I don't even know them personally and they're making me smile. They are so adorable sister Peggy. I'm glad you get to spend time with your precious blessings! God bless you.

  2. Oh, my, are they cuties for sure, Peggy. Thank you for sharing them with us and giving us a thrill! Your thoughts are precious, too.

  3. Such beautiful babies! I know my grandmother's heart is always captivated when the grandchildren are about. For that time I have no worries or cares, nothing to fuss about or achieve. Just their presence is a balm.

    Enjoy your medicine.

  4. So many times the Great Physician gives His medicine in packages of little people!

    Lovely! I know they make you smile all over.....
