In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

The grandkids are here for their summer visit. Here is our oldest grandchild, Alyssa. She has been wanting an American Girl Doll for a couple of years now. She is starting kindergarten this year and will be 6 on Oct 3. We decided to buy her the doll for her birthday, I just hope she remembers when only a card comes in October:) here she is making her way into the store.
She looked around for awhile and then finally decided on Kit
Here we are looking at accessories

The little kids were getting a little bored and wanted to go on more rides. We are at the Mall of America and there is a park inside the mall with rides. That post will come later.

Now it is time for grandpa to dig deep into those pockets and pull out his wallet. He really enjoyed the experience even if it was a little spendy.

She was so excited. The cashier said to the next customer in line" it is her first doll"

What a great memory for Grandpa and Alyssa

Now off to see more of the Mall and then home.

It was a big day for all the kids. Grandpa and Grandma went home and took a nap:)
