A Gift

20190428_173004

Every good thing and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.

Approximately two years ago, our son Austin got his first job working as gardener. His goal was to save up to buy a car.

Fast forward to last Saturday my parents invite us over to have dinner at Olive Garden.  Mmmm….endless garlic sticks.

To his surprise, Grandpa and Grandma gave Austin their Chevy Cobalt. Wow! 

My stepmom decided to turn in her driver’s license at age 79 and wanted to bless her grandson with their second car.

It’s a perfect starter vehicle.  It’s compact and in excellent condition.

Austin has been driving his sister and me to school and back every day since.

Not only is he learning  to drive, but how to maintain and insure it.

Thank you Lord for blessing our son with a precious gift! 

Have you ever received an extravagant gift? I’d love to hear about it. 

Blessings, Rebecca

The Krusees 8/2015

Last week, I watched Joel Osteen’s message, Healthy Familes. It resonated with me on all three points:

  1. Wives honor your husband
  2. Husbands respect your wife
  3. Parents prioritize your children

I’ve embeded his website link in this week’s blog for your enjoyment.

Watch Now!

My takeaway is to stop what I’m doing when my son or daughter want my undivded attention. This is a challenge as I tend to be task oriented, and have my “to do” list. I remind myself to put down the dishes or laundry, switch gears and play a board game or watch a family movie when they are pulling on my apron strings. It’s definetely a fine balance between completing household chores and spending quality time together. I realize they are only with me a brief time before they venture off to college, careers and family life.

I hope you too find Joel’s gentle reminder lends to a healthier family.

After watching Joel’s message, what is your takeaway? Please share it with us.

Happy Veteran’s Day!

I would like to thank all the brave men and women who serve/have served in the Unites States military. I appreciate your courage and sacrifice to keep our country free!

I’d like to send out a special thanks to my Dad, Jim Mosberger, who served in the US Air Force during the 1950’s. He was stationed in Savannah, Georgia. His passion was  maintaining  military airplanes until he discovered his color blindness. This news crushed him, however, he understood the seriousness of possibly crossing color coded electrical wires. As a result, he retired from the military and moved to California where he met my Mom. The above picture is his 77th birthday celebration…
