God's Amazing Creation

God's Amazing Creation

About Me

My photo
I love God!! I am a travelling RN working in labor & delivery. I have an AWESOME son & daughter in law and a brand new grandson! They will be fabulous parents because THEY are outstanding. I love the Seattle Seahawks...my favorite player hands down is Richard Sherman for a number of reasons. I love to draw portraits and I am dabbling with mixed media painting...I suppose I'm an artist! I love photography, but I'm a novice & am constantly practicing as I make my way through God's wonderful creation.

That Face

Oh That FACE! 
My son is keeping me updated fairly well with photos of this precious little soul. 

I absolutely can not WAIT to snuggle him again. 

His eyes get a little more blue every photo
His hair is a little more red 
I keep thinking it's not possible for him to get any cuter

Then I see that face
I'm so in love!

The Day After...

The day after what? Father's Day. One of the most difficult days of the year for me to get past without feeling melancholy. I miss dad. He was such a fantastic man. So much charisma. I wish I could have just one more long conversation with him...one more discussion about Christianity....and life. I wish he could meet the little guy who's name is like his, and who keeps his memory even more alive in my heart. 
(Didn't know that was possible.)
On a little more positive note...my amazing son is just as amazing a father already, and he was able to celebrate his very first Father's Day yesterday! It's really incredible how proud I am of him. I fall in love with him many times over again as I look through all the images I was able to take of him simply being the incredible man he is while I observed him caring for and falling in love with his own little man every day. 
From the very first moment...
thru the first day in the hospital

on to day two
creative feedings

Soaking in the special moments

Eskimo kisses
Big Blues!! 

I was only able to observe first hand for the first few weeks of his life...and I am SO anxious to get back there to spend some more precious moments with them! Daddy was keeping me updated with daily pix, but he's going to be busy with graduate classes for a couple weeks, so I guess I'll have to keep stalking facebook to keep myself current until he's finished! 
(Chompin at the bit!!) 
Thank heavens for modern technology! 

One month old as of yesterday. 
(My first "stalked" FB pic)

I am beyond blessed to have had such an amazing dad. 
To have an amazing son, and now, an amazing grandson!

God is not a respector of persons.
Why are some people? True believers in their own superiority??

The crazy thing is that those who are the most guilty of the offense are those pointing their fingers the hardest.

Frustrating for peacemakers.

For the falsely accused.

Sad and painful. Pray for these folks. All of them.

The Pain That Follows

Sometimes, even when you do what you know is right, the people in your world treat you like you are still making the same silly mistakes you made a time or two in the very distant past. Funny how people don't like to practice what they preach. Seems that those we love have the capacity to hurt us the most. They do it. It's baffling. They have to know that pain, right? It's almost like it's a game. I guess it is. The game of life. Funny too how love is only blind in certain cases. I suppose we'd all go crazy if we weren't able to create such blindness....but man, it's frustrating sometimes. Especially when it's at your expense. Lord, please help me have YOUR love for all. Don't let me turn a blind eye to anything at the expense of someone I'm supposed to love. Don't let me play the games of the insecure and selfish.
Please help me to understand more.

He's here!!! 
May 15, 2014
9 pounds 3 ounces
21 1/2 inches
Isaiah Phillip Queen

The most beautiful little face I've ever seen!

Okay, I did not correct the spelling of his name. I just realized that I "misspelled" it. 
The habit will be a tough one to break! His (middle) name was chosen by his daddy, and Phillip was my daddy's name, spelled as seen here. So, I am forever trying to remember, but I still forget at times...no one's perfect. 
I mean, except Isaiah. 
He had me at "waaaaaaaaaa!!!!" 
"Gammi" is in love.

Giving it Another Go

Yes, I realize in my last "Absentee" post I said I was coming back....I guess life prevented it. I want to be accountable in some public place and since this one already exists, I'm going to try to do it here. I'm not sure how this will work with my phone being the main device I use for on line activity nowadays, but I'm going to see what I can do. 

Life brings SO many changes. I'm going to be a Grandma....very very soon. Wowza. 

Can't wait to meet Isaiah Phillip Queen!!!
