A Refill Please!

Lil' Kc is getting pretty good in expressing himself. Not so much in words yet, but definitely in his actions.

Whenever his cup is empty, he usually comes up to me and hands it over. He then walks up to the kitchen and while doing so, looks over his shoulder if I am tagging along.

When I am not quick enough, he gestures with his little arm as a sign, meaning "Come on". He stops in front of the fridge, opens it and waits till I get out his juice. All this is his way of asking for a refill.

The other day, much to our surprise, he walked up to Opa and handed him his empty cup. Opa didn't get it right away. Not even when lil' Kc walked up to the fridge and gestured. I told Opa, his grand son was asking for a refill, but I didn't have to.

Apparently, it took a bit too long to suit our little rascal. He looked at Opa and said loud and clear: "Empy!" There was nothing to misunderstanding about that and he got his refill.

He sure has got his way of expressing himself. And of wrapping us around his cute little finger! :-)

At times, there is one fire after another, taking my energy and leaving me drained. My cup is empty, so to speak. God is gracious and merciful and all I have to do, is hand him my empty cup and ask for a refill.

He does more then just fill it up. He makes it run over. :-)

For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.”

Corry, I often think of God as a parent - and since I'm a parent I get something out of that, especially a gratitude for God's patience and unconditional love! But maybe looking at God like a Grandparent (essentially a parent with much more experience and patience) will allow me to see the joy God has for my brothers and sisters and I? I have my in-laws with me for about 2 weeks, and I am witnessing the sheer joy they have for my kids and how some things that try my patience and get my blood pressure up as a parent put a big smile on their face and a kinder tone in their voice.

I really love these stories of the lil uns and how clearly you illustrate God's love for us through your love for them! Thanks, Corry!

Don't they love that juice! We're having to recommend milk a little more strongly these days =]

Being a grandparent is really very different from being a parent. You will find out, hehe.

We have the kids and grandkids living with us now, so we see and hear them 24/7. Well, almost. But it still is a joy and we are grateful for the opportunity to be able to contribute to their upbringing. We all are learn from eachother. :-)

Have a blessed day.


We would, were it not for the fact that lil Kc is lactose intolerant. He gets soy milk each day, but if we had to give it whenever he is thirsthy, we would go broke. He is not only a little Redneck, but a Wetneck as well, hehe.

(((HUGS))) and blessings to you and those little rascals.

God's Grace.

Hi Corry,

It don't take long for them to learn ! This is a very good age to enjoy and make memories ! It is one of God's ways to fill our empty cups ? It was a couple of months ago when my oldest grandson came for a visit ? [ He's 25 ] He was kidding around with me and he said , by the way do you have any bannana popsicles in your freezer ? When he was that age I used to carry him to the little country store and bought him banana popsicles all the time ? He has always connected that with me and remembers it well ! Glad that you and Opa can enjoy them little fellows while they are this age !

Blessings and pray ya'll have a good Lord's Day .

Isn't it wonderful how they remember all those things? I do hope all the memories will be as good as that. We do our best. :-)

Have a very blessed Sunday.
