Grandkids Movin' On Up

Thank you Joyce for fitting in time for the
Wednesday Hodgepodge this week with all you have going on.
1. What would you say is the best and worst thing about moving house?

Having a clean slate to start over.  For us it meant simplifying our life with only the possessions we really loved and treasured.  Of course there are certain things that evoke no emotion and are kept for utilitarian purposes.  But for the most part, moving into our new home was a new beginning for us.  We have loved every day (nine years of days) that we have lived here.

2. What's moved you recently?

Physically, I have been moved to return to Pilates classes.  My body demanded it!
Spiritually, I have been moved by the reminder that God has all this political mess under His control and that He will be glorified in the end.

3. Do you feel your life is moving forward, backward, or is on hold? How so?

Some days I feel I move a few steps forward, then I take steps backward.  Most days though, I'm afraid I am on hold right now.  And not in a negative way.  I try to learn something new or stimulate my mind daily, but I'm not out tackling the world and making giant steps of accomplishments.

4. On the move, move mountains, get a move on, it's your move, or bust a move...which phrase best applies to some aspect of your life right now? Explain.

"Its your move" most applies to me right now.  I am one of the photographers for our church directory.  I've taken the pics, now it is my move to get them edited and turned into the church office for publication.

5. What song makes you want to get up and move?

I can't think of a single one.

6. Your favorite snack to grab when you're 'on the move'?

A protein breakfast bar.

7. What one accessory makes your house feel like home?

I love the affect of lamps, but the one item I think would be the large picture over our mantel.
We both love it.
8. Insert your own random thought here. 

As you may or may not know, our grandson plays football for Western Michigan University.  For the first time in school history they are now rated in the top 25 teams in the nation.  They have broken so many school records in the past two years.  This past Saturday night, they made an amazing play that was the #1 play nationally on ESPN.

It was a great one-handed catch by Corey Davis.  But, you must watch all the way to the end so you see our Big Boy #65 run into the picture.  He plays left guard.

Granddaughter #4 plays soccer for Penn HS in Indiana and they are now rated #4 in the nation.  They start the play offs this week.  Geaux Kingsmen!
Seniors - Granddaughter is #33
Our youngest Granddaughter, #6, will be playing the role of Gladys in "The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever" put on by "Creative Arts for Christ" at the Charles W. Eiseman Center for Performing Arts in Richardson, Tx on Nov. 25 and 26. She will no doubt steal the show in our estimation.
So, my random is a brag board today.

"Blessed by the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ."  Ephesians 1:3

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. Your mantle looks lovely! Congrats to your darling grandchildren! Have a great week.

  2. I love your mantle and have a similar look on ours. It makes me happy. Great stuff about the football players in your family. I know you are proud of every single grandchild. #33 is beautiful and your random is so cute. You have many blessings to brag about!

  3. Best Christmas Pageant Ever is one of my favorite children's books. I love your print. Poppies make me think of England as we had loads in our garden there. I have a poppy print too. Congrats to your grandson and his team! How exciting!!

  4. Well, it's perfectly fine for your "Grans" to be your random thought. They are doing great and Ava will be precious! Definitely something to be proud of. Have a good rest of the week!

  5. Enjoyed reading your answers to Joyce's questions. That is so awesome about the team your grandson is on. Awesome news on your granddaughters soccer team too! That is also very exciting about the pageant. Hey if I had grandchildren I would be right there with you bragging about them......

  6. Your blog is always so positive and uplifting, today being just another example of that. I loved reading about the accomplishments of some of your grandchildren, and the pictures are great.

    Visiting you today from the Hodgepodge.
