Off to the Races
March 06, 2010 04:25AM
Today we went as a family to the horse racing. It was something new for us all, and we went because it was an Art Deco day :- chance to dress up, and there was a low entry fee for us, and free for the kids.

It was a fun day, although the weather turned foul. Wifey and eldest girl had worked really hard making the costumes for us to wear...we looked like Deco-era horsey people!

Funny too that when in the religious institution, we would never have considered it, as the gambling that takes place there makes it a "den of iniquity".

Onyx, your children are beautiful. Truly gifts from God. Did they enjoy the races? To them it was getting to see the horses not the other things that take place. We all need to try to see the world through a child's eyes a must be like seeing it through God's eyes.

News flash:
God is not angry with you. He loves you.
If you don't believe that,
or think it's too good to be true,
or that I'm making it up - ask Him! smiling smiley

Oh Onyx, they look so cute and those poses are right out of the 30's! All they needed was riding crops! Did you & Wifey dress up too?

Yep, and lots of it...a client asked me today, "Why is it that your kids have lovely golden curls, and you have no hair at all?" HmmmmI don't knowLaughing

They are four little blessings that I am very proud of, and I like to feel that way, because I know that Papa feels that way about me (and you!) too! They are all very smart, like their Mummy, the girls are beautiful, the boys are cute. And I am loving watching them grow up...realising that life here is so short!
