Childhood experience & A country lass

Today I took my little grandson to church, I want him to feel at ease there so that when it is time for him to go to bible school he will feel completely comfortable and it will be the most natural thing for him.
My own experience was so different. I was suddenly taken to Sunday School by someone I hardly knew, Mummy didn't come and I was so scared, I remember screaming as I left the house I could not have been more than 3 or 4. My parents didn't go ever yet both myself and my brother were sent. I rather enjoyed it for a while but then I had a teacher who frightened me and after that I refused to go for a long while.

So many memories seem to be flooding back to me, triggered by such small things sometimes. I want to learn from these experiences so that I can help my grandchildren to be overcomers.

OK a bit morbid, sorry, but I needed to write it down somewhere.

On a much better and brighter note I have been scraplifting again and have done a lovely page of my daughter. She is a outdoor girl and loves to walk, both her and her husband are now encouraging their son to enjoy this pastime too. Although you can't see where she is in these photos you can see that it is outdoors in the countryside.

Today I am thankful for the chance to take my grandson to church
to have a loving family around me
to have a Father God who loves me so much that he never lets me go.

It is helpful that we can use our own experiences to help our children or grandchildren. I'm glad you can see your bad experiences in a positive way. That must be good for you.

That layout is very unusual. I like the diagonal title and the two photos either side of it, but I have never seen one quite like this before. Very different (I'd say "original" except you say it's a scraplift!).

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
