‭‭Psalms‬ ‭130:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬


Looking at this map of Belmont brought back some precious memories.  We lived there when Sarah (sincerelysarahstudios) was born.  While it brings sentimental feelings for that period of my life, I do not long to return to that time.  But while I know we should always live in the present, I tend to dream of the future and imagine something far better.  Most people do not think of me as an optimist because I tend to be critical (a great skill for scientific methodology and physician diagnostics), but I believe something far greater and better awaits us.  It is with that Hope that I proceed along my path.

Toys ‘R’ Us goes out of business after 70 years, leaving a void for many youngsters, and an unemployed giraffe named Geoffrey. How sad is that😭
So many children including my own have wandered in the magical wonderland of toys, imagining all the incredible possibilities. Will online sales replace that experience and spark the imagination in the years to come?? Somehow I believe the demand for such toy venues will return to recreate that dream.
