7 Quick Takes Friday at ConversionDiary.com


  1. An Introduction of a new life.     On  Wednesday, I became a  grandma for the second time to a grandson.  He looks exactly like his Scottish grandfather and father. The baby’s entry into the world was very fast, especially considering this was my daughters’ first baby.  Next time,  at the first twinge and they will be rushing to the hospital. He is only 6 lb. 3 oz. but perfect.

2. A moment of peaceful awe as 5 of us crowd

3. Another snow storm. So happy Declan was not born today.  Declan  is a good Scottish name.

Declan  =Celtic name meaning Good One!!!

4. I wrote an article this week on the the affect of loving our children. A loved child has the freedom and inner fuel to change the world

If my children could remember only three things to take with them into their adult life , what would I want them to be?

5.Words to ponder:

A. Trust that I love you and believe in you. Let that love be your foundation and your springboard into life.

B. God loves youjust as you are. Relax in that Love, let it sink in , heal you, strengthen you and release you into freedom and joy. Don’t try to save yourself and everybody else on your own . Notice that I called God Lord. Let God be God and don’t steal His job.

C. Reach out and allow love to flow through you to your partner, children, neighbours and in doing so discover your unique vocation, your work in the world.

6 .A child rooted in love becomes a secure, warm, giving adult who attracts as much light as he reflects. He can live in relative peace  intellectually as well as creatively. Most of us spend years dealing with love, trust, fear, guilt issues.

7.Can you imagine a whole generation of young people healed and set free to serve the world in and through Love? It would be heaven on earth. It would be the beginning of a revolution that would change the face of the earth.

      1. Some people mispronounce the name: Deek-lan, or Duc-lan. Usually his friends pronounce his name properly, sometimes they call him Ducky. We just say Declan. I think it’s becoming a more common name.
