Precious Jewels ~

Sharing one of my precious jewels with you today~

Guess who paid me another visit yesterday?
Yep ...you guessed it...
My precious jewel of a granddaughter
Annika ~
She adores all sorts of
pretties...
a sweet little girl after my own heart~
When I found her gazing at them I couldn't resist snapping pictures ~
She picked each one up
very carefully,
took it out of the bowl,
and laid it on the top of the chest~
Stretching those
precious little feet
to reach~
"Ooooooo this is a pretty one"... ~
She put on each and every necklace
and even tried to get some bracelets on too.
Once in a while she would look at me and say, " You need to fix this one" {lol} ~
A little "oops" here ~
I was very surprised when she said,
"I love this"
and kept asking me to open it.
{It amazes what she says at only 2 and 1/2 years old}
Don't you just wonder what is going through their
sweet little minds at moments like this ~
Putting all the jewels back where they belong because...
Daddy said,
"Come on Annika...it's time to go"
She just could not leave until she put
every little piece back into the bowl that they came out of.

She is one of my
Precious Jewels
and I adore her. ~

This reminds me so much of another childhood song
that I sang in Sunday School:

Precious Jewels
Little children, little children
who love their Redeemer
Are the jewels, precious jewels
Bright jems for His crown.

Like the stars of the morning
His bright crown adorning
They shall shine in their beauty
Bright gems for His crown.

Enjoy and blessings~

She is darling - and those eyes! Little Annika is well on her way to a lifetime of treasure seeking, I am sure. I have never heard the "Precious Jewels" song - I love that.

Sandi, that post made me cry...such a precious precious gift God has given just to you. She is a girl right after Granmas' heart. I think she found your "go" button. Give her a kiss on the cheek and a squeeze just from me. (They grow up way toooo fast)
Have a wonderful weekend and the Lord bless that little child.
