Yesterday was a bit crazy.
But it was a really good day!
Before I got school going my daughter called.
She was requesting our Anne to come help for the day as pregnancy had kept her up most of the night.
Our granddaughter is a busy one-year-old, so we completely understood the desire for extra help.
All of us piled into the car a short time later.
Originally, I was just going to drop Anne off.
When I went in to give my love to Sis, I realized things had changed.
She was having contractions.
We stayed to see if they’d leave.
Thankfully, our son-in-law was only a little over an hour away, so he headed home.
We are staying at their house so it’s more comfortable for our granddaughter.
Our school day had major changes, but valuable lessons in it all.
It was obvious that our sweet little girl was trying to figure out why her parents had not returned.
But good news was on the way!
There’s nothing like that moment when you see a text from your son-in-law after hours of waiting.
Our precious grandson was born yesterday evening and we are so thankful!
What a wonderful surprise!
He wasn’t due until the 26th of this month, but God’s timing is perfect.
Praise the Lord!
Psalm 40:5 KJV — Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You so much for our grandson. Please continue to heal and strengthen our daughter. Please keep Your hand upon this precious baby. Lord, from the moment we heard another baby was on the way I have lifted them up to You. Please bring this child up in Your ways and give his parents the understanding of how to raise him to love and honor You. Lord, place Your hand upon him and guide his steps that he might be a godly man, a mighty man of valor. Lord Jesus, thank You so much for this precious new gift! We are humbled by Your blessings. Thank You. May Your name be glorified throughout the whole Earth. Amen.
