I stepped out our front door yesterday morning in anticipation of all the day had to offer. Our oldest, Jordan, was on the phone with his daddy saying that he and Jacqueline were at the hospital and it looked like their second child would be born soon.
I looked all around me and saw - Life! The sun was rising over the Atlantic Ocean and over the trees across the road. Our third grandchild was about to make her entrance and I wanted to capture for her what the morning of her birth looked like at Pops and Gigi's house in South Jersey.
Of course, our front window remains the same! How appropriate it was for Thursday10-7-10!
I thought about my Jesus and our scripture for this month:
- The WORD became flesh and made His dwelling among us
- from the Father
- full of GRACE and TRUTH
- one BLESSING after another
- GRACE and TRUTH came through JESUS CHRIST.
Yesterday afternoon, Kaleah Faith, came from the Father and made her dwelling among us. It is my prayer that she will come to know her Savior who is full of Grace and Truth. Oh, it won't be hard! Why? ...because she has a mommy and daddy and grandparents and extended family and friends who reflect the glory of the GRACE AND TRUTH THAT COME THROUGH JESUS CHRIST!
And last night, this Grandma Gigi got to talk to this wonderful family via SKYPE! Thank You, LORD, for a healthy baby girl and her daddy and mommy who stand in YOU!
Standing in YOU, Jesus, brings one blessing after another!!! As I lay my head on the pillow last night, I looked at the clock... interesting... I often look at the clock, LORD, and it shows 1:11. Those 3 ones remind me of YOU! Last night, I looked at the clock and there were four ones to remind me of the BLESSING you have given so many with this family of four. Thank YOU, Jesus!
