So, I'm going to just come right out and say it: grandchildren are wonderful! We've been blessed with another grandson. Our oldest son and his beautiful wife have delivered a miracle. It's truly amazing to hold him.
The night she was in labor was a sleepless night for me. I could hardly contain my excitement. And, then when he entered the world, my emotions went crazy. I couldn't stop crying or smiling. Oh what an amazing God we serve to bring to us this little miracle!
We have been given five incredible children, and our three oldest are now fathers. They are so impressive.
Our son came for a visit this evening and brought his newborn son with him. They went out for a drive. My heart soared just watching him with his son.
The journey of life sometimes grabs me in unexpected ways, and I feel overwhelmed with all of it. Sometimes I feel like I need to pinch myself, because here I am with this huge family and I cannot begin to explain the love I have for each of them.
Today as I prayed for them, for my new grandson, I felt hesitant to give them all over to God's will. I noticed that there was an element of fear inside of me, WHAT IF, God's will brings a pain that I do not understand? I want all of them to be spared from any pain, I want my sweet children to live in bliss.
This was my confession to God today.
And, He whispered to me; "Bethany, my will is bliss for I am life and your eternity."
Oh Jesus, hold my family in your hands and bless this new child!
"My will is bliss" Say That Again!
