Becoming a Grandparent!

I'm filling in for Renee, so I just thought I'd blog about what I'm bursting to tell the world! I'm just weeks away from becoming a grandmother, and I can't wait.  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. KJV James 1:17  After raising four children, my husband and I realize that this monumental responsibility has only been accomplished by the grace of God. Phew!!  And now, what a joy to be anticipating the birth of our first grandson, Gavin Michael, in December, and another grandchild in January.  I loved being a mother, and I'm told there's nothing like being a grandparent.  In a sense, our parenting task is still not complete, as now we get to "parent" in a "grand" way!  Giving lots of love, hugs, kisses, and prayers, and living a godly life that points our grandchildren to the Lord!  So, fellow grandparents, we're joining the ranks, and God's grace abounds!
