Grandchildren

Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. — Proverbs 17:6 NIV

If the aged are those who have grandchildren then I will give in and agree that I am aged. And if grandchildren are a crown to the aged then I will have to say that my crown was filled yesterday with the most beautiful jewel weighing eight pounds, one ounce. I was blessed by our good Lord with a beautiful granddaughter yesterday and she is truly a joy beyond expression. I cannot thank my Lord enough for His wonderful bundle of joy wrapped in a pink precious little girl. My heart was overwhelmed by this little delicate child.

And to see the proud parents of this little girl beaming almost as bright as the jewel in my crown overjoyed my heart. I thank God they chose to have this baby and their decision to raise her in a Christian home. If this does not speak of the power of God in the lives of believers I don’t know what does. May they choose to glorify God through the family they have. I know I will be praying for them.

Thank you for allowing me to ramble on about my grand-baby but all is to the glory of God who allowed me to experience such a miraculous life event.

Continually seeking Him,

Crown of Life

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved (passed the test) he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. – James 1:12

That verse is a mouthful. It is filled with so much good stuff but this devotion will focus on God’s promise: ” the crown of life to those who love Him”. God keeps His promises and it takes trials in our lives to show us that His word is faithful. We can count on all his promises by trusting and loving Him. As we trust and love Him, He helps us to persevere and one day, in eternity, we will receive that crown of life because we were steadfast and faithful. (Revelation 2:10)
