I had the great fortune to spend her first night with my new grand daughter, Riley. She and mother, Amy, are doing well. I was relieved to be able to still read the cries, change the diapers, and put the new babe to sleep with singing, prayers, and a covering of safety and love.

It is good to be able to comfort and be trusted by your children. It is also a great relief that Riley took to her grandmother as a person of comfort and safety. My bucket is full and I am SO tired. But I wanted to show you these sweet memories before I go to take a little afternoon nap.

It is truly a blessing to see one's grandchildren.


...may you live to see your children's children.
Ps. 128:6

Children's children are a crown to the aged...
Prov. 17:6

Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching. They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.
Prov. 1:8-9
