I've had my precious grandson since Saturday. Today after his nap he just wanted to cuddle, of course I didn't mind. As we cuddled I prayed for him. Being a grandparent is so different than being a parent. I have very little "control" over the raising of this child, but as I held him, I realized I am called to pray fervently for those blessings that God brings to our family. I am to pray for the next generation and the following.
When I dropped him off at home today he gave me a kiss and said "love you nana" I could have melted....he could have asked me for anything...good thing he's only two. :-)
I too am thankful for such a beautiful daughter-in-law that is seeking to obey and follow God. She wants to be a godly wife and mom. We continue to pray for my son - in God there is hope!
