I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

I Am a Grandfather

Today at 4:30 PM my oldest son and my daughter-in-law had our first grandchild. His name is Malachi. He was 5 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 1/2 Inches long. Cute as a button. Dimple chin and curly hair.

All of the diligence parents put into their own children, to raise them in the ways of God, is not just for the good of their own children but also to lay a foundation for their grandchildren. What a blessing to know that Malachi is born into a Godly home with Jesus at the center of that home. What a destiny he has ahead of him.

And what satisfaction I feel in my heart right now, to know that he is well taken care of. Sleep in heavenly peace little Malachi. Tomorrow we get to work learning all of life's lessons. Grandpa will be there to help in at least part of it.
