The Gift

A strong set of lungs and a face like an angel were the first thoughts I had of this little granddaughter of mine.
I held her in my arms and looked up at her father, whom I had also held just like this many years ago.

Offspring of my offspring~joy of my heart.Suddenly, the term family tree had taken on a new meaning; it became a reality.

The gift of life is so precious.
'Behold, I will make you fruitful and numerous, and I will make you a company of peoples, and will give this land to your descendants after you for an everlasting possession (Genesis 48:4)

Prayer "Thank you Lord for precious gift of life"
