Plan B is for BOY and BLESSINGS!

Monday, October 27, 2008

Today I am baby-sitting my 2 1/2 month old grandson, Zeke. We are having sweet fellowship. Ezekiel is at that wonderful age where he is smiling and cooing, he is so precious. We have shared some secrets this morning and I have been singing "Great is Thy Faithfulness" to him. He loves it, and oh I can't wait to tell him one day how faithful God was to bless our lives with little Ezekiel Timothy... His father is my oldest son, Jeremy, who is a pastor. Jeremy has to conduct a funeral this afternoon. My darling daughter-in-law is finishing up her master's degree in marriage/family therapy counseling and had appointments that she must attend today. Her mother (the other Grandma who is Plan A and usually babysits) is ministering to the widow of the gentleman whose funeral is this afternoon and helping plan a meal for the family after the funeral. That's what we do here in the South. It is a wonderful blessing to families. So here comes Plan B - ME! The other grandmother - Gran Jan! I am Plan B because I am the mother of the BOY! It is a wonderful place to be, and I just blessed to be babysitting and part of the plan. All you mothers of sons remember that this is also God's Plan as spoken in the book of Genesis "for this cause shall a man LEAVE his father and mother and cleave to his wife..." Boys must leave and cleave and it is all me. I have raised two fine men and they are wonderful and God has given me two amazing daughters-in-law. I am so very blessed. Because I remember how much I wanted my mother with me when my boys were babies, I am totally okay with being Plan B! I am just blessed to be here and blessed to know the greater joy of God's Plan for this precious grandson. GOD'S PLANS ARE THE BEST OF ALL AND HE HAS A PLAN FOR EVERYONE...and His plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future! Jeremiah 29:11 Rejoicing in His Plan Today, Gran Jan, a.k.a. Plan B for BOY and BLESSINGS

Oh Jan,

I can just see you sitting there and singing over that sweet little boy!

What a beautiful post--and what lucky daughters-in-law you have. They are blessed!

I am a Plan C. And that is a-ok with me, as Plan C has not been implemented to date. But I have no fear, that there will come a day that Plan C will be just perfect.

The phone rang late in the afternoon yesterday and I was incredibly blessed to hear a precious little boy that won't be 5 until March, say: Hello Grandma Rogers. We had the most perfect little private conversation, just he and I. And when it was time for me to go and him to have his Grandpa to himself, I said "I love you".

You would never ever guess in a MILLION years what he said back to me, so pure, so raw, to like God. A God STOP for sure.

"I love you sweet Love".

Yep, that is what that pure sugar had to say in response to me and I'm going to stand on that for many many moons.

So with having never been a Mom, and the joy to be a Grandma, is truly a joy.

A gift!

What a wonderful post that truly spoke to me! I am a mom of 2 sons and I am glad you wrote that. I will start praying now I will be a terrfic plan B. :) My sons are 18 and 20. The oldest truly longs to find his mate and the other longs to use the talent God gave him in music.

I am looking forward to seeing you in March at the Minister Wives conference.
Have a great day!
