Double Delight - Two Babies on the Way in May!

Monday, November 16, 2009


I am BEYOND excited to share the news that we are going to welcome TWO MORE grandbabies to our family in May 2010!   Both of my sons and their sweet wives are expecting babies just FIVE DAYS APART!

My oldest son Jeremy and his wife Carrie (they are the couple on the left) are the parents of Zeke, my 15 month old grandson and "Gran Jan's Joy."  (This blog began as a way for me to process and record the joy of waiting for his arrival, which was a miracle of divine design.)

So their little boy, Ezekiel (everyone calls him "Zeke") is going to be a big brother sometime around May 16, and then he will welcome his cousin to the family around May 21!

My youngest son Jonathan and his wife Erin are on the right in the photo above.  They are expecting their first baby! Erin made these matching shirts as a way to "tell" the Double Delight news to my parents (the great-grandparents) who live next door to me.  Here they are walking over to my parents to share the news.  I was following behind with my camera to record the event!

Here they are going back over to my house after they told my Mom and was almost more than I could take in one evening.  I can't believe I am going to be Gran Jan times three, and I am counting my blessings.  The other day I heard a woman call her grandchildren "Grandblessings," and I loved that. They truly are grand blessings, and I can't wait to meet the May Babies!

Today is my birthday...and I can't think of a more fitting day to celebrate LIFE and God's goodness to our family. 

i am thanking God for the promise fulfilled in my life from His Word, found in Psalm 128, verse 6:

Psalm 128:6 
May you live to see your children's children.

Thank you Lord,
Gran Jan

O Praise Him!

Isn't that just like the LORD?!? I'm remembering your testimony about crying out concerning the gift of Zeke. Yes! Yes! Yes!

What a testimony your family has of God's AWESOME blessings.

BTW, my BD is May 22. Praying for nothing but moments of delight ahead for these newest additions.

I'm thinking 2 daughters/gdaughters...

My second little Grandblessing is a little girl....Eva Kate is on her way! Oh what a glorious season we find ourselves in! Praise Him!

I am remembering Psalm 16 this moment going through the inheritance on my own...and then visiting this blog this moment...I think the boundary lines have definitely fallen in pleasant places:)
