There is something very special about a new beginning, a "first time." This is a picture of my youngest son and his bride on their wedding day almost two years ago...06-07-08. This day marked the beginning of their lives together! They had "only just begun" as the song lyrics repeat...it was a beautiful wedding, their first day as husband and wife.
This past Saturday, March 20, 2010, was another first! The beginning of a new season, the first day of Spring! The weather was absolutely beautiful, and the gardener in me loves the beginning of a new season of flowers.
But the "Gran Jan" in me had another *first* this past Saturday that I would love to share with you! A miracle of sorts, a blessing to enjoy thanks to the amazing technology of today. I laid eyes on my little grandson that isn't even born yet! Little Jackson, son of my youngest son and his sweet wife!
A FIRST! I saw my baby boy's yet unborn baby boy via the imagery of a 4-D sonogram. It was so amazing. My son and his wife and both sets of grandparents were there. We had a wonderful morning as we saw baby Jackson's sweet face. We can't wait to see him face to face!
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
And this last picture is another beginning...the first day my name became "Gran Jan" when little Zeke was born. Oh the JOY, Gran Jan's JOY!
