"Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged."
I started this blog two years ago last month during a time in my life I call the "waiting room" a definite season in my life. I desperately needed an outlet to share the pure JOY of becoming a first-time grandmother. Now I am a grandmother three times over! My sweet friend, Deborah was so patient and helpful to me in my early blogging days.
Today is the birthday of my first born's first-born...Ezekiel, my first grandchild we all call "Zeke." For one who never finds herself at a loss for words, I simply cannot describe to you the pure joy that springs from my heart because of Zeke's life. This little boy LOVES life and LIVES with pure joy!
Here he is trying to catch raindrops on his tongue when a nice summer shower passed through at his birthday pool party Friday night!
More evidence of his joy-filled personality:
Zeke, I love you with all my heart. You are such a sweet boy, and Gran Jan is not the only one who sees the special way you touch lives. You love animals, you love music (your favorite song is still "How Great is Our God" by Chris Tomlin), you love books, you love strawberries, you love tractors, and most of all, you love your baby sister Madie Ruth!
You have touched my heart way down in the deepest parts, places I never knew existed. I am so thankful for your life. I can't wait to teach you all that God is teaching me.
Happy Birthday to you Zeke!
I love you,
