Welcome Nathan Peter Lawrence.

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

My 5th grandchild made his entrance into the world this weekend. Tiny, red, bruised from being born face up. He is helpless, scared of the noise his older siblings make and totally reliant on Mom for everything. He is so helpless. As I hold him close and marvel at his being, a nagging fear nibbles my mind. What will life be like for him as he grows? Will he have to endure bullying, abuse, hatred, fear, war, etc. I look at this child and he looks back through squinted eyes and then.. I see hope. The words of a Gaither song pop to mind..." How sweet to hold a newborn baby, and feel the pride and joy he brings. But greater still the calm assurance, this child can face uncertain days, because He lives" As I bow my head in prayer of thanks for this life I also ask forgiveness for doubt and fear, my Nathan can face what is coming because Christ lives! In difficult times may we all remember Jesus holds the future and we can face what comes because of Him.

    What a precious gift for that baby boy, a grandparent that can point him to the One who lives. Praise His Holy Name! emoticon
