This is a great day! Eleven years ago, early in the morning, I experienced for the first time that wonderful feeling of holding your first grand-baby!
When my daughter Eva-Marie went to be with the Lord she left a big hole in my heart. When David came, I literally felt how that hole was closed. This boy is my favorite in all the world. I love him to pieces!
I pray that David will be a champion in the Kingdom of God. I pray that he will have a shepherd’s heart as David in the Bible, that he will be tenacious and committed to the Lord as Daniel, that he will be humble as Moses, that he will have the courage of Joshua… the list could go on and on… but first and foremost, I pray that he will be like Jesus. There is no greater honor than to be like Him. May David always have his eyes fixed on Jesus!
God had a surprise for us! The same day, in another hospital, a little girl was born. She was to become David’s twin sister! So, today I also celebrate this cute little girl… she is slightly bigger now!
The first time I held Lana I didn’t know she was to become my grandchild. But I have held her many, many times since. And I have given her many “kille-kills.” You have to know Swedish to interpret that. Lana knows what it is. (She love to be tickled! But not any kind of tickles.)
I pray that Lana will be a woman of God, that she will love Jesus above everything else in her life, that she will be a good wife and mother when that day comes, and that years from now, in eternity, we will continue the love and friendship we started on earth. I love you, Lana girl!
So, my dear Twins, Happy Birthday! You’re celebrating one more year of life. I’m celebrating the big, great exciting thing of being a grandmother!
May we all have many more!
