Welcome to the World

I haven't blogged in over a month in part because things have been quite busy around here. By far the best part of that busyness has been the arrival of Lisa Anne, Alice's and my first grandchild. Lisa is the daughter of our daughter Caroline and her husband Shane. What an incredible blessing from the Lord!

I am fulfilling my role as silly grandpa, holding Lisa whenever I get the opportunity. Right now she sleeps, nurses, and cries a lot - after all, that's what babies do. I can't wait for her to get just a little older and become more interactive. As a bonus, Caroline and Shane live less than five minutes from our house so I get to see Lisa almost every day. I thank the Lord for this wonderful gift! I'm reminded once again how gracious our God is. What a joy to see the next generation (not Star Trek).
