Just over nine months ago I received a new title...grandma! Let me tell you it was love at first sight, actually I am pretty sure I was in love before that first peek. We prayed for that little girl every day during the pregnancy. When you pray for someone you begin to care. We didn't know who exactly we were praying for, no idea if it was a boy or a girl, no idea what the name would be. We didn't care, this little baby was special and we were in love. Now we get the privilege of praying for her by name and we are honored to pray for her daily...she is our crown. And we eagerly anticipate the day we have more crowns to pray for. (no pressure kids!)
Grandchildren are a crown of the aged...
My paraphrase of that verse goes more like this...
Grandchildren are a crown of the middle aged...
So, I want to dare you to do something. I dare you to look at these pictures and not smile. This little beauty is Ellie... our first crown!
