The Most Exciting Day of Your Life

When her first grandchild was born she was ecstatic!  She exclaimed to her son-in-law, “Isn’t it wonderful?  Isn’t this the most exciting day of your life?”

His reply:  “No, I can’t say that it is.”                                                                                                 “Oh?”                                                                                                                                                   Then with a smile, “My wedding day was—but this is a close second.”

She stayed with the young family that first week to help out. The baby was six days old when she walked into the living room at 7 AM.  She would never forget the precious vision: Her eyes welled with tears as she observed her son-in-law sitting on the sofa holding his newborn on his lap.  He held his Bible as he read softly to his son.  The baby’s eyes were focused on his father as he listened quietly.

Newborn & Dad

That newborn is now a teenager.  He, along with his younger siblings, continues to grow feeding on God’s Word as his parents teach it and live it.

How that grandmother praises God for His love and faithfulness to her family.

  • All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace.            Isaiah 54:13

Are you a grandparent?  Can you identify?

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.

    Ahhh, how precious. Yes I can definitely identify! This child will truly be blessed if he continues throughout his life to hear God’s Word shared with him through his parents.

    Kathleen, we have a grandson almost two years old now, and a granddaughter almost 3. The granddaughter is just too much. That’s granddaddy’s baby. She will make you laugh all day. What an indescribable gift from God.
