This Miracle is Growing
Kathy and I celebrated the 4th of July and our 32nd wedding anniversary with David and Holly and our brand new grand baby girl this weekend at their home in Roswell, GA.
Actually we haven't actually met our new grand baby yet but I did get to pat her several times. We are planning on her arrival in early November. And there was strong evidence little baby Goddard is getting ready for the big day.
I couldn't help but notice the expansion in her mommy's tummy.
It seems like just yesterday this new grand baby's dad was growing in his mom's tummy. Back then we didn't know if it was a boy or a girl until the day the baby arrived. I can vividly remember the night of Dec 6, 1979 walking out in the waiting room and announcing, "It's a boy!" to family and friends who had gathered there.
These days we know that kind of stuff way ahead of time. And yes they already have a beautiful name picked out.
But the neat thing is this beautiful little baby girl growing in her mommy's tummy doesn't know it yet but she already has a Papa picked out.
That would be me.
And that would also be me smiling as I type this.
Actually there are at least three other grandparents who are rightfully making the same claim. And I can promise you they are smiling just as much as me.
I don't think I have ever seen a couple who is more ready to become parents than David and Holly.
They fully realize they are about to receive a true gift from God.
There are some things man can explain but I can tell you no man has figured out how a sperm and an egg can join together to produce another life. If there was ever a God thing, this is it.
In case you are wondering, it's called a miracle. And this miracle is growing.
In fact this miracle is getting bigger and bigger every day.
