Good morning everyone! For those of you who do not know by now, we had another little angel born into this world on Saturday, November 26 at 1:37 p.m.–Gabriel Robert. He was over 7 lbs. and 20 inches long. We now have another grandson to hold, love, and adore just as much as Gryphon!
We are thankful that the delivery went well and mom is doing fine. They are both home now and enjoying adjusting to being a family of four. Gryphon has been a sweetheart. He “secretly” has been placing the little fabric bear that he was given at the hospital in Gabriel’s bed when he is sleeping and lets mommy or daddy know when the baby is crying. When I have been at the house this week, I even noticed a smile from him as he looks lovingly at his new brother. Although naps and general routines for Gryphon and the family have been altered, it will just take a little time for everyone to get back to their normal schedules. This week daddy is home and Gryphon is absolutely enjoying a lot of time with him as well.
Children are truly a blessing from God and many mothers/fathers and grandmothers/grandfathers can attest to that fact. As Gryphon and Gabriel grow up together (two years apart), they will bond as brothers and learn many lessons in sharing and caring for one another as well. I look forward to seeing their interaction as time goes by.
As one of the grandmothers, I am truly feeling blessed today and thankful that I have the opportunity to live close by and enjoy both grandsons at this time in their lives and just wanted to share this eventful moment with all of you.
I trust all of you had a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends and are looking forward to celebrating the birth of our King as well this month.
This Sunday at church, Roger will be speaking on John the Baptist, and next Sunday I will be speaking about Mary’s journey and her visit from the Angel Gabriel to tell her the news that she will carry the Son of God–Jesus Christ. We are looking forward to being given these opportunities and sharing these two Bible character stories with the congregation as well.
I am also looking forward to sharing with you on future posts about what God is doing in and through our lives, and may you feel blessed and encouraged by what God can do and is doing in your lives today.
