We welcomed little Gabriel Paton to the family on Saturday and look forward to welcoming another granddaughter this week!

While discussing a particular home we’d toured a couple weeks ago Brian and I remarked at the same time how we could envision our grandchildren running through the upstairs hallway (the layout was quite cool.) In that moment, I was reminded of my own grandmother’s house. It was, as described in one of my poems, a pocket-sized homeโ€”but there was nothing small about her love for our family. 

I understood her kind of love when I first laid eyes on Piper, and now Gabe, and soon, another sweet baby girl. 

Thank You, Lord.

But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children… Psalm 103:7
