Welcome to the Family

Our first grandchild arrived yesterday!

While we waited for news yesterday morning, we pulled out a song that we sang at each of our children's baptisms:

Welcome to the Family
by Debby Kerner

Welcome to the family, we're glad that you have come
to share your life with us, as we grow in love, and
May we always be to you what God would have us be,
a family always there, to be strong and to lean on.

May we learn to love each other more with each new day
May words of love be on our lips in everything we say
May the Spirit melt our hearts and teach us how to pray,
that we might be, a true family.


That's our prayer... along with a huge praise for our sweetie-girl's safe arrival.

Congrats Sharon! Such a precious time. I'm not a grandmother, but looking at the two of my own, my heart melts. I can't imagine when I'm a grandmother.
