|Airplane Selfie On Our Way to Denver|
We were beyond excited to meet our grandtwins who were born June 6, 2014. What a journey it has been.
It really shouldn't have been surprising because after giving birth three times, I already knew how once you've made eye contact with your sweet baby, you are a goner for life.
Grandchildren are no different.
The moment I laid eyes on my sweet Baylee and Brody, life was never the same. There were two more to think about, pray for and love on. What a blessing!
I think God uses parenthood - and grand-parenthood - to teach us many many lessons. Learning life is not all about you, patience and sacrifice are just some of the bigger things we master on this parenting journey. But I think the biggest thing we learn is about love. The love that swells up inside us when we meet our flesh and blood is only a fraction of the love God has for His creation.
Even more than Baylee and Brody can count on my always loving them, every believer can count on the love God has for them - unwavering, immeasurable and infinite.
