Becoming a Grandmother Changes Everything!!

Saturday, March 29, 2008

Well -- it finally happened! After 42 years of marriage, my husband and I are finally going to become grandparents! We were on the Sea of Galilee on a recent trip to Israel when our daughter called to give us the wonderful news! The morning before she called my husband mentioned to our group on the bus that we were at the place where Jesus performed many miracles. He said that God is a God of miracles, and asked everyone, "do you have a miracle you are praying for today?" That night was when our daughter called!

Our daughter is 37 years old and she had almost given up hopes of ever having a baby since she has had health problems in that regard. About 6 months ago, my husband and I began praying specifically every day for this miracle to take place, and God answered our prayers!

The point of all of this is to not only share my fantastic news, but to mention that I now have another motive to lose weight -- I want to be here for my grandchild and see him or her mature in life.

    Oh, Norma, I have tears in my eyes as I read your news, and remember that our God is an awesome God! Thank you, Father, that you answer prayers, and still perform miracles! I'm so happy for you, and for your daughter, and pray that God would use this miracle to reach the hearts of many people around you!
