Moments in time

I used to think that "older" people were crazy when they would remark how time flies so quickly. Well, I guess I must be one of those "older" people now! It amazes me how quickly time seems to fly and the years are gone before we know it. The moments of joy mixed with sadness all flow together to make up this beautiful tapestry of our lives.

When I awoke this morning and looked at the date my thoughts turned to six months ago.  We were anxiously awaiting the birth of our first grandson.  The anticipation grew as we waited for Nathan to come tell us about this newest addition to our family, and our joy overflowed as we heard the news.  Nothing compared to the first moments as we held him in our arms and our hearts filled with a new love we had never before experienced.
I chose a scripture to pray for and over Cooper at his birth. It is a scripture that I continue to pray for him as I watch him grow and anticipate the days ahead as I pray that God will lead and protect his little life.

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues
 through all generations. (Psalm 100:5 NIV)
Next week we will celebrate 92 years with my precious Nannie and the sweet moments  with my grandparents are memories I will always cherish.  I pray we can be half the grandparents to our grandchildren as mine were to me. 
Each day is a gift, and as we open the gifts I give God the glory for blessing us far more than we will ever deserve!
