A couple of decades ago and more, this grandson was born into our family.
Of course I was quite taken with him!
More recently, but still “back in the day” when I had only five or six grandsons,
they would sometimes all be at my house, wrestling on the carpet.
This boy is the one in the middle, in camo.
His wrestling form improved from what you see here,
and in high school he was on the wrestling team. 🙂
We blinked a few times, and he had grown taller than his uncle.
Today, O wondrous day, he’s getting married! He’s grown in body and soul in the last several years, to prepare him for this…. But how can a grandma be prepared? I can only look on with thanks to God for His faithfulness, and pray for the bride and groom. (I never had found a proper blog-nickname for this boy, and now I think I’ll wait and figure out names for the two of them together.)
I have made a weekend trip to Georgia for the wedding. And I had to send word throughout Blogland of the news, and about my joy and amazement.
It’s a holy day, when a man is joined to a wife. May God wrap them in His love and grace.
