The Fruit of the Womb is His Reward

Psalm 103:17
But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, 
and his righteousness to children's children,

Psalm 128:6
May you see your children's children! 
Peace be upon Israel!

Proverbs 13:22 
A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, 
but the sinner's wealth is laid up for the righteous.

Our children are having more children.  I can't tell you how blessed this makes me.  All I can say is that when our grandson Wesley was born in the wee hours of this morning, my heart was filled with joy and thanksgiving.  

God's steadfast love is upon ME, and upon my children, and my children's children.  I have been showered with the privilege of not only seeing my grandchildren, but investing time in their lives.  God has given me days of cuddling, of teaching, of admonishing, of training this new generation.  I have been able to see them grow, not only in stature, but in knowledge of this world and its Creator.  

A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children.  I pray that the inheritance our grandchildren receive from us is one of wisdom and knowledge.  I pray that their precious eyes will be opened to the truth that God made them, that He formed them in the secret place of their mother's womb, and that they ought to be grateful.  I pray that they will look up and see not just stars, but stars put there as a feast for their eyes by a God who loves them with a steadfast love.

Welcome to the World, Wesley Scott.  Granny loves you.


  1. He is SOOOOOO cute!! Looks kinda like Stewie. And I LOVE all that hair.

    Can't wait to see him this afternoon!

  2. Congratulations Granny! He is beautiful.

  3. What an amazingly cute little guy! My husband and I are eagerly awaiting the birth of our child, as the due date is next week. We can't wait to see what he/she looks like!

  4. Be prepared to fall madly in love in the blink of an eye! Is this your first?
