I love summer for many reasons. School is out, swimming pools open, flowers are blooming, vacations are starting, and the list could go on and on.
This year June was a very special month for our family. My oldest granddaughter Gabie and her husband Josh are going to have their first child. Now of course I love life and the birth of children, but this child will be my first great grandchild.
The wonder of God is how He has given us the ability to pass our lives on from generation to generation. I am amazed that I am going to be able to see the fourth generation of our family enter into our world.
God designed our lives to give life generation after generation. It was meant to be a time when we would rejoice and celebrate. I am already praying and believing for a wonderful pregnancy and the joy of meeting this precious gift face to face.
God intended for us to celebrate life and to look for ways to honor life.
I like to watch animal shows and each time you see animals give life and how they immediately take care for and provide for their young, I am reminded of how much God planned out creation. He planned it for humans, animals and even some plants to transfer themselves from who they are to another generation. And so our world all around us continues to flourish.
In a world where there is so much mistreatment of humans and animals, it is very special to be given the privilege to bring encouragement, love and faith to those God entrust to us.
Summer provides us with so many reasons to celebrate. Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
Be blessed and I hope you all feel loved.
