25 Nov Thanksgiving
Ok this is an easy topic this year. My Grandson was born a few days ago. And even though I heard stories how amazing it is from grandfathers before me, I was not prepared. Grady Cole Abbott was born early on Saturday morning and on Sunday morning we began the 640 mile trip to meet the little 7lb 9 oz guy. Grammy, Angie held him first, of course, then it was my turn. I can’t describe the love that welled up inside of me, but I was keenly aware in that instant that I would l have driven both ways, to have just five minutes with him. I have never experienced love so powerful for someone who is incapable of returning that love. I would die for him and sacrifice to give him a greater future. I know what Agape love is, but now I have experienced its power in a greater degree. Yet it Is just a thimble full of love that God must have for us. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son.” Thank you God Almighty for a healthy grandson and for your great love for all of us.
