grandparents

As many of you know,  Annette and I recently became grandparents. It is amazing! From the day Colette was born and that first time we saw her, our lives changed. It was like being thrust back in time when each of my three kids were born. It feels the same now, but also very different. I remember feeling joy at the birth of my kids but I also felt the weight of the responsibility. In holding Colette that first time, all I felt was joy and amazement. I love the pictures that they send us and it's fun to watch Colette grow and change right before our eyes.

Being a grandpa has opened my eyes to a whole other side of how I believe our Heavenly Father looks at us. Through this experience I believe I see the tenderness of God, the delight we can give Him, and the anticipation of who we are becoming.
