Can I Share a Personal Family Moment With You

Thank goodness for the internet, facebook and a wonderful daughter-in law.  With families so spread out through the country and world for that matter, the internet can be such a blessing.  Without it we wouldn't be able to enjoy such a precious moment in our families life like this.  Our first grandchild Zach was baptized last Sunday.   What a wonderful birthday gift to his daddy, who's birthday was August 23rd.  God is so good.  Glory be to God!

What a beautiful place to be baptized.  They live in upper NY and this spot looks so peaceful.
Look how eager our precious grandson is.  Our hearts are bursting with joy!!!
Here is our beautiful grandson Zach preparing to be baptized in the name of Jesus.
He came home from church camp and had made the decision that he was ready to take this step. 
I love this sweet picture.
Our beautiful granddaughter Ki'a is growing up to be such a beautiful young lady.  I just want to cry when I think of all the times I've missed being with them.
My daughter-in-law Christal is such a good mother, always working hard to enroll the kids in activities and spending so much making sure they get there.  I'm so proud of my son for providing for his family and putting them first.  You both make us so proud!!!

Thank you Christal for being so deligent in documenting these precious moments. 

Thank you God for being present in the lives of our family and blessing us beyond measure.

God bless all of you and your families.  Love....Tracy :)

  3. What a beautiful post to end the day, thank you so much for sharing! X

  4. Awww...what an awesome memory this will be!! I love the river scene...reminds me of Jesus being Baptized. I am so sorry you missed it. We missed my grandson being baptized this past June. We didn't have the money for the trip. They skypped it for us...it was awesome!!!

    I hope y'all will be safe from Irene. Praying for you!!!
