Our first grandchild was born June 21 in Starkville, Mississippi.
R.J. (Robert Jonathan) weighed in at 6 pounds and 14 ounces and is 19.5 inches long. It was a very blessed moment for Sharon and I to be present for his welcome to this world. Holding our newborn grand child ( I like the sound of that word) I am reminded of the miracle of birth and how great is our God in giving us the wonderful gift of our children and grandchildren.
The songwriter expresses it well: How sweet to hold a newborn baby and feel the pride and joy He gives; but greater still the calm assurance, this child can face uncertain days because He lives.
In the coming weeks, I am looking forward to spending some quality time with this newest member of our family. We hope to introduce him to our Haddock church family sometime in August.
