Bookmarks: My great-grandkids

Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. Proverbs 17:6

After my son and one and only was born, I was in and out of the hospital. One operation led to another until my cervix was so butchered and scarred that ever getting pregnant again was impossible. Finally, at the age of twenty-seven, I had to have a hysterectomy. But that’s okay! My son had four children and his two oldest had four of their own. Well, almost. My granddaughter is due her fourth in September, three months from now. I thank God for his many blessings through my beautiful, growing family!

So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to describe myself to you, and these are the words jumping up and down in my heart: I'm just a simple human being living in a complicated, messed-up world. I speak my mind. I love hard. My feelings run deep. When push comes to shove, I stand my ground. Sometimes I push back. Sometimes I walk away. I've surfed the crashing waves of life that threatened to destroy me only to make me stronger. I bear the scars of emotional rape, sadness, and depression. I've walked the golden streets of churches and religion only to be disappointed time and time again. And as a result, it's taken me seventy-five years to get where I'm sitting today; a sinner saved by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. I fell at the cross. I repented of my sins, and Jesus saved and washed me clean. I still fall flat on my face. I still get dirty as a pig in a mudhole. And Jesus still picks me up, dries my tears, forgives me again and again, and continues walking close beside me. No one has ever loved me like that. And no one ever will.
