Hey, I’ve been a grandfather (Da-Do) for a few years now and that never gets old, but today I became something different: the grandfather of a granddaughter! Whoo-hoo!
Granddaughter Kinley Lynn Wheeler arrived at 3:00 p.m. today, June 6, 2012. Thanks be to God, mother and daughter are doing great! And let me add that my daughter and I both predicted the exact time of her arrival to the very minute this morning.
This little girl – who already has me wrapped around her little finger! – weighed 6 lbs., 8 oz. at birth and is 19″ long. She’s got a goodly amount of black hair; not a lot, not a little. And I’m told that “Kinley” means “fair-headed hero” (or “fair-headed heroine”). We’ll see if her hair lightens up as she grows up, but I can tell you right now she’s already a hero in my heart!
Pray with me:
Heavenly Father, thank, thank you, thank you! May this little one you’ve entrusted us with rise up to be a devoted disciple of your Son Jesus, full of, and fruitful in, your Spirit, for life! May you ever be the hero of her heart and life in every way, all of her days. Amen. And amen.
