Joy, Joy, Joy


A sweet little boy


Will arrive in this world


This very next week


My heart skips a beat


As I can hardly wait to meet


This precious little


Perfect gift from above


Moonlight Beethoven for Baby

A Love Letter to My Grandson to Be



Dear little precious one,


With much joy and anticipation


I await your arrival


As my heart overflows with joy


I cannot believe God is blessing


Me with you, already so cherished


So loved forever you'll be


Each day of my life,


I will celebrate the joy of you


I am so blessed


I just wanted you to know


While watching you grow


I will cherish each moment


I have yet to spend with you


I will gently hold you and rock you


And keep you close to my heart


While singing sweet little lullabies


And whispering sweet truths into your tiny ears


You will know just how amazing you are


And I will kiss all your boo boos so tenderly


No limits will there be to the amount of hugs


I will cry tears with you along the way


Please know that I will pray for you all the days of my life


And rejoice with you in the everyday little joys


I will fight to no end to protect you from harm


But I know, all I really need to do is allow you to lay in His sweet arms


And I shall thank Him for you the rest of my days


For setting my heart fully ablaze

I Hope You Understand



In my commenting I may be remiss


And I hope all will understand while I am away


enjoying my new found bliss

In God's Word, He tell us in James 1:17:


"Every good and perfect gift is from above..."


God makes no mistakes. If you are here, then you are meant to be here. It is no accident, as He makes no mistakes. No matter how you arrived into this world, you matter and you are here for a specific purpose.


My grandchildren call me "Nanny" or "Nana." Whatever they call you from the beginning is what you will be called from then on out. And that is just fine with me, as long as they love me is all that matters.

      How sweet for you. I have four grandchildren. They call me gram since that was the way my youngest could pronounce grandma and it stuck.

      I am sharing this sweetness.

I am so thrilled for you too, as I know how much love they can bring into one's life. There is just something so very wonderful about the grands.

Oh, how beautiful they are indeed. Thank you for your lovely comments here dear one.

      I will be popping in here and there and try to continue to write something, so my score won't drop into the abyss, but that will be okay for now if it does.

      So glad you have also come to share in my joy, and I can tell you know that special joy yourself with your grandchildren. Actually, I have two beautiful granddaughters already (2 and 4 years old - Lily and Scarlett, about whom I have written here in haiku poetry), but this new little precious one will be our first grandson. Being a grandmother is one of the most rewarding gifts one can ever receive. One of my friends had given me this sweet little pillow to insert a photo inside and it has "When a child is born, so is a Grandmother." I just love it, as it is so very true. Thank you so much for the delightful comments to add to his hub. You are very young to be a grandmother, just like Genna and Sunnie Day, who is blessed with five grandchildren and one on the way too!!!

      Hello again Kathy,

      Thank you so much. NO WAY right back at you dear one. There are so many lovely grandmothers here on HP, that one would have never thought as being a grandmother-----i.e., Sunnie Day with her five plus one on the way and now Genna's soon to be first too (I may have already said this here earlier). I share in my excitement with them as well.

      Hi Mister Frank,

      My Nannie told me to tell you that she is busy right now making me and my little sister pancakes in the kitchen, but that she will be back next week. My Nannie takes a whole lot of pictures, and she always has to show everybody. I know when I was born, she took a lot of pictures of me and my little sister and showed them to the whole world. Hmmm, I guess I will have to get used to this new brother, but I may have to do something to get my Nannie's attention if she pays him too much attention. I think it will be okay because she always tells me I am the best little girl in the whole world. I heard her telling my little sister that too, but I think she was only telling her that to make her feel better. I better go now because my Nannie is calling me to eat pancakes. Yum Yum!!! My Nannie said to tell you God bless you.

      You are such a dear to share in my joy here once again. I will switch out the photos from time to time here when I am able. So busy right now with his two older sisters, Lily and Scarlett (2 & 4), as they are up here for a week or so with us.

      Hi LaThing,

      So glad you have stopped by to share in my joy too. I appreciate the kind comments. Well, as far as his name, Jeffrey, his dad is named Jeffrey, as well as his mother's dad, and so they will just call him Landon, so as to not be so confusing with all the Jeffs around. Jeffrey means "Heavenly Peace." I have written of the birth of my son and daughter on the day of their births to include the meanings of their names.

      Hi Grandma Mary,

      Thank you so much for returning to see my perfect little precious gift from above. Oh what lovely words here you have shared dear one. Yes, there has never been anyone like him before and there never will be again! Amen on that one. It is always such a blessing when you come to visit, and I thank you for the blessing that he may always believe in love, faith, and hope . . . God bless you. You are a treasure. All of us grandmothers are so blessed to have these little ones in our lives, and I am so happy for all of the grandparents here on HP and the soon to be grandparents too---as they will soon know the joy we speak of ---none to compare!

      In His Love, Faith Reaper

      This is a beautiful reflection of your heart and the depth of loyalty you have to the Lord and to your grandchild. Your little one is blessed indeed to call you nannie.

      I have 11 grandchildren, 9 girls and 2 boys. I can truly say my cup runneth over. I delight in each one and they all know it. My heart radiates love for them and I treasure the times we spend together.

      A grandchild is a gift to be treasured and protected. As we share our devotion to the Savior and our love for them we fill their little love cup.

      Your little guy has lots of dark hair just as my son did .. he's really a cutie! I will be looking forward to hearing about your new little bundle of joy.

      Hugs!

      Hi suzette,

      Great to see you stopping by to share in my new found joy. I appreciate your very kind words dear one. I am the one who is so very blessed.

      I am so sorry for the late comment, but I just got in from work and I did stop by to visit with my new precious grandson and two granddaughters before heading home. Such a joy in this life! It is 9:05 p.m., here in sweet home Alabama.

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hi Dearest Sister in Christ Mekenzie,

      So lovely to have you stop by as always! I really enjoy when you visit, as you are such a kind and loving person, and your heart always shines through in all of your commenting and writing. You make all feel so special.

      Wow, you are truly blessed beyond measure - 11 grandchildren (9 girls and 2 boys)!!! What an incredible blessing to say the least. There are so many lovely grandmothers here on HP, as I have found out, just through this hub. Such a nice thought.

      Yes, each one is so very special and unique as God created us so that there is no other one ever like us, which Mary had commented earlier in her lovely comments as well.

      All of us grandmothers or grandparents know of that amazing love that feels our hearts to overflow.

      Yes, what a wonderful truth you have spoken here of our devotion to the Savior, which adds so much to this hub and glorifies Him!

      My son had a head full of curly dark hair too, and now his son has lots of dark hair, but as you can see not curly. He is such a cutie in my eyes too!

      God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Yes, the screeching brakes for sure! lol I do need to update his sweet little photo here. Well, he smiles all of the time and is so in love with his oldest sister who sings to him all day long. He is already walking and such a very big boy! He sure is a sweetie. I believe I placed a photo or two of him on my Easter hub of my One year anniversary on HP, as it just happened to fall on Easter, which was so neat, I thought. Yes, like father, like son. My son said it did feel good to not be as out-numbered in a house full of females! lol Wait until they become teenagers ... hehehe

      Hi Marlene,

      So good to see you here, wonder woman! We just celebrated his first birthday the other weekend ...where has the year gone? I updated some photos in my sweetest little five red words hub I have highlighted where he is sitting on my son's shoulder at the park where he had his party.

      Thank you for your lovely comments. You should see his eyes now, for they are so huge and bluer than blue! He is a sweetie. We had him up the other weekend all by himself and he had the best time, as did we. He smiled the whole time all weekend. He is a joy for sure. Guess I should have updated the photos here instead of on that other hub LOL but then the title would not match and all would think, wow, what a big baby : ) for arriving next Wednesday.

      Looks like you are all set to have a fun time this Halloween. I do hope you are back to start writing again sweetie. You are beautiful.

      I appreciate the votes up

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper
