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.

      Hi Dear Flourish,

      Yes, my son has blessed me and then some with the grands and now it's my daughter's turn ... boy or girl matters not, but healthy!

      Thank you so much for the beautiful comment, and it is easy to write something beautiful when it is all about such a beautiful little sweetheart.

      Have a great rest of the week!

      Hi ologsinquito,

      Thank you so much. He is a sweetie. I found out on Mother's Day that I am going to be a grandmother again as my daughter is pregnant. My son blessed me with three grandchildren and now one on the way for the first time by my daughter. They are truly blessings from above.

      Have a blessed rest of the week

      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

      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

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Thank you so much for your well wishes here.

      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

      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.

      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.

      Hello LadyFiddler,

      Amen dear one. He will always have angels encamped around him at all times, as I have asked our Lord to send them and form a special hedge of protection around him at all times. I do so appreciate your lovely comments here.

      You are such a lovely and kind person. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Dearest beloved one Amy,

      I receive your love back, as that agape love - the highest form of love is the greatest we can share with each other--- it is divine love. You are precious and more valuable than any rare gem on this planet in His eyes. That would be such a lovely and amazing poem, especially written by you. No need to dedicate it to me though. Just continue to allow your beautiful heart to share all the love that is overflowing from your heart here with all and around the world for all to read, and in doing so, we will all be so very blessed. God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Oh yeah he sure is a little sweet man already.

      May God bless him, keep him from all viruses and always provide things for him to eat and save his soul when he gets older.

      Shalom

      Dearest Faith, You comment to me has inspired a thought I've had forever about the purpose of each individual. I am going to write a poem about this idea and dedicate it to you. I can't promise when I will complete it, but it will be the next piece I write. Thank you for the beauty of your angelic kindness and loving accepting heart. I'm sending love your way, my beautiful friend.

      Hi Marlene,

      Thank you for the congrats dear one. He is named after his dad, Jeffrey, which means "Heavenly Peace," as I have written a poem to my son here about the day of his birth and the meaning of his name. Being the mother's dad is also a Jeff, they will call him Landon.

      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.

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Congratulations, Nannie. Your grandson is already loved by so many. Have the parents picked a name for him yet? I'm so excited for you. Just tickled to be remotely involved with this wonderful blessing you have shared with us.

      Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts dear one. You are an angel right here on this planet, and you have a great purpose for being here no doubt. I appreciate the congrats, as he is the sweetest little one ever. I am blessed beyond measure to have him in my life now, and to know you via HP, as well as all of us on HP are blessed by your beautiful heart and your outstanding poetry. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Oh, Faith, I am so happy to hear the good news. My daughter, Megan, weighed in at 8 lbs even. I've been thinking about you and that sweet baby boy since I found out he was soon to arrive. Congrats on the blessing of his safe arrival into the world and into the arms of the greatest grandma ever! He is one lucky angel.

      I wasn't for sure if he had arrived yet but I see that he is probably planned. You will have to make sure you do a hub on him, with pictures and your beautiful poetry. Almost here Faith:) God Bless my dear friend.

      Oh, wow! I had not noticed that the "d" was missing. Well, as we know, the "d" is silent anyway. I'll be thinking of you on Wednesday. That's the DOB (date of birth), right?

      Hello Marlene, I mean Grandma (with the "d" silent)

      I am so happy you have stopped by to share in my joy as well dear one. Another lovely grandmother here on HP. I know how very blessed your grands are to have you as their Grandma. That silent "d" reminds me of when I messed up my URL on this hub, and now I just say in lieu of the "d" missing in grandson, I will say it is silent. LOL

      I appreciate your kind words as always.

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hi Frank again,

      LOL, now it was not this little pumpkin, Lily, who commented back to you earlier, but my four year old granddaughter, Scarlett, with the shades on - don't know if you saw her before I switched the photos out. She is so dramatic already at the age of four. She just cracks me up. LOL

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      What a beautiful expression of love! Congratulations to you and to the new grandson who will be so lucky you are his Nanny...whether we have one or one hundred, each one is special and brings a new joy to our hearts (I have six and one on the way). You definitely need to keep this poem for him, it is one he can share with his grandchildren.

      Hi LadyFiddler,

      So glad you stopped by to share in my joy here this day. You are blessed to have a lot of great cousins no doubt! They really do add a lot of joy in one's life. Yes, distance is hard, but your new great cousin, I am sure, will know of your love, as you seem to have a lot of love inside to spread around.

      God bless In His Love, Faith Reaper

      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.
