|Stan holding baby Brooklyn|
Before Brooklyn was even conceived, I dreamed I had a little blue eyed, blond headed granddaughter. In my dream she was about two years old. It wasn't long after that the kids told me they were expecting and then when Brooklyn was born I knew this was my little dream come true.
Now, my sweet little first-in-a-long-line of GRAND kids is twelve!
Next year she'll be a teenager. . .and then we'll turn around and she'll be graduating. . .
and then. . .
Oh my, life just keeps moving along. . .
it doesn't slow down just because I am.
I am so thankful God gave us Brooklyn!
We could have lost her last year. Her appendix burst in July, but God was watching out for her.
I am so thankful!
It is my greatest desire that she will give her whole heart, soul, mind and strength to the service of the Lord.
I don't care if she's rich, or if she has a tan, or if her nails are manicured.
I don't care if she has the latest style in clothing or if she makes the highest grades.
I want her to grow into the full character of Christ.
I want her to have friendship and fellowship with Jesus.
I want her to live forever. . .and she's got the Holy Ghost to help her.
It's my desire that she would say, "Take this whole world, but give me Jesus!
I have decided to follow Him and I won't turn back."
