"10 ...I will give you more descendants than you can count."
Genesis 16:10 NLT
Today, this is how I am feeling...blessed beyond measure! I come from a family of 4...mom, dad, me, brother. And now, after marriage of 38 years, I have this huge, wonderful family...many descendants! We have 4 beautiful children who have given me 4 additional children in the form of their marriages. And to those marriages they have added a total of 10 amazing children. Our little family (my husband and me) has grown to a whopping total of 20! That is small in comparison to my hubby's family of more than 60 with parents, kids, grandkids, great-grandkids & now a great-great grandson! But to my little family of 4...20 is pretty cool! I love that God has blessed our family with this wonderful legacy. I pray that someday, should the Lord tarry, the future generations in our family will look into their family history and see the God-loving, God-fearing heritage they have.
It was the birth of my 10th grandbaby this week that has brought this feeling of wonder to me. We have anticipated his birth for more years than I can count. Thank you, Lord, for your amazing blessings and for the trust you have shown in our family by loaning your precious gifts to us.
Counting my blessings today,
