Take a Seat ...

... and grab a cuppa coffee!

It's been a busy week at the Mac home.  Father's Day ... graduation ... Patrick's birthday ... BBQ's ... and a visit from my newest grandson.  Newest AND oldest.  Let me introduce you to Junior.  As in Patrick Junior.  That's right!  He's my little grandson that has been haunting me for the past four years.  You see, he was born to his Korean mother ... and my oldest son.  Sadly .. they are not married .. but that's water under the bridge at this point.  I met him briefly nearly two years ago and he melted my heart.  Then I came home and pined away praying to God about the little fellow wondering if I'd ever be part of his life.  His story is one of complications that go way beyond his understanding so we will leave it at that.  I'm just happy to have him with me this week!  We've got lots of catching up to do, stories to read, games to play ... and trips to the park. This grandma needs a nap!

Dear Mrs. Mac,
You do know how to bring tears into an old lady's eye.
I thank God for this sunshine story, and the wonderful grandson on his father's arm.
This week has been a "God answers prayers week"to me.
May the Patricks be forever blessed and kept under God's wings, both of them.
They are lucky to have you as the caring, loving Mom/ Grandmom.

Patrick Jr. is a beautiful boy.
Just love him and show him who
Jesus is in that love. That's
all you can do. Your son will
come around one day. Try not
to worry. I know it's hard.
Hardly anyone in my very large
family knows Jesus. I just keep
interceding and loving.

I love his precious smile!!!! He is adorable, and looks like a perfect play pal for Jacob!
God must have created you with an extra special capicity to pray and love...you have handled the life he gave you so beautifully, showing Gods grace in every instance. Now...He has rewarded you with yet another grandson! Precious gifts each one.
Is he going to be called Jr.? Hal's a jr, and I can't say it fits a grown man..LOL!

He is absolutely adorable!!! I cannot imagine the joy in your heart to have him there and get to spend time with him. I am so excited and so very thankful the Lord has shown you favor and brought him to you for this time. It looks like he and his Daddy are a great team! Thank you for sharing this blessing with us!
