What A Life!
So, want to know why I haven't been posting so much on our blog?? My life is so busy I just can't squeeze it all in. Something had to go and so I took a break from blogging. Here is just a few things that have been consuming me lately.
I am a grandma again!! Cana Naomi Pearce was born on June 12, 2009. I had the awesome privilege of watching her come into to this world and praying over her as she entered. Melissa & Randy & Vaden are doing great and GOD IS SO GOOD!!
"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
Jonathan graduated from the Wake Forest Fire Academy and is now a FIRE FIGHTER!
"Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like the arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them." Psalm 127
He asked me to pin his badge on at the graduation ceremony. What a privilege and honor! Jerry and I are SO PROUD OF HIM!
Grama is so PROUD of him too. My brother Chuck and nephew Gary who are also fire fighters drove up from Florida to surprise him by attending his graduation. When his name was called to go to the stage for his badge presentation, they both stood up (in their uniforms) and he saw them for the first time. His face said it all...he was shocked to see them there! Three Firefighters in our family now!
