Aren't You?



Did you know that my family has been baptist for at least 4 generations? The Bible mentions a Godly generation and I thank the Lord for my family. What a blessing to be raised with the truth and the continuity of the same faith and doctrine. I think it must be unsettling for children growing up not sure what they are and what they should beleive or why. I pray the Lord allows my family to contiue to be blessed in our "goodly" heritage . Even apart from the salvation of my soul, even apart from the rewards I anticipate in heaven, just having lived this life with this foundation would be blessing enough!!
One of my most favorite family momentos is a large framed foto of my great-grandfather. He was a Baptist preacher. As was his son. As was his son, my father. As is my husband. As is my son. As is my son-in-law. I wont even start into the nephews! And brother-in-laws!

You are truly blessed and your children to be surrounded by so many folks that love the Lord.
