A GiGi's honor
Updated: Oct 7, 2020
It’s indescribable to watch your daughter hold her daughter. To know that your “baby” has her own baby and the circle of life continues. I marvel at being a part of something bigger than myself and knowing I get to play a supporting role in the lives of people I love with all my heart.
It’s an honor and privilege to be Emmie and Fiona’s Gigi. It’s the best job ever!
I want to cultivate a relationship with them with no strings attached. I want them to know I am a safe place to be themselves. I want them to know how much they are loved by their Creator. I want them to know they are never alone. I want them to know how much they are wanted and cherished. I want them to know that many forces will come against them, but they do not have to be afraid. Abba, Daddy, is with them. And He always finishes what He starts.
Oh yes, You shaped me first inside, then out; You formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank You, High God--You’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration---what a creation! You know me inside and out, You know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before You, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. Psalm 139:13-16 MSG
Father God, thank You for this season of joy and celebration! You are a Good Father! Help these little ones not to fall for the nonsense of formulas, programs, and advice; human inspired techniques to try to get what they want from You. Help these children to have an authentic, vibrant and freedom filled relationship with You as they navigate this life here on earth. Amen.
