My daughter Sarah snapped this picture of my granddaughter Violet the other day as she was playing with her rubber ducky and watching a little bit of tv. Being a mother to Elizabeth and Sarah continues to be one of the greatest joys of my life; but I have to admit, there is something incredibly special about having a granddaughter. Not only is it a  joy to watch God's incredible creation of Violet Elizabeth grow, develop, learn, and relate to others, I also count it all joy to watch my daughter Sarah grow into motherhood with  all of its responsibility, sleepless nights, fun, satisfaction, and pure love and selflessness.

And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
(Mark 10:13-16 ESV)
