At 9:27am Thursday, 16 July Sarah and I were blessed with the birth of our 2nd grandson, Rex Tyler Lynch. Both Erica (our daughter in law) and Rex are doing great. This is God’s true blessing.
Times like this make one pause and think about what is truly important in life. Here, as of this AM, is a brand new human being that God has entrusted to our care. My son, Lucas and his wife Erica now have a whole new set of extremely important responsibilities. In addition to raising their first son, JW (now 2 ½ years old) they now have Rex Tyler to raise and care for.
We are blessed in that we all live close together. Sarah and I are only 30 mins from Lucas and Erica. Our daughter, Susan and her husband David also live nearby. We as a Family can help whenever necessary.
I can’t think of anything more important than raising a child. Protecting him, nurturing him, teaching him. As the Bible tells us in Proverbs 22:6 :
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it.
I thank God for our new grandson, and I ask Him to give us the strength, courage and wisdom to do the right things in raising Rex Tyler.
