Hard to believe a full year has passed and both “Wellspring of Life” and Rielyn Jolene are two years old!
What a year this has been! Wayne and I and our married children have lived in “Transition City” these past twelve months. And right under our noses (though 2,400 miles is too far away for being ‘under our noses’) our granddaughter was transitioning from babyhood to toddler month by month.
Look at her now! She’s grown so much and as her mom likes to say, is “sweet and sassy!” She’s as loveable as they come and smart as a cookie, too. Not much gets past her! And I love her long curls…
I published my first blog post the evening of Rielyn’s birth in 2010 and dedicated the “Wellspring of Life” blog to her. It is only appropriate for this writing grandma to mark the occasion with a special edition of “Wellspring” and Year 1 and 2 photos of this precious little “wellspring” of joy. She is a happy girl!
Perhaps one day Rielyn will be a young woman holding her grandmother’s published works in her hands. Or, those works may be a homemade print job, three-hole punched and inserted in plastic sleeves in a binder. Either way, I pray that the writing I do in these young years of her life will in later years always point her to Jesus, encourage her heart, and inspire her to live the beautiful story of God’s great love in all the pages and chapters of her life. My heart desires that no less for big brother Cohen, too…our first grandchild, our grandson. They are God’s beloveds and His beloved gifts to our families and generations.
So with contentment and gratitude for another year of blessing, I wish you again a “Happy second anniversary of “Wellspring of Life,” Jesus!” Let the river flow and keep flowing. And I ask that wherever the water reaches You will be pleased to bring forth a great harvest, including my entire household.
A Scribe for His glory,
