Unique Creations

Today, I'm thinking about two of my grandchildren, who came to see me this past week. What a joy! My three sons and one daughter-in-love, Sara, also came. Once again, God impressed me with how uniquely He has made each one of us.
My sons, Chris - Cary - Andrew, are so different. You mothers out there - you know what I am talking about. Each one has unique abilities and talents. They actually complement each other very well. It's almost as if God said, "This family needs this and this and this in order to function." When you add our daughters and their husbands and my sons' wives - there is hardly anything we need, that we cannot do. Martha, my SS teacher, asked me, "Do you ever hire anything done?" I answered (truthfully), "Hardly ever."
My two youngest grandchildren, Kandace and Jackson, are just as unique. Jackson is your typical firstborn son - he never stops, is endlessly searching for something to get into, but quick to give loves and kisses - of course he is the older of the two. Kandace, is content to lie and play - quick to smile when you speak to her.
God is so creative. He so loves diversity. How wonderful that there is only one of me (my husband would amen that!) How wonderful that we were blessed with 6 totally unique children and their mates and 10 unique grandchildren. There is so much to appreciate and love!
