my grandaddy


This is a picture taken at my Nana and Grandaddy's house. Notice the nice spread on the buffet!
I posted this so that you could be excited and rejoice with me. My Grandaddy gave his life to the Lord this week. Mom led him to the Lord at their house. He is a gardener so this verse kept running through my mind. "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few." Matthew 9:37
He has "not been ready" for a long time. I am so glad mom saw that his heart was ripe for the harvest. When mom asked him if he thought he wanted to accept Christ as his Savior for his sins he stated... "yes, yes, I do." Salvation is refreshment for my soul.

Man! How thrilling! And what an encouragement to be reminded that God is still at work in people's life even after you think they are too "set in their ways". God is SO good, Kristy! Praise the Lord! and i'm so grateful that the Lord let your mom be the one to lead him, that will always be special to her!

That is awesome...what a priviledge for your mom to get to lead her dad to the Lord. Hope y'all are well and love keeping up with you through the blog!
