Our First Grandson!

Landon James Lahn
Landon James Lahn

Things have been SO CRAZY these past few days that I’ve totally been neglecting the blog and I forgot to document the arrival of our third grand-child (our FIRST grandson)!!!

On Thursday, March 7th at 9:46am, we welcomed Landon James Lahn into the family in Brantford, ON (8lb 6oz & 21.25″) after nearly 34 hours of labour for poor Jess! He is most certainly a wonderful blessing and joy to see God’s creation once again!

Proud Grandparents

On the following Sunday ALL the grandkids (and their parents, and Nancy and I) got together for their first meet and greet at Daniel and Jess’s home. The pictures are SO confusing, as babies were being passed around all day long 🙂

Daniel and Jessica are doing amazing as parents now and Landon is growing beautifully over the last 10 days. We continue to pray for health and blessings on Landon, Jess and Daniel, and all our family as the days go by.

Reflections; Sadness and Joy

I’m sitting at home today with an ear infection, not really being able to hear well out of my left ear, hoping that the drops and antibiotics are really doing their thing.

In the meantime I’m reading through ‘stuff’ on the Internet. I’m reading about:

  • 50 Muslims killed in New Zealand by a crazed guy as a backlash against immigration
  • 120 Christians killed in Nigeria by radical Muslim terrorist factions like Boko Harum
  • Unborn babies being killed by doctors around the world
  • Back-biting and put-downs in comments on all sides

I’m sad.

And I see pictures and posts from my family:

  • An amazing new grandson
  • Two beautiful grand-daughters
  • Four wonderful kids and their equally wonderful spouses
  • A fantastic wife who’s right now out helping a refugee family from Zimbabwe find an affordable apartment

I’m joyful.

Joyful and sad at the same time.

I pray that the good of this world will start to overcome the evil. I know in the end it certainly will, and evil will be crushed, but I pray for our kids and grandkids and their kids, that this world will see The Light – The Son of the Living God – and that mankind will finally get their heads screwed on right.
