Here I am, becoming a grandfather. What a grand thing it is.
“The fruit of the womb is his reward.” What a thought. A reward that goes far beyond the couple that produced the fruit.
After all, in the last chapter of Ruth, people don’t say, “Ruth has a baby.” They say, “Now Naomi has a baby!” The whole clan is enriched, and who gets the biggest congratulations? The grandparent!
I am being initiated into a noble club.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow.
