A Letter to Emma

My dearest Emma,

Two days ago you brought tremendous joy with you as you arrived into this world.  You have especially caused the hearts of your mother and father to overflow.  They love you so.  As your grandfather, I am looking forward to seeing you and holding you.

This was said of Jesus when he was a child:

And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man. (Luke 2:52 ESV)

I pray that you will be like Jesus.  That your stature will increase from your original 6 pounds and 18.5 inches in a healthy fashion.  That you will learn how to live wisely.  Above all – that you find favor with God.  That you will love the Lord with all of your being.

Love,

Your Grandfather Frank
