Go, Granny, Go, Granny, Go Granny Go!

Three grandchildren and counting! Number four to come in February. I'm lovin' this grandma gig. The Bangalore Babes tell us Daniel looks like Grandpa Chuck, so he must look like his precious Mommy, too. And even has the red hair like Rebekah!

What Does a Grandma Do?

What does a Grandma do when her new grandbaby lives all the way across the world in India? She goes out, buys a balloon, ties it to her grocery cart, and tells everyone she sees about her grandson! Then she comes home, grabs Grandpa, and together they take a picture of themselves with the balloon. Then, she goes outside, ties the balloon to the mailbox, so that everyone in the neighborhood can celebrate the blessing! Then she comes inside, and maybe, just maybe, sets the table for a birthday party and videos the celebration to send to the new parents and grandchildren.

A Baby Boy is Born!


After 17 hours of labor, Rachel delivered our first grandson, Jonathan Daniel, on October 16. Daniel, as he will be called, weighed in at 3.4 kg, a little over 7 pounds and has light red hair. Daddy says he looks like Grandpa Chuck! Daniel joins two-year old sister, Rebekah, who just celebrated her birthday October 3. Congratulations to the Waldock household! We're praying for you.

The Relentless Lover

Ladies, join us at Lakeside Baptist Church, October 22, at 6:45 p.m. in the conference room for the Song of Solomon study. No, this book isn't just about marital intimacy. It's about God's covenant love relationship with His people, Israel. It's about Christ's love for His Bride, the Church. Come and experience the sacred romance with the Creator of the universe. Be loved, love Him back, then turn around and love others. We will be crafting an agape banner. Also each week, participants will receive an agape surprise! Bring your Bible, journal, and a friend. If your love needs a little refreshing this fall, join us at Lakeside Baptist. No cost.

JOHNSON COUNTY RESIDENT MAY SUE

One might think it the least likely place on planet Earth for such a thing to happen. But it has!

A resident of my little, Bible-belt hometown of Mountain City, Tennessee is suing the county for having the Ten Commandments posted in the courthouse. This is a growing phenomenon across the country, and even more alarming when small towns are affected.

Would you join with me in prayer that God would change this man's heart? It's been my experience that folks like this have been hurt in some way, perhaps by a church, in the past. They need our prayers, not our criticism.

Pray also that American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow, who litigates Christian liberty cases would rise to the occasion.
