My Soldier Boy

My Boy Soldier  Makes My Day!!

Conor was a child six weeks ago,
 last night he came home a young man.
He talks with such maturity and dedication,
he took my breath away.
He showed me his Regimental Bible
with pride and humilty.
This boy was not brought up with
 any formal religious influence.
If a bible or prayer book or
anything religious were given or discussed
he would not have been interested. 
I hope this is a little acorn from which
a strong oak tree grows. 
I hope he gains a faith in God that will
strengthen him
in the years to come.

My grandchildren bring me such JOY,
this weeked the JOY is overflowing.

Sounds to me like Grandma planted a seed. You're a good Grandma Sheilagh and you have every reason to be proud!

You two look like you love each other very much. Absolutely glowing with it. A seed planted is a seed that will grow eventually. How very wonderful!
