On Saturday morning November 13 at 6:37 am my first grandchild, Ella Marie Stallard, was born at Paoli Hospital in Paoli, PA.  I was already a grandfather from the day she was conceived.  I just had not seen her yet.  Naturally, I have included a picture.  Now I know from experience what I knew only intellectually — “children’s children are the crown of old men” (Proverbs 17:6)!  A flood of prayers has already gushed from my heart for Ella and her parents (my son David and his wife Brielle).  I hope the world she will live in (if the Lord tarries His coming) will be better than the way it appears to be headed.
