Spring Break 2010 For Case
I have such fond memories of Case as an infant. He is the only one of my grandchildren I had the privilege to keep for a period of time on a regular basis. While his mom worked part-time, Case went to our church's daycare. When I had Bible study or other meetings at the church, or just when I took the notion, I would pick him up at daycare and take him home with me. I did this every chance I got. He spent many afternoons with his Kay-Kay. He doesn't remember those days, but I sure do! He was such a good baby and such fun to be with.
Case has grown into a handsome young man of over 6 feet tall and still growing. He is a very conscientious student, but what I appreciate the most about him, is the fact that he has a mind of his own. He is not as easily influenced by his peers as many teenagers are. He became a Christian at a young age and enjoys being active in his youth group at church.
Case took part of his Spring Break to help the people of Bayou DuLarge Baptist Church. He stacked lumber at the saw mill one day and other days, helped in the building of a home for church members
who experienced a loss during a hurricane. When Eddie brought Case home that Sunday night, he asked him if he would like to go again. He said, "I would go again right now if I weren't so tired."
Case will always remember his Spring Break of 2010 and so will his grandfather. What a blessing grandchildren are! Our children and grandchildren are worth the investment we make in their lives.
"Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure and right." (Proverbs 20:11)
"Children's children (Kaylee, Kam, Case, and Josh) are a crown to the aged . . . . . " (Proverbs 17:6a) Well, I don't consider myself "aged" yet, but we are their thankful, and blessed grandparents.
Eddie said I would have been so proud of Case, and I assure you I am. I have a special place in my heart for all of my grandchildren. They are each unique creations of our Maker.
