A trip to the slow lane

After church on Friday, we headed off to spend a night with Dave's grandfather, about 4 hours away. It was great to see him, and for him to meet F. The way they took to each other was just amazing; it was beautiful to watch. A great-grandchild must be a very special thing to experience.

As maths would tell you, Grandad is getting on a bit. He's 92. He still lives at home, cooks for himself, feeds his birds. But he moves very slowly. Despite my occasional antsy feelings while we were there, it's been good for me to slow down for a while. To see his example of a life lived quietly and patiently to the glory of God.
