Being a Grandmother

We returned to Israel in July of 2007 after living in the United States for ten years. We had previously lived in Israel >fr 1979-1997. My husband and I had met in Israel in 1979 and both of our children were born in Israel.

One of our main reasons for returning to Israel is that our daughter moved back here in the fall of 2004 to go to HebrewUniversity. Although she lived in the States from the age of 13-20, she still felt that Israel was her home.  She met a young man whom she had known in her formative years here.  They got married in Jerusalem in June 2006.  Both families were thrilled and it was a beautiful Messianic Jewish wedding and a testimony of God’s faithfulness.  My son-in-law’s parents had met in Israel in the late seventies as my husband and I had. Our children are second generation Messianic Jews living in the land of Israel.

On August 27th, 2007, our daughter gave birth to our first grandchild, a precious little girl, in Hadassah Mt. Scopus hospital, the same hospital her mother  was born in 22 years earlier. I was able to be with my daughter and son-in-law during the whole birth and it was a wonderful and awesome experience. Being a grandmother is one of God’s many blessings and I am so thankful to be here to enjoy my children and children’s children.  This blessing brings to mind the end of  Psalm 128,  “And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. Indeed, may you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel.”  Amen!
