Our son’s wedding and God’s grace

Craig Denison and Rachel Chapman engagement photo (Credit: Denison Family)I remember the day as though it were last week—the hospital room, the doctor, the nurses, our excitement.  On that morning in 1988, our second son was born.

Actually, he was God’s child long before he was ours.  Before the Creator of the universe made the first man, he knew he would one day make Craig Wayne Denison.  David could say of himself and our son, “Your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:16).  Before I met Janet in college (she walked into sophomore English smiling, a moment I’ll never forget!), our Lord knew we would marry and that we would be parents to two sons.  And he knew they would be his greatest gifts to us.
