Why a new blog and why call it Larksong?

The birth of my first granddaughter, Samantha, urges me to leave the beautiful girls in my life encouraging words of how God has sung over my life. My best childhood friend was named Lark and she loved life. So of course, the lark  became my favorite bird. Larks begin their early day with song and are often heard singing in flight. I want my girls to believe that God is their Larksong and wings for this journey. 
William Wordsworth wrote in his poem, To a Sky-Lark

Lift me, guide me till I find
 With a soul as strong as a mountain river
That spot which seems so to thy mind! 

...pouring out praise to the Almighty Giver,
joy and jollity be with us both!
May my words sing praise...

Missing my Sam

My sweet Sam,
You are the joy of my life! My goodness, if you get any cuter, I think I'll burst! Your granddaddy and I had so much fun taking you to the beach and the zoo this week. We miss you so much already and can't wait until you are back in our arms!
