Frances Mary Grant Chamberlain (1852), my paternal great-grandmother.
My husband is an avid and long-time fan of the British science fiction series, Dr. Who. If you are familiar you know every two years or so “the doctor” regenerates and there is a big explosion of lights and drama and, bam, a new doctor comes forth! The old doctor dies, I suppose, or goes to Planet Whovian with the other past doctors! We are serious Whovians; however, I’m not near the fan hubs is!
Isn’t regeneration an interesting concept!
Everything to me can be interpreted spiritually – now that can drive some folks crazy but I find it quite interesting and perceptive.
God is a Regenerator – now, we know He is The Creator but He continues regenerating.
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob…
Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah.
Rahab, Boaz, Obed…
David, Solomon, Joseph…
My sister and I have been working feverishly on a family memoir for our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren – so regeneration is on my mind. We’ve named the book, Family Secrets and Sacraments. It’s a story of our regeneration!
William Charles, Harold Pinnock, Harold Charles…
Delia, Margaret, Teresa…
Then, Peggy and I!
Our story is woven with sacred thread. Our heritage is rich and bold.
Now, we leave a legacy to those behind us and it is a legacy of deep, abiding faith in the TRUTH and HOPE of the redeeming love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It causes me to pause and consider every single thing I do. Every single word I speak. Every single sentence I write.
Because it matters to the regenerated!
How about you? What are you leaving to the regenerated?
