ABC Wednesday: R is for Granddad Rowland

I was privileged to grow up with Grandparents as well as my great-granddad. Granddad Rowland had 9 children and many grandchildren (and great-grandchildren) but he had the ability to make each one feel special.  I enjoyed “helping” granddad in his fix-it shop. Sometimes Granddad would take me along when he was the guest preacher at churches.  I enjoyed getting spend time with my Granddad.  Other posts about Granddad: ABC Wednesday: Q is for Quilt and Funny Preacher Stories.

  2. FoodieJenn: Thank you. My Granddad was a Godly man.

    Earthlingorgeous: I was blessed to have known 3 grandparents and 2 great-grandparents. Granddad was actually my great-granddad.

    Quinn: TY, Are you familiar with the song for FFB by Michael Card? That song reminds me of Granddad. Yes, I like that last candid shot.

  3. He was a very handsome man. You are very lucky you know him. I don’t remember my great grandparents. You all are a big, beautiful family. Excellent choise for “R”.
