Bam! Clash! Crash! Thunder so loud you'd think it was IN the house instead of out! And loud enough to keep me up late in the night, even though my visiting grandson and senior mom slept right through the storm. And since he was well rested, we were BOTH up an hour early, with this Sandwich Generation granny nanny in dire need of some a.m. caffeine!
Then it was time to head for his great-grandma's therapy appointment. In spite of our "best laid plans," constant interruptions had us running late, teeth "on edge" and stressed up the ying yang! We made it, barely on time, then had to rush off again due to circumstances not in my control – the joys of the Sandwich Generation issues.
As I was driving, I turned on our Christian radio station and heard such sweetly encouraging words including:
My God is strong and mighty
My God is faithful
My hope is in the Lord
For He is able
Definitely words of inspiration for this busy, and occasionally somewhat harried, granny nanny.
Wondering who this was recorded by, I used one of my favorite iPhone apps, Shazam, to find out. Then I got a big smile on my face. "Shoulda known!" One of my fave Christian singers, Mark Shultz, singing All Things Possible.
It seems like every other time I hear great praise and worship music, full of words and Scriptures to lift my heart, it's Mark Schultz. I so appreciate him and his music ministry. It's definintely such a blessing for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, as is Spiritual Sunday.
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much and read each one. I also do my best to reply to them all but, as you can imagine, there are times (many times, lately :) ) when caregiving needs do not allow for that. Thank you for your patience and your sweet comments.
