I have to tell you, this Sandwich Generation grandmother is SO happy today! It's almost the end of July! I've seen "Christmas in July" blog posts, chatter about Halloween and Harvest items in the stores, have started to shop for cute new pumpkin and autumn leaves clipart, AND my grandchildren's school schedules are starting to show up. I am SO happy because all of that means that AUTUMN – my VERY FAVORITE SEASON, is getting closer. I'm actually hoping that, since summer started early and HOT, maybe, just maybe, AUTUMN will come early too!!! 🙂
Of course, with autumn and school getting closer, so is our Awana Bible Memory verses program for the grand children. Thus it's a good thing we're getting close to the end of our Love Is – 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 and 13 summer Bible memorization activities for grandparents and their grandchildren! Only a few more weeks to go and this week's is VERY short! 🙂
Love never fails.
1 Corinthains 13: 8a
How cute!!! But, while the photo of these scrunched little critters may be adorable, this is definitely one of those inspirational Bible verses that is VERY serious, VERY short and yet, VERY full!
Full of God's love for us that, truly, never fails! Full of the need for us to remember that – no matter how frustrated we may feel, how difficult the Sandwich Generation issues of life may be, or how scrunched we may feel – we need to rest in our Lord and ask HIM to fill US with a love that never fails. Full of the need to set that example for all our beloveds in our lives – especially those sweet little grandkids who are watching us! 🙂 NOT easy, yet SO worthwhile!
