God’s Love Never Fails – A Loving Goal for The Sandwich Generation!

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 - No matter how bad the Sandwich Generation issues are or how much we have to scrunch

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!

For more encouraging Bible verses and lovely photos to encourage and inspire all of us in the never-aging Baby Boomers Generation, caring for elderly parents and granny nanny-ing and pappy-ing grandchildren, be sure to visit Internet Cafe Devotions for Word-Filled Wednesday.

  1. You’re right. It’s a small verse but fully loaded and those kittens are quite adorable. Blessings to you. Your grandchildren are so blessed to have grandparents committed to sowing God’s word into their hearts.


  2. Awwww, I love this picture! Did you take it? When love fails, we know then, that it is not really love. It is a good measuring stick for us to be guided by.

    I loved this WFW, thank you!

  3. I’m thankful that love never fails in a world when everything else can.

    Bless you!
