Sharing God’s Handiwork With Our Grandkids

by Kaye Swain

Hooray! My senior mom and I are starting to feel a bit more settled into our new abode. Today I was able to straighten up the garage enough to park my car in it – and I beat the massive rains and snow, assuming there are any this year. :) One of my sweet grandkids spent the night and helped me assemble the table since we FINALLY found the screws to put it together. And oh my, the gorgeous tree colors and breathtaking views that surround us are truly a blessing and delight as we drive around, get lost, get found, get lost, get found… :) I am so grateful to God for the beauty of His world and for grand GPS apps, I’m telling you!

And even though we’ve moved to a new state and a new home, there are some things that never change. Like reading the Word of God with grandkids before tucking them into bed when they spend the night. These treasured verses were a sweet treat last night.

God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever…As for me, the nearness of God is my good. I have made the Lord God my refuge that I may tell of all Thy works. Psalm 73:26,28

What’s a tradition for you and your grandkids that would cross state lines, if you did? We’d love to hear! And now, it’s off to find a garage remote control. With all the comings and goings of our Sandwich Generation family, those come in quite handy, don’t they?

Hi Kaye, This verse is beautiful and inspiring. Our grands are such a blessing. We live pretty far away from ours and we sure do miss them.

Thank you for your sweet comment today. I love this time of year and give thanks every day for the happiness we share with our family and friends in the season of Thanksgiving.

xo, Jeanne

Reading bedtime stories together would definitely cross state lines.

Glad to hear you’re getting better settled.

Lovely image and words.
