With the different Lent meditations for kids and grandkids on the last few Word-filled Wednesdays, I thought it would be good timing for a reminder of what WE should be doing in light of what JESUS did for US. Here's a fun way of sharing one of the encouraging Bible memory verses from Romans 12 for our children and grandchildren in our Sandwich Generation families. What a great opportunity to start teaching the concept of total surrender to God during this special season.
So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
Romans 12:1 Message
or as the NASB puts it:
Present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
Have a blessed Word-Filled Wednesday, full of uplifting Bible verses to encourage all of us in and out of the Sandwich Generation. 🙂
Valentine's Day is coming quickly. Red and pink hearts are everywhere – from our grandkids' schools to the stores we take our aging parents shopping at to the fun baby boomer sites I love to visit online. And NOW, there are some more at SandwichINK. 🙂
You know me, I'm big on fun ways to teach Bible memory verses to our children and grandchildren. Here's a couple of cute Valentines with Psalm 40:8,
I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart.
to help our grandgirls and grandboys understand that God wants us to give Him our hearts and ourselves!
Have a happy week with your Sandwich Generation family as you stay busy caring for your elderly parents and, perhaps, indulge in some fun and easy Valentine crafts and activities for grand kids and the seniors who love them. Speaking of which, Amydeanne at The160AcreWoods has a lovely February calendar page so you can even decorate your computer for the month with wonderful words of encouragement from the Word of God, making it also a wonderful way to set a lovely example for your grandchildren. 🙂
