Philippians is full of wonderful advice for caregivers, like this passage from 4:5:-7.

Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 

Phil 4 - encouraging Bible verses and picture for the Sandwich Generation family

For that matter, it's also great advice to share with our grandkids! In fact, this Scripture is perfect for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, don't you think? These encouraging Bible verses are definitely ones I want to be meditating on today and throughout this month so I also used this cute country clipart and Scripture to make a wallpaper for my iPhone –

as well as a cute coloring page for our grandkids. I hope you enjoy these as well. ๐Ÿ™‚  

Enncouraging Bible verses with cute country snowman clipart to encourage our grandchildren

Life is full of things to cause us to be anxious and that's especially true for those of us in the Sandwich Generation. I'm so grateful that God has told us to pray about everything (and trust me, as my grandkids will tell you – I DO pray about EVERYTHING, whether it's a lost toy or a friend battling cancer or kids arguing with each other or dealing with computer woes or…), AND has promised us HIS PEACE – truly a blessed gift in the fruit of the Spirit for all of us! 

Spiritual Sundays are full of encouraging Bible verses and delightful praise and worship hymn songs and music

HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE TO SANDWICH GENERATION GRANDPARENTS EVERYWHERE! 

I love Happy Holidays cute country clipart like this New Years Eve clip art - its BEARY fun

Are you still looking for fun and easy activities for grandparents and grandchildren who may pop over for New Year's Eve? If a combination of easy and difficult, or should I say – challenging, jigsaw puzzles aren't enough, be sure to check out last year's post, New Year's Eve Plans with The Grandchildren. Then again, if you want something that is much easier, here's a favorite craft project of my grandchildren and it's one of those ultra easy crafts that's also inexpensive – definitely two favorite words for this Sandwich Generation granny nanny. Even our sweet seniors might enjoy one of these ideas.

Easily purchase and print out cute pictures of country clipart – here's examples of my some of my grandkids' favorites. They love the knight and princess clipart I bought:  

Sharing encouraging Bible verses with the neighborhood trick or treaters is one of the fun activities for grandparents and their grandchildren that we enjoy

 

Little boys will love the play that they are the royal knight with this fun clipart in your grandchildrens clip art puppet show

 

OR some fun superheros coloring pages 

OR how about some adorable animal pictures (hmmm – here's a fun idea within an idea – take pictures of your grandkids' Webkinz stuffed animals like my grandson's Panda and print them out  I'll have to do that as well. I know three little grandboys who would LOVE that idea! And some grandgirls as well! )

Love is always patient and kind - Love never fails - illustrated by this cute Panda - Webkinz Panda

If the pictures aren't in color, have your grandchildren color them. They can then cut the pictures out. Provide them with popsicle craft sticks and glue sticks and help them glue their pictures onto the craft sticks. When done, sit back and applaud the fun puppet show they will put on for you.

Another easy project is to have your grandchildren pick out cute snowman clipart, copy them onto one corner of a sheet of paper, and print them out. Then have the the grandkids fold them and write little notes, their Bible memory verses, or even just sign their names on them. Voila, fun handmade winter's greetings cards for some special seniors who are missing working on their gardening because of the cold weather.

 Or maybe even get a head start with a Happy Valentine card using cute country holidays clipart and maybe some sweet scrapbook inspirational verses and sayings. They make nice verses for greeting cards as well.

Whatever you decide, have a wonderful time with these fun and easy crafts for the whole family – from your sweet seniors to your adorable grandkids. And have a FUN, blessed, and safe New Year's Eve!

P.S. Speaking of clipart, I have to tell you, I LOVE Trina & Friends country clipart. She has such a great selection of regular and holiday clipart along with awesome prices and a wonderful useage policy – perfect for this granny nanny who is also a baby boomer blogger.  ๐Ÿ™‚  And perfect, as well as easy to download, for fun planned or spur-of-the-moment craft activities for grandparents and grandchildren at your house! I've been using her clip art for several years and highly recommend it!
