Encouraging Bible Memory Verses for The Sandwich Generation granny nannys children and grandchildrenIt's been a bit of a green week, hasn't it? Nope, I haven't been sick – just having lots of fun with St Patricks Day around here at SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation. But now it's time to get a bit more serious as we continue on with Lent ideas for our whole family – from the young kids and grandkids on up to our aging parents and grandparents.

Each day my grandsons and I have been saying Wednesday's encouraging Bible Scripture. Thursday, while driving one to school, we listened to the praise and worship hymn song, Here I am to Worship, by Phillips, Craig and Dean. It was the perfect timing to practice our verse that day. And as I listened to the words, it also seemed an excellent song for this sweet Spiritual Sunday. As I meandered through YouTube, I was especially delighted with this version of the song – in song and ASL – sign language. What a great video to share with our grandchildren!

Last week, for A Pause in Lent 2012, Floss focused on the Liberality of God. I really appreciated that food for thought and was so blessed this week as God kept bringing it back to my mind with a wide variety of encouraging and comforting Bible verses to cheer my heart – even on the gloomiest and rainiest day of the week! Because even there – I rejoiced in the liberality of God as I watched the rain drops come down, slowly at first then faster and faster. The dry field nearby was still looking brown and dead but with plenty of rain, I know it will green up soon and bring a bountiful and, yes, liberal harvest to our neighbor.

A great reminder that as we plant seeds of God's Word – through Bible memory verses and praise and worship music – we too will reap a bountiful harvest – in our hearts and the hearts of our loved ones. What a lovely way of leaving a sweet spiritual legacy for our kids and grandkids! And what joy those songs and scriptures will be as they (and we) grow older through the years. Have a blessed day to all, in AND out of the Sandwich Generation!

  • You’re so right, Kaye. God gives us more than we can ever imagine – if I look back over my prayer requests (which I write in a journal) I quickly see how what dare to I ask God for is narrower and more restricted than his truly bountiful answers.

  • What a great thing to share! Kids love to learn the signs for songs!

  • Beautiful post, Kaye. I love this song and had never seen this particular video. It’s very special. Thank you for being the special lady you are and for sharing your heart with us each week on Spiritual Sundays.
    Blessings,
    Charlotte
