YouTube is a great resource for many, including those of us in the Sandwich Generation who can use encouragement from praise and worship music, or fun Bible song additions to activities for grandparents and their grandchildren. It can also be an excellent source of laughter, going well with Proverbs 17:22, "A merry heart does good like medicine." Here are some fun videos to put a smile on the face of our senior parents, our grandchildren, and ourselves. 

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine Proverbs 17 22

The first two are performed by Hilton Griswold. I had never heard of Hilton Griswold before, but I've since discovered he's a very talented senior musician who really loves God! He used to sing for the Blackwood Brothers and for VCYAmerica. Here's an extra Sandwich Generation connection. I asked my mother-in-law if she had ever heard of any of them, as her mom was always involved in Gospel "sings." She wrote me, "The Blackwood Brothers were at one of the gospel song fests that used to be held near us every year. Your oldest daughter accompanied mom, a friend, and I to the last one held in our area." Very cool piece of family history, with three of our four generations attending that, I must say. 🙂

Here he is reciting a very cute poem most seniors can relate to – for that matter, I, as a member of the never-aging Baby Boomers Generation, can also relate to it – especially in regards to the senior discounts!

This is one the great-grandparents and your grandkids can enjoy together, the Senior version of "Jesus Loves Me."

And last, but not least, one of the Bill Gaither and Mark Lowry videos, featuring some of the Gaither singers with a Christian comedian I got to see in person with my mother-in-law. And believe me, that church building was laughing their heads off, from senior citizens on down to young grandkids! I played it for my oldest grandchild and her friend and they both enjoyed it, even if a few of the jokes were a bit over their heads. One caveat you need to know, Mark Lowry and Bill Gaither have a regular "routine" together. Reminds me a bit of the Smother's Brothers (that's the Baby Boomers Generation analogy. For the seniors – how about Abbot and Costello. 🙂 ). It's all in fun and all funny!

These were fun to find and fun to watch. I hope your Sandwich Generation family – from your elderly parents on down to your young grandkids – wlll enjoy them as well.
