H-OWL-Ween Fun for the Sandwich Generation granny nanny and grandkids and Halloween trick or treatersMy kids think I'm a bit "Christmas crazy" since I often enjoy Christmas carols and music WAY before Christmas. It's not unusual to find me singing Joy to the World in July, or Deck the Halls in September. Fortunately my grandkids don't mind in the least, and often join with me in belting out Hark the Herald Angels Sing or Jingle Bells

To be honest, though, I had no intention of using a Christmas song in this post. I went looking for one of the lovely old Christian hymns, Immortal Invisible God Only Wise as I thought it would go well with last Wednesday's verse, Psalm 107:43, Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the LORD. Then I discovered a delightful, and somewhat Christmas-flavored version of it by SoundingJoy and absolutely could NOT resist. And after all, it's almost Thanksgiving. 🙂

What did you think? Bet our grandkids would all love it – and what great words of encouragement to share with them!

1.  Immortal, invisible, God only wise,

     in light inaccessible hid from our eyes,

     most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,

     almighty, victorious, thy great name we praise.

2.  Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,

     nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might;

     thy justice like mountains high soaring above

     thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.    

3.  To all, life thou givest, to both great and small;

     in all life thou livest, the true life of all;

     we blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,

     and wither and perish, but naught changeth thee.

4.  Thou reignest in glory; thou dwellest in light;

     thine angels adore thee, all veiling their sight;

     all laud we would render:  O help us to see

     'tis only the splendor of light hideth thee.

Definitely great words to teach our children and grandchildren. And when it's sung in such a spirited and cheery and, yes, Christmas-y way – what fun for our whole Sandwich Generation family, don't you think? 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving – and early Merry Christmas!

Spiritual Sundays are full of devotionals with encouraging Bible verses to bless the Sandwich Generation boomers and seniors busy caring for the elderly parents while babysitting grandchildren

Pink Fall Greetings To The Sandwich Generation


  1. Great lyrics but I have to public admit — I get really tired of Christmas music in October and November!

  2. That’s beautiful, Kaye. My middle daughter (mom to my grandsons) is much like you. She couldn’t wait for the day after Halloween so she could take down the Halloween decorations and break out the Christmas music. I prefer to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to play ANY Christmas music or movies. 😀

  3. Oops! Forgot to say THANKS for sharing in the GRAND Social!
