Pinks and Reds and Scripture for the Sandwich GenerationTalk about a year on roller skates! Valentine's Day has passed, St. Patrick's Day – spring – the time change are ALL right around the corner, and Easter decor has hit the stores already. In many of our Sandwich Generation homes, caregiving needs and health issues are keeping us running at light speed as well. Mine definitely is!  Along with the lack of time to accomplish everything we may want to do, can come feelings of frustration, concern, impatience… All are the OPPOSITE of the fruit of the Spirit that God wants us to focus on. A couple of weeks ago, I was really rushing and really stressing and needed something to focus on that was a whole lot more positive. God gave me this Scripture,

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3 (NIV)

(Do you notice something about this passage? There are several of the fruit of the Spirit included in it – gentle, patient, love, peace… How perfect for this year, don't you think?)

I put this Scripture passage into my cell phone as a wallpaper so I could keep meditating on it. Then God reinforced it by having this passage be part of the sermon verses on Sunday. Anytime He repeats things like that, I cling to them extra hard and decided they would be a perfect way to end February and start March here at SandwichINK.

They are certainly a wonderful RX for any caregiver to appropriate and put into practice, aren't they? And they're excellent to share with our grandchildren as well. Perfect for our whole Sandwich Generation family, indeed. In fact, here's a cute coloring page I made from this adorable clipart, just to share with you and your family.

  1. Kaye, I’ve saved this scripture, because it’s so appropriate for my life right now. I’m caring for my elderly Mom three days a week, and at times it can be overwhelming. I think that this will definitely bring me peace whenever I start to feeling that way. Thank you SO much for sharing this!
    Happy REDnesday,

  2. I’ve never thought of using scripture as my phone wallpaper. Smart, smart, smart idea. Thank you for the suggestion!

  3. We all need to be reminded to be more humble, more gentle, more patient and more kind to one another. Thanks for the reminder.

    HI Kaye – Oh how I needed to hear your post today! I’ve been struggling with feeling frustrated and overwhelmed with my To Do List versus my Want To Do List – and yes – focus on the fruits may send that sense of unrest away and I just might find more time in my day! Joy to you!

  4. Visiting from the Grandparents Say It Saturday linkup – such good words to remind ourselves of. And I love your digital artwork that you made with the words from Ephesians 4!

    “As a prisoner for the Lord” I am thinking about this. Our women’s retreat next week will be focused on submitting to the Lord, serving Him with our whole heart.
    And unity–as members of His church we need unity to carry out the roles God has for us.
    Thank-you for sharing this verse. May God bless you as you meet the needs of your family.
