Autumn has come in with a vengeance where my Sandwich Generation family lives – complete with yesterday's major rain storm, thunder and lightning non-stop for hours, and even a power outage for about an hour! During the dark moments of no electricity, my senior mom enjoyed listening to Jack Benny on her iPad as I supervised my visiting grandsons having fun playing fort with the couch while listening to music on the one iPod that still had power (yes, sadly, this tech-savvy grandma didn't have everything fully charged like I usually do – too much to do and too little sleep the night before 🙂 ). When the power came back on and the overhead lights gleamed brightly on the dark living room, I was reminded of one of my favorite Scriptures.
For You light my lamp; The LORD my God illumines my darkness. Psalm 18:28
Later in the day, I was talking to yet another grandson about the morning's events. His house had some power blinking but no outage. I told him about ours and that I was using this verse for Word-Filled Wednesday and asked what he thought about it. He asked, "Does the Bible really have a verse about lights?" I told him it did and showed it to him on a post of mine from last month. He thought about it for a minute and then commented, wise beyond his years, "Well, after all, the Bible has a verse about everything, doesn't it?"
Talk about a grandma's heart bursting with joy! I agreed, saying "It does about everything that matters, that's for sure!" Don't you love it when our children or grandchildren let us know they really ARE listening! That's definitely a blessing to grandparents everywhere.
