The news for all of us, including boomers and seniors, continues to be gloomy. Here in the US, we are having fun celebrating our 4th of July birthday, yet there are clouds of concern overhead as we do so. For that matter, it really doesn't matter what country we live in. Newspaper headlines continue to be full of warnings and concerns about wars and rumors of wars, financial woes, upside down housing issues, gas prices, grocery prices, and on and on. For those of us caring for elderly parents, I doubt I'm alone in working hard to encourage our aging parents as they grow more and more fearful.
Earlier this week, I shared 2 Chronicles 7:14 for Word-filled Wednesday. I personally think it is one of the best prescriptions for what ails ALL our countries. And praying simple Scripture prayers for our nation with our grandkids and around our grandkids is a great example to set for our grandchildren, our senior parents, and all of our loved ones.
Here's one of my Smilebox ecards creations to go along with these words of encouragement from the Lord. If My People Pray is one of the songs by Avalon on their album, In a Different Light. It's lovely, it's encouraging, it's challenging – for all of us in the Sandwich Generation.
Celebrating holidays with our families is a delightful way of building up sweet family memories. Sharing times in prayer together – for our nation as well as our families – is a wonderful way of adding to those sweet memories in a special way, leaving a spiritual legacy that will last for an eternity. Have a blessed Spiritual Sunday and a blessed weekend!
