Life can be tough sometimes, can't it? You and I, in the throes of the Sandwich Generation, are busy dealing with all the ups and downs that come with caring for the elderly parents and relatives in our family while juggling the needs of our kids or even babysitting grandchildren. Whether we are dealing with a beloved parent who has a debilitating disease or dementia symptoms or a grandchild who broke his leg playing soccer, it's difficult, isn't it? And if both are going on at once, it may seem like we just don't have the strength and wisdom to deal with it all!

Isn't it wonderful to KNOW that, even on the most difficult days – ones that make you feel like you just can't keep going on – there is HOPE and HELP in GOD! And it's only a simple CALL away. (Not only that, unlike my iPhone or my senior mom's cell phone for seniors, this call never gets a busy signal! πŸ™‚ )

The Sandwich Generation issues of caring for the elderly parents in the family can lead to a hurting heart from such things as grief hospice and death - but comforting Bible verses remind us GOD is our strength

Comforting and encouraging Bible verses, like Psalm 73:25b-26, "…besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever," are wonderful reminders of the FACT that GOD is our STRENGTH FOREVER! They are perfect for us, in the Sandwich Generation, to spend time in daily, thinking over – meditating about – dwelling on! Not to mention, teaching them as Bible memory verses for our children and grandchildren. What a blessed gift to us from the awesome Word of God!
