One of my goals for SandwichINK is to provide encouragement for all you wonderful Sandwich Generation Senior Home Care Givers and Grandparents, as well as myself. When I spotted the Word-Filled Wednesday meme, I thought, “What an encouragement for all of us.” After spending the last few evenings reading the various sites’ entries, I have to say, “WHAT A BLESSED ENCOURAGEMENT FOR ALL OF US!”
Each night I would spend a few minutes enjoying the various photos and reading the verses and devotionals and God would lift my spirits, give rest to my soul, and a couple of times He even used them to point out some weak areas that needed fine-tuning. My favorite was the adorable picture of the ostrich with the Bible verse Ephesians 4:29:
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.
or as the Good News Translation puts it,
Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you.
I’m using it to remind me to speak helpful words to others, even when life is throwing me one frustration headache after another!!!
I’m going to print out my favorites each Wednesday to make some Words of Encouragement booklets using these wonderful inspirational Bible verses for my grandkids and I to enjoy reading together.
What a great way to put into practice Deut. 6:7:
“You shall teach [God’s Words”] diligently to your [grandkids] and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”
What were your favorite photos and Bible verses? We’d love to hear. Also, be sure to sign up for the SandwichINK free email for more info, grandkid craft ideas, and encouragement!
