I got short changed at the farmers market. I lost my leys in the parking lot(I think). We went through the train museum at a run and I am still a little sore from surgery. What a great day! But if I had spent the day alone and come home with my keys my money and my rest I would have missed out on a slice of God’s love. I am thankful because any day with our grandchildren is an investment with eternal returns!
Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
The smiles of grandchildren are the most beautiful flowers in the garden!
I’ve began by weaving together stories for our children when they were small. While there were a number of starts and stops along the way they culminated in a single tale about a lost lamb, named Tad. As the years have passed Tad’s adventures grew into a three part series and now that our “boys” are in their forties I have started a series for the grand-kids about “Candle” the firefly. In all there are six stories, each being a small adventure that focuses on a life lesson for little hearts such as, how to make friends, trust God or be brave.
If you would like to find out what Tad or Candle have been up to you may either follow the link provided or search on Amazon for it by title. Be blessed
Our grandsons new cats Tigger and the other Simba thought this paper bag was a great place for a nap. What a blessing that they are more excited about their new friends than all the video game stuff they found under the Christmas tree!
Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged parents are the pride of their children. Proverbs 17:6
When grandparents and parents play on the same team kids come out ahead. Here are just a few ideas I have learned as a grandfather.
Grandparents don’t have all the answers but we have learned a few of the right questions…
Grandparents can’t keep up like Mom and Dad but we can help the kids to learn to slow down and wait…
Mom and Dad make sure there is always a good meal on the table. Grandparents make sure that there are always chocolate chip cookies!
Sometimes Dad and Mom feel like the demands will never end. Grandparents know that it all comes to an end too quickly!
God bless all you Moms and Dads as you share with us the gifts of our grandchildren. With God’s grace we hope to give them back to you wrapped in the love of a grandparent!
Dancing with grandchildren is effortless because we labored over learning the right steps with their Moms and Dads!
Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children Proverbs 17:6
