God is Always at Work

As grandmas we pray for our grandchildren. We pray regularly and we do share our faith, but the work is done by God and He does not take a break or give up. He is the One who made our grandchildren - and our children - and He loves them even more than do we.

Choose Faith & See With Your Heart

Make the choice to trust; to have faith, even when it looks like nothing is happening around us. Even when it looks like our prayers are not being answered. We do not know what God is doing to answer our prayers; He has promised to hear, listen to and answer our prayers and we KNOW God ALWAYS keeps His promises!

Hand Down the Faith with Mystery Bags - Stained Glue Valentines Day Hearts

From time to time I browse on Pinterest to look at ideas for projects I might try with my grandsons. A few years ago I found a wonderful craft which is perfect for Valentines Day - Stained Glue Valentines Day Hearts - and since it is just a month away, today I'm happy to share it with you as our "Mystery Bag" project for this week.

This craft would be great fun to make with your grandchildren over several days. Stained Glue Valentines Day Hearts make wonderful gifts for them to give to their parents, teachers or to anyone on their Valentines Day list and a fun way for them to share God's love with others as well.

Use Grace

Why wouldn't we want to treat our family; our children and grandchildren with grace? We need to be people who use words which build up our family and whose actions will always be remembered by our children and grandchildren when they are grown as actions which reminded them how much they are dearly loved.

The Sunshine After Rain & Joy After Trial

We all have difficult times in our lives. We all deal with disappointment, sadness, pain, grief and just the confusion which comes with these things. But, we do not have to let these difficult times push us away from God. No! We are able to let them pull us closer to Him instead, and when we pull closer to Him, we will find His peace, comfort, love and joy!

Pray - God Hears!

Take your concerns and joys to God in prayer; and model this for your grandchildren. God does want us - and them - to do this and He promises to hear, listen to and answer our prayers! If it matters to you, it matters to God.

Teach this to your grandchildren - and consider starting a "Prayer Journal" where you all are able to record your requests and how God answers, so you are able to see and remember God's faithfulness in your lives. 

Consider making these verses from Psalm 145 your prayer this week . . . 

A Life of Integrity & Faithfulness

This year my husband will reach the age of 60. This seems impossible - how could he possibly be that old?! I am just a couple years behind him and it seems impossible to me for us to be reaching our 60's! I don't feel that old, but the truth is, there are definitely more years behind us than there are before us. But, while I do not know however many more years are before us, I do know when the day comes and we enter Heaven, we both want to hear God say, "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
