Four Steps to Making Great Memories with Grandchildren!

I so appreciate the  devotion from the Grandmother's Bible for today! It was written by Bobbie Wolgemuth and is entitled, I Will . .  I Will . . .  She says, "Psalm 9 contains a great 'I Will' activity list to remember when you spend time with your grandchild. First, start with an attitude of praise. Tell the Lord what you are thankful for. Count your blessings, name them. It will be easy to have a heart full of thankfulness after you've named even a few. Your heart will be full and running over with the kind of attitude which pleases God and spills over on the young ones with the love of the Savior. Second, tell the kids what God has done in the past. One of our greatest resources as grandmothers is the history we have lived.  Everyday  miracles fill our memory banks.  Pull a few past marvels out of your memory treasure chest and tell your grandchild of the Lord's wonders. Third, be a happy grandmother. Open the door with a smile and a hug. Let your face show the gladness of the Lord. Your inside joy should envelop your grandchildren with every encounter, no matter where you are. The fourth 'I will" is my favorite: sing. Sing with your grandchildren. Leave a song in their hearts."

It is Sunday, so I will be spending time with my grandsons again on Tuesday. My daughter-in-law drops them off after school, so she is able to go back to work. We will hang out together and then the boys will stay for supper - their dad will come get them when he gets out of work and have a quick bite before taking them to Cub Scouts. I LOVE Tuesdays and the time I am blessed to spend with my grandsons - I have ever so much to be thankful for, for sure!

Do you have any special days where you spend time with your grandchildren? What do you do? So, today, or tomorrow, or the next time you are with your grandchildren, remember these four things and help hand down a heritage of faith by the things you say and do!
