Precious Gift from God
A few weeks ago, I had a chance to visit my son David’s family, which gave me a chance to be with my little grandkids. I have many friends and family members with grandchildren, and you know what I am saying. What a precious gift from God.!!!!!!!!!
There is nothing like having a little grandchild asking if you want to swing or go for a walk. Then to have both my granddaughters bring me books to read them. Then when the grandkids tell me that they will wake me up in the morning. Life is great as a grandparent. I realize that I need to thank God for these precious gifts. Now I have a little grandson to watch grow. Thank you, God.
James 1:17 (NIV)
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Here is a great prayer I read online from a grandparent. So, fitting.
God of Wonders, every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from You the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. My grandchildren are a precious gift presented by You; I thank You for all their lives! I pray that as they grow older, you will impart more of You into them so that they may grow to be righteous people; they will be a good gift to those around them. I pray that anyone who encounters my grandchildren will know that they have encountered You – use them for Your glory, Amen.
