My Response to God's Gifts

Image result for clipart for blessingsSeven years ago tomorrow God blessed our family with one of His most amazing gifts . . . the arrival of my first grandchild; and nothing has been the same since then! This sweet boy has brought so much joy to my heart!

Two more sweet boys have followed . . . I am most blessed indeed! Three sweet rascal grandsons . . . I am so thankful for each of them.

Now, while I want them to remember me as their grandma who loved them all of the time, I want them to also remember me as someone who passed on a heritage of faith to them. Someone who pointed them to Jesus! Someone who showed the joy of the Lord in my day-in-day-out life.

There are things in this world which I could focus on, but nothing is more important than passing on a heritage of faith. As my grandsons grow up, I want them to love, know and follow God with their all. If I want this for them - and I most certainly do - then I have to show it in my life first.

Loving, knowing and walking with God and passing on a heritage of faith . . . my grateful response to these three wonderful gifts from God's hand!
