Have a Purpose & Plan for 2022

2022 is before us and while we do not know what all it holds, you are likely similar to me; I have hope for 2022 to be a year filled with opportunities to hand confident faith to my grandchildren and build solid, wonderful, joy-filled memories with them as well! 

While I have plans for fun – trips to our local garden, science projects for them to enjoy, opportunities to serve, and many more opportunities for “fun” – the things I’m most focusing upon, are two ways to build confident faith over the coming year.

The first thing my husband and I are doing is to focus upon 
Lamentations 3:21-23. We want our grandsons to be boys, teens and then men who love, know, and walk with God throughout their lives. We want them to know what it, “looks like” to trust and “walk” with God, and since they are young (thirteen, ten, and eight), we think focusing upon these verses and what it looks like lived out in their lives is a great way to do this . . . and honestly, no matter their age, it is a great way to help us all better understand what it means to walk with God!  One way we do this is to with the sign with this prayer on it which hangs in our dining room where we will see it every time they are here.
"Dear Faithful God, please give us eyes which see today/tomorrow how Your love and mercy never end. Thank You for Your great faithfulness and the hope this brings to our lives. Amen." 
Tomorrow I'll share with you the second thing we are doing in the coming year to help our grandsons love, know, and walk with God.
