A Grandmother’s Prayers

I am a firm believer in prayer. It is a comfort to know that our heavenly Father invites me to come to Him anytime, with any concern, for any reason and just talk with Him. The Bible encourages prayer. Philippians 4:6 says: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” What a beautiful opportunity to talk with God!

When our children were in school I joined a group called Moms in Touch. This nationally known group makes prayer an emphasis for mothers and their children in school. It was marvelous to pray for them and their teachers, classmates, and administrators by name. Now I want my grandchildren to know that MiMi prays for them.

Recently, I sent each grandchild a card with a personal Bible verse that expresses my prayer. It was a simple gesture, yet profound. I keep a color tab in my Bible to flag their Scripture prayer. It is a joy to remember them in prayer.

Now, as a grandmother, I hope to have a Grandmothers in Touch group! Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Grandmothers that join together, across the miles maybe, to pray for their grandchildren and their classmates and teachers.

Praying For Your Children

I was just dropping my then-12-year-old Lexi off at pottery class, but found myself faced with an unexpected and unsettling dilemma. Each month, the pottery studio featured an art display in the lobby but this one sickened my spirit. Skeletons, overtly sensual sculptures of Eden, death, darkness. Perhaps it was the Halloween season, but this Continue »

PEACE IN EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING

I’ve often referred to my life as “joyful chaos.” I’ve been exceedingly blessed with five children—five boisterous people who make my life beautiful. But I have one little person in particular who is gifted at bringing the party, but her parties completely stress me out. How can someone so small cause such mayhem? She is challenging and Continue »
