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.

Don’t Look Away

Day after day we move through the moments doing what we are called to do. We get up, our feet hit the floor, and we push ahead. We choose where our thoughts will go, what we will focus on, and the lens we will view life through. Moment by moment. I don’t know if we Continue »

Christmas is About Jesus

Christmas is about Jesus. The Son, the only Son of God. The Word in the beginning. Creator of all things. The Lamb, the image of the invisible God. In Him all the fullness of deity dwells. In Him all things hold together. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. In all things made like Continue »

Holidays with Parents and In-laws: Let It Be Good

You’re into preparation mode-shopping, cooking, invitations, fundraisers, junk mail, Christmas cards, special parties. And this is above and beyond the regular stuff on your plate–sports teams, concerts, work deadlines, homework help. And then there’s the unexpected–a child’s broken leg, another ear infection, a friend in crisis. But for many there’s another source of underlying stress Continue »

Adoption: Pray and Prepare

“Hi! Are you Megan? Everyone has told me I need to talk to you! My husband and I are in the process of adopting from [overseas], and I would just love to ask you some questions and hear about your experience!” I did not recognize this woman, but apparently we had some common acquaintances. She Continue »

De-stressing the Holidays

I’m going to say something radical: Thanksgiving is not about the food. Yes, Thanksgiving is a feast. It’s a time to be thankful for the year’s bounty, and we celebrate that with food. But that is not what the focus should be. Sadly, our world is full of images and messages feeding us the notion Continue »
