Thank God for Granddaughters



Granddaughters . . .
stretch my soul, my mind, and my body

When they are around I. . .
laugh more
learn more
listen more
imagine more
move more

In them I see . . .
the world through young eyes
child-like faith
deep roots their parents have given them
hope for the future

I pray that . . .
their roots will grow even deeper in God's love
God will hold them close and keep them from harm
their hearts will remain tender and open to God's whispers
their feet will follow the paths that lead to His good plans for them
the world will be better place because Abby and Emily make a difference

I know that . . .
they are in good hands

Laugh, learn, listen,imagine, and move. I LOVE it because this is exactly true for me as well!! they make us feel both young and very old at the same time, don't they? Nothing else like it!

Ah, how we love our grandchildren! They are so precious to us. I love the promises in John 6:39, 40 and also John 10:27-29.

When I read this I am reminded of the beautiful relationship that my daughter has with my father. Since she was born (22 years ago) she has been her 'princess'. It's simply beautiful - they are lucky to have each other and I am truly blessed to have them both.
