Psalm 127:3 New International Version (NIV)
Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
I love watching my grandchildren play. The joy of watch this Grammie, just melts my heart. I love time and that's such a gift from God. There are times when I just don't want to go to the part with them, but the little face and voice saying, "Please Grammie". You got to know that no becomes a yes. It's time and creating memories with them. I never knew a Grandma who was in my life. I just didn't know how to be a grandma, but I know I've become a great one.
Today marks a tea party with my granddaughters. We will tell stories, share songs and even a dance party. Coming up with fun things is important when you have the blessings of watching children. It's also important to teach them about Jesus and how he loved being around children too.
Matthew 18:2-6 New International Version (NIV)
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
Causing to Stumble
6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
It is meant to be that children can bring light into a dark room. Their smiles and so any people love babies. If we could only see the baby inside each of us and know that we continue to learn daily. Nothing is too big for God and our faith grows by hearing. Our lives change by others to come into our lives and shines too. Let us not forgive to give thanks for children and help be an example of kindness in their lives. If we could only stop before we react to kids at times of frustration. Sure kids do wrong things, but God wants us to teach them by his example. Come to me and I'll always be here for you. You can tell me anything and we can talk about it. That's what Jesus says to us and we can share that with others too. Purpose time with kids and shine for Jesus daily.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
