I Remember Grandma (Part I)
Lest you, dear reader, believe that my Grandma “walked on water,” let me just add, you had better not try too many times during a two-hour stretch in the early afternoon to arrest her attention when her two favorite soap operas were on television. (Even then, she gave you a firm, yet gentle “SHhh!” ) Grandma’s most frequently given counsel to us as kids was ‘Study hard and do well in school, obey your parent(s); and as long as you aren’t being told to disobey the Lord your God, obey those in authority over you. (Acts 5:29; Rom. 13:1) Treat others as you want them to treat you’ (Matthew 7:12). These principles, no doubt, helped me to circumvent much of the trouble experienced by my peers, then and now.
PRAYER: Dear Abba, thank You for your gracious provision of a godly grandmother—one who showed by her life example what it means to trust in Jesus, come what may, and to aspire to love others with the same love wherewith Christ loves us. Amen!

Boy oh boy, there’s nothing like a believing Grandma. Thank You Lord that they passed on Your Word to us.
Praise the Lord for the blessings of our real-life followers of Jesus. Hallelujah!!!
Amen! Sister Denise. Grandparents are true Blessings, it is because of the upbringing and care for us, the same way our grandparents did when they were children..
Generations are looking back and moving forward with Christ at the center.
