All 7 of our grandchildren have visited us recently – 3 are with us today. How God has blessed Sue and me! Each one is precious to us. Proverbs 17:6, Grandchildren are the crown of the aged. Now I don’t specifically like that term “aged,” but I do qualify sometimes for a senior citizen discount.
Scripture speaks of our children’s children being a crown – a symbol of dignity, a description of joy. They are the rewards of parenting – a testimony of a legacy lived long after we’re gone.
Our friends Dave and Kathy Schediel (Dave has spoken here before) live now in Calgary, Alberta. They are part of a unique ministry, Christian Grandparenting. Bookmarks from that organization are in the bulletin to help those of us who are grandparents to pray more intelligently for our grandchildren. Parents, you can use these for your children as well.
