Granddarlings aka Grandchildren

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

There is nothing more precious on this earth than Granddarlings aka Grandchildren! Oh, our children are one of God’s greatest gifts, but we get so busy providing for, raising, disciplining and teaching them that we sometimes forget to fully enjoy them! Then God presents us with one of His Supreme gifts…GRANDCHILDREN!

Grandchildren are an extension of our children! Have you heard the expression payback? Well, in a lot of ways that is true ~ you can see a lot of your child in your child’s child, but sometimes you can also see your child’s sibling or even yourself when you were a child! You can also witness the wonderful gifts God has placed in them and the unending possibilities!

Your heart swells with an unconditional love like non other; you have the opportunity to love, enjoy, laugh, guide, teach and yes even discipline them without the day to day responsibilities! One of the most rewarding things is to watch them grow and mature not only physically but also spiritually! There is nothing more beautiful than a child’s faith and love for God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit! I treasure the talks my Granddarlings and I have had and continue to have regarding our God! One of the most rewarding, enduring and most special things my Granddarlings has ever said to me was when Emma and Zachary were like 3 and 5. I was telling them how they were growing up too fast and Zachary said, ‘Mimi, we growing too fast?’ I said, ‘yes’ and Emma said ‘why’? I told them that there would come a day when they would be too busy and not need MiMi as much. Emma said, ‘I know what Mimi! When we grow up and have children, you can keep them and teach them about Jesus’! I will treasure this forever!

If you are blessed with a Granddarling(s) or Grandchildren, please treasure them beyond measure! Treasure every minute, every memory! They are truly one of God’s Supreme blessings!

These are all photos of our son's children from the birth of Sammy (MiMi's little Caboose ~ the last train on the car ~) to first day of school August 2012

This is our daughter's son, Christopher, our first Granddarling. He is now a Man and a good-looking one at that! He is on his way to becoming a Professor!

We are so proud of all our Granddarlings! God is so good to us! Have a blessed day and remember to pray for, love on and thank God everyday for your precious Granddarlings aka Grandchildren!

Love and Abundant Blessings,

    I have joked that Grandchildren are our reward for not killing our kids when they were teenagers!
    I am blessed to have my 2 eldest grands living with me, along with their Mom who is one of my best friends 9and sparkbuddies). I have two others in Ohio - one of whome I never met, the other whom I haven't seen since Christmas 08. My son and their mother have divorced, and he's in Utah, so HE also hurts to see them. And I have one more on the way, in IRELAND. I hope and pray the Lord allows me to take a cruise to the land of my ancestors and meet him and any siblings he may have by then!
    You're so right - we gotta keep praying for them!
