Children are a blessing from the Lord.
These, plus five, make up our great grands.
Fruitful minds, eternal souls, eager hands.
Our influence extended to the third and fourth generation.
Preparing citizens for our “God blessed” nation.
Hiding fears for the coming tomorrows,
Trusting the Lord for help through their sorrows.
His promises secure,
I’m hopeful and sure,
—That his love will endure!
Prayer: Merciful and loving eternal Father, I bring to your remembrance the words of Matthew 19:14 “Jesus …said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” Thank you that you do not sleep neither do you cease to exist. Your eye will ever watch my children to see what you can do good for them. And thank you that the ultimate good is eternal salvation. I gladly trust them to you.
Picture taken at Sammy’s big “90” birthday party last night. Thanks, Krissy and Josh, for the work; thanks others of you for your time and travel to make such a pleasant evening remembering Papa. ♥
Thanks much. ♥
A wonderful heritage! You both can be proud.
We are blessed indeed. Thanks for comment. 😀
Your Bible verse, Oneta, reminded me of a song I’m sure your kiddos all know:
Jesus loves the little children,
all the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
they are precious in his sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.
I wonder how many of us remember singing that in Sunday School. There’s a good lesson there, too.
It is a “never-grow-old” story/song. Thanks, Calin.
Happy Birthday—and to think, he still is married to a “looker” 🙂
