Family honor.

Today marks 37 years since God called my father home. Out of his six kids, he had only four grandchildren, one adopted. My sister had an accident as a child, which prevented her from having children. The rest of us without children tried unsuccessfully.

As much as I love traveling with my husband, I miss having children. Watching my friends enjoy their grandchildren brings joy to my heart. Working with kids encourages and uplifts my soul. Why God didn’t bless us with children, I don’t know. Having long accepted His will for our lives, I enjoy the children The Lord brings into my life.

Grandchildren bring joy to the aged, as children honor their parents. The circle of life continues through the ages as people come of age and have their own families. Enjoy the moments with youngsters; they grow fast, becoming parents themselves.

Life continues at a rapid pace. Staying in the moment helps to enjoy it. Respecting grandparents and honoring parents allows us to treasure our family heritage.

Lord, thank You for blessing our lives with children, whether our own or others. Please help us cherish our moments with them, honoring our grandparents and parents as we do. Let us value our family heritage each day. IJNIP. Amen
