A Grandmother's Prayer

Dear God,
I am grateful for the sweet grandchildren you have given to me.
•    I pray you will give me the grace to be a “Mamaw” who loves, accepts, leads and guides them with your love.
•    I want to model my faith in Jesus so they will be to encouraged put their faith in you early in their lives.
•    I pray they will develop a compassionate heart with a desire to serve others.
•    When discouraged, may they trust you for their hope for a future and develop perseverance during hard times.
•    May they enjoy hard work and find joy and contentment in each day despite difficult circumstances.
•    Help them to enjoy the small things in their lives and take time to smell the roses and notice the beautiful clouds in the sky.
•    I trust they will seek new experiences in your creation around them in place of material possessions.
•    I pray they will hold their possessions loosely and give cheerfully to your work.
•    My desire is for them to develop a strong prayer life as they grow in their faith.
•    Above all, may they seek your guidance in everything they do and may Jesus’ love shine through them to everyone.                 
In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Just popping in to see what you've been up to! Loved that video of the little girl singing Oh Holy Night (my most favorite Christmas carol of all times.) The cat scratch post cartoon was really cute too. Hope you are doing well! Best, Curt
