beyond a shadow of doubt

As the Kids were growing up, in fact even to this day as “Grown-up Kids,” I’ve had the privilege of watching my mom and dad {aka Granna and Granddaddy} lovingly look at each of them with eyes of His Love.  I have heard their prayers poured out over each one of them, individually and collectively.  As only godly grandparents do. . . through His Love.

I often wonder, do they realize how they have been prayed for and continue to be prayed for each and every day? Are they aware, do they know the words of love/of concern/of joy/of angst that have been poured out? How the words, these prayers GO WITH him/her each and every day, every where they go?   What an example of how the Holy Spirit loves us, how Jesus loves us, how our Abba Father loves us.

Now it’s my turn . . . 

A couple of weeks ago, we took an extra long weekend . . . {played hooky}. . .

. . .spent some time with our Sweet R and her daddy {CP} at the State Fair of Texas in Big D! The weather was great and there were no big crowds {like last year when we went on Saturday!},

there were games to play,

and animals to see and feed,

and of course, the big attraction – the ferris wheel!

It was a day full of fun and full of memories… and yes, I found myself looking at Sweet R with those same eyes I saw/see in Granna and Granddaddy!

But the highlight of the day, {the etching on my heart, in my memory that I carry with me} can’t be shown in pictures…

  At the end of the day, as we were on our way back to the car that precious face, with those sweet eyes looked into my eyes and said,

“Nana, will you be my best friend?”
“Of course, Sweet R, I will be your best friend.”
Always? Always?
“Oh YES, I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS be your best friend!”

Oh what a reminder to me from that little four-year old.  Beyond a shadow of a doubt prayers surround you~Sweet R, CP, CL, and Daughter (and our New Son-AL) every day.

It’s the privilege of a parent, a grandparent, a great-grandparent.

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
