For My Grandchildren...

"Oh, be careful little eyes what you see,
be careful little eyes what you see.
For the Father up above,
He is looking down in love,
So be careful little eyes what you see..."

I taught you that in Sunday School, remember? What a total privilege that was for me as your grandmother! You wore your little "Missionettes" uniform and sang the little girl songs you loved to sing. You invited your best buddies to come with you to Missionettes - you were already an eager little missionary at the tender age of five! Everything you heard about Jesus, you believed! That must be why God tells us that we need the faith of a little child to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Your faith was immediate, joyful and without doubt. I loved seeing that in you!
Over much too quickly, you have grown up overnight and I am no longer living close enough to see you every day. 
But, that sweet little interlude in your life and mine
is engraved upon my heart forever.
Today, you are running as fast as your feet can carry you into your dreams. I am watching from the sidelines and sending my love and my prayers with you on the wings of the angels. This is what I pray for you, little one. Today and always -

May you never forget the God you fell in love with when you were a child, learning at my knee...

May you never get lost in a world that has lost it's way home...

May you treasure the gifts He has poured on your head
and use them for His glory...

May you stay humble enough to know that you are but a tiny reflection of the Mighty God you serve...

May you never doubt Who it is that loves you and formed you by His own hand to belong to Him...

May you have the passion to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are lost all around you...

May you remember that you are a
One-of-a-Kind Masterpiece, 
created by God for His purpose -
you are no accident...

May you be an Encourager,
a Believer,
a Lover and
a Follower after Jesus...

May you never apologize for belonging to Jesus -
be bold in proclaiming the Gospel...

May you remember that God loves you. 
And so do I. 
Never, ever forget that! 

Teach your children to love the Lord. 
And your children's children, after that...

That is my legacy to you, Sweetheart. 
Today and always, in my heart.



  1. You know , Maureen . This is a prayer that every parent / grandparent prays on their knees about . .. how we want this so much for our children .
    Beautifully said.

  2. Thank you, Lottie. There are no sweeter prayers that fly to the ear of God than those prayed by a parent/grandparent for their children. I believe God smiles on us when we implore His blessing on the children we love so much. Long after we are gone, He is still holding onto them - both our prayers and our children... I find that so very comforting!


How are you doing on your journey with the Lord? Started yet? Still searching. My prayer is that you will be encouraged to seek after Him with all your heart. Without a doubt, you will find Him. He is searching for YOU!
