Sunday’s Scripture (May 31)

My family is experiencing a tremendous amount of change and upheaval. My husband and I are spending more time in the U.S. though we continue our ministry in Ukraine, and are dealing with the pain of leaving wherever we have been. Does that make sense? This summer has been one of great anticipation as we …

Sunday’s Scripture (May 17)

“That’s mine.” “What? No, thanks. I don’t want to _____ [insert any chore].” “Do I have to share?!” One grandmother prays specifically that her grandchildren will grow up to be helpful, generous, caring adults…by exhibiting those attitudes and habits even as children. Of course, the grandparents and parents need to model this behavior so that …

Friday fun (May 15)

It’s that time of the week again…time to post some Friday fun! Well, the weather must be warming up all over because so many ideas were posted for outdoor water play this week. Obvious simple fun…water balloon fights, running through sprinklers, pools. Most of us can remember those simple delights, and I look forward to …

Have a Grand Day (May 11)

I had no idea that so many grandmothers were blogging. Honestly. And they have some of the most tried and true ideas ever. Experience goes a long way is the trenches of grandmotherhood. One delightful way that I’ve ‘met’ some wonderful grandmothers is through a link-up party at another blog. We all can link a …

Sunday’s Scripture (May 10)

I am so thankful to have reconnected with a dear high school friend…one of the advantages of social media, I suppose. When we were together I asked her to consider my request for scriptures that she prays for her grandchildren. Rather than send a specific scripture she shared that she prays for her grandchildren to …

Friday fun (May 8)

Summer happenings! Several ideas to work into your summer schedules: I was excited to see that the Regal Movie Theaters have posted the schedule for summer $1 movies! You’ll need to enter in your zip code to find the theater closest to you to determine the starting week but once you have THAT date, the …

Victory in Europe Day

This is the first year that Ukraine is officially joining the ranks of those countries who celebrate V-E Day on May 8, rather than May 9 when Russia celebrates. As we look at the situation in Ukraine and Europe at this point in history, we’d best not forget the lessons we should have learned during …

A Grandmother’s Prayers

My husband and I are reading A Grandmother’s Prayers together each morning after our Bible reading but before we pray. Author Kay Swatkowski writes in the introduction: “During my years spent working in women’s ministry, I constantly heard women affectionately sharing stories like these of the love, support, and prayers of their grandparents and the …

Your input needed!

I am relatively new to the grammy blog community, but I have been reading up on this fabulous time of life for several years now. I have some favorite resources that I plan to share one at a time, and eventually I’ll add a page, maybe even a widget (what?! Is this really me?!) that …

Sunday’s Scripture — May 3

Sunday’s Scripture. I thank those of you who have commented, messaged me, or sent an e-mail letting me know how you specifically pray for your grandchildren. One grandmother (with her three daughters) prays every day for her grandchildren, especially the three who are in school. And particularly for protection for each one of them. She …
