Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

May you live to see your children’s children….Psalm 128:6
When my sister Anna was a child, Grandma would come over to our house a few times a week to play games with her. Though they were separated in age by some seventy years, they would sit together on the floor and giggle like best friends.
Once, Grandma looked down at my young sister and said, “Anna you’re .”so cute I could eat you up !” Worried, Anna said “But Grandma, if you ate me up,then you wouldn’t have anyone to play with.
Over the years Grandma has recounted that conversation many times usually on holiday’s when families gathered around the dinner table. She always concludes by looking each of her grand children in the eyes and saying, Someday when I’m on my death bed, if you see me smile just before I pass from this world , you’ll know that I’m remembering that story and thinking of each of you.”
Fortunately for the grandchildren who love her, Grandma is still very much with us. But hearing her say those words had shown me that at the end of my time here, the earthly thing “I’ care about. I try to thank God each day that He’s given me my family and not only that, he’s given me Grandma, who’s taught me how to love them.
Lord, thank You for my family. Please give me the grace to love and care for them each and every day – Joshua
