Celebrating Grandparents

Celebrating Grandparents

Last Sunday was Grandparents Sunday. 

I thought of my grandparents and their influence on my life, the inheritance of genetics, stories and family histories. So many grandparents have stepped into roles of support for their grandchildren. There are also many are surrogate grandparents bonded to children by unconditional love.

We call them by many names:

Big Mama and Paw-Paw, Memaw and Pop-Pop,
Grams and Poppie, Nanna and Grandpa and many more. 

Let’s give thanks for grandparents and bless them:

We bless you
for gifts of love, time and patience!
We bless you
for the sacrifices you make for us! 

For helping raise us, sharing your faith,
For praying for us and keeping a strong light shining
In a world full of darkness.


Rev. David
