A Tribute to my Grandchildren
Updated: Feb 4, 2021
"Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And He laid His hands on them and departed from there." Matthew 19:13-15
This is a tribute to my precious grandchildren:
Nathaniel Corbin (Nate)
Finley Tyler (Fin Girl)
Logan Olivia (Lolo)
Sutton Grace- the little one that Jesus is holding...
I have prayed for them before they were even thought of. My heart swells with love and pride as I think of them. May God's blessings always be on them and may their hearts be turned to Jesus on the day He knocks.
'Find Your Wings' -Mark Harris
It's only for a moment
You are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." (Jerm. 29:11)
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." (3 John 1:4)
And if I never told you
I want you to know
As I watch you grow
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." (Ps. 126:3)
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings
May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories...
It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly
Oh how I want my grandchildren to know how special and loved and sought after they are by their Papa D and Bo, but so much more than that I want them to know there is a God so big and so amazing that pursues them and calls them to be His own. That they will know the love of Christ and have all the benefits of walking with Him; in His way.
I love you & He loves you more!
Lord, I pray that I will be a light of love, acceptance, support, encouragement and steadfast commitment to helping my grandchildren seek You in their life. Prepare their hearts for the hour You will call them to salvation. I give You the glory! Amen.
