A couple weeks ago I went on a road trip with my sisters. We drove to Kansas to visit my daughter and her family. My grandchildren were on spring break, giving us time together.
We visited the Wichita Art Museum because the museum had a children’s program for the week of spring break. The boys participated in a craft with my daughter and one sister, while three of us toured the exhibit of historical dresses that had been crafted out of paper. The dresses were designed from portraits of women.
We spent time reading books, making crafts at home and sharing meals. We watched an old movie, The Railway Children, based on the book by E. Nesbitt. The trip was a blessing!
After coming home, I was reminded of the value of spending time with children.
Every Thursday I tune into the High Wire with Del Bigtree. The week after our trip he had Catherine Austin Fitts, an Investment Banker and Economist, on his program to talk about the central banks and financial issues. At the end of her talk, she made a statement that stuck with me. “No one can build a healthy economy without building healthy children.”
This past Wednesday my Bible study group was discussing Psalm 145. The following verses captured my attention.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your might acts. Psalm 145: 3-4
My husband remembers his grandmother singing the Psalms as she went about daily tasks. She had suffered much loss in her life, but she praised the Lord.
There are many troubles in the world that can stress children. As I spend time with my grandchildren, I want to share praise for God and my experience of faith.
