Both of my grandmothers passed away this year, one in March and the other on Friday. Today marks my first Grandparents day without any grandparents on this earth. I have thought about all four of them a lot this weekend and the impact they had on my life. Here are 5 life lessons I have taken from my time with them.
1. Love the Lord. Two verses that are on my heart today are Deuteronomy 4:39-40 "Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other. Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land your God gives you for all time."
It is no secret that my grandparents loved the Lord and passed on their faith to the generations after them. Although they weren't perfect and perhaps we wouldn't necessarily see eye to eye in all matters of theology, I am grateful that I was raised in a Christian home and they deserve part of the credit.
