What Does It Mean to Be a Grandmother?


What Does It Mean to Be a Grandmother?

    What does it mean to be a grandmother,
With its endless joy and  delights?
 Doesn’t the world  seem so much better,
 When a grandchild’s hugs are tight?

What does it mean to be a grandmother,
Are there enough words to tell?
Of the love that floods into her heart, 
The moment her grandchild is held.

What does it mean to be a grandmother,
But that her love grows from day to day.
And in her time alone with God, 
For each grandchild, by name, she prays.

What does it mean to be a grandmother?
It’s an honor, a gift from above,
Where a grandmother can invest her greatest gift,
A heart of unconditional love.

 Being a grandmother means––You’re blessed!
With never a thought of regret.
 Treasuring each moment spent with them,
At the park, baking cookies, so content.

What does it mean to be a grandmother?
It means to love them from the very start.
To remind them of God’s great love for them,
And of heaven, where they’ll  never depart.

What’s the greatest gift, Grandmother, God has given to you?
You might say, “It’s my grandchildren!” and I understand why you do.
 But the greatest gift God has given to you is His unchanging love and mercies anew, 
The gift of grace, Christ dwelling in you.

Grandmother, cherish the moments God has given to you, sharing life with each child, for your moments are few.

Thought:  In 2 Timothy 1:5, Paul is reminded of Timothy’s sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in his grandmother Lois, and then in his mother Eunice, and now in him as well. I trust you will or already have invested in the lives of your grandchildren, a sincere faith that they may see Christ, the hope of glory, in you.


Happy Mother’s Day to all Mother’s and especially to “GRANDMOTHERS”!
