Grandpa and Grandma

A Poem By Libby // 12/15/2015

Taking a walk or hike won’t matter,
Her happiness will never shatter.
Reading poems for a talent show,
Makes her face turn all aglow.
She’s my Grandma, yes it’s so
My Grandpa wed her long ago.
Sixty years they’ve spent together
In hot, in medium, or in cold weather.
Grandpa dunking in the river,
I remember seeing him shiver.
He makes burgers on the grill,
And each day he takes a big pill.
He knows all kinds of plants and trees,
And to his flowers come lots of bees.
Grandpa taught me many things,
About trees, critters, or beasts with wings.
Grandpa and Grandma have influenced me,
To share God’s Word, and that’s the key.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬

Yay!

It's so good to see you posting Libby, and I loved reading about our Grandparents. It's too bad they couldn't come down this Christmas. I miss them.

I hope you keep posting more!

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!” -- John Piper
