Another Grandma Blog

The funniest thing happened on the way to bed last night.  As you may know, I have a new granddaughter born January 4, 2017.  Such a precious little one.  Her Mommy and Daddy are so proud that they are often sending me pictures of her for my picture gallery in my new Smart phone.  I have 3 other grandchildren that are teens and 1 that is in his 20's.  I am just as much in love with them as I am my newest granddaughter but for some reason I don't hear from them as often. Has it gotten to be that we take each other for granite so much that we forget to communicate and say I love you more often and to remind each other that we are a blessed family? So yesterday afternoon I challenged my grandchildren to keep up with baby Samantha.  Just as I was heading to bed, my phone started beeping.  Before I went to bed, I had a whole gallery of grandchildren pictures.  All I needed to do was ask. 

Now my question is, "Is that the way we are with God?".  When God was new in our lives, we wanted to communicate with him everyday.  But as the years went on we just said, "Oh well, God knows my need without me asking Him and He knows I love Him and I know He loves me. So I'll just go about doing the best that I can for Him and not take so much time away with communicating."  No, friend.  That is not what we should say.  We should be so anxious to talk with Him each day that it should be the first thing on our mind when we wake up and the last thing we think about before we go to bed.  (I think that is Biblical, isn't it?) 

Lord, I want you in my gallery of pictures just as much as I want my grandchildren.  I love you Lord and you are so good to me.  All my needs are provided but I still want to talk with you about how thankful I am.
