Loving the grandmother role!

Have you ever really thought about the wonderful way that God created the family and the roles
you are able to become in those families?  Now that I am older, I reflect more and think of  what ways I want to improve on my roles: child of God, wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, daughter, daughter-in-law,sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend!  I  see my granddaughter, Madeline, a few times a year, but I am determined to be a major part of her life.  I will just need to be more creative!  I am committed to praying for her.  I routinely pray for her heart, that it would be tender to Jesus when she is old enough to understand who He is and how she has a need for Him as her Savior.  I pray for her as the young woman she will become someday.  That she will have a passionate love for Christ and a desire to be obedient to His Word and that she will serve Him.  The times I am able to be with her, I will make her laugh and enjoy doing the things she wants to do, and I will share Jesus with her.  I will one day share with her what God has done in me and why I love Him so much!  This is the little girl that God has specifically placed in our family for His purpose.  I take my role in her life seriously because God has impressed this upon me.  I want to leave her a godly legacy, one that will drive her to JESUS all the more!
