The simplicity of playing with grandma’s kitchen utensils. No knives of course – that comes later with grandpa.
Many things come to mind when we watch our grandson, here’s one:
“And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life. . . .” – Matthew 6:27
Sovereign Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, give my heart the contentment and peace of a child who sits and plays free from anxiety and fear. Help me to believe that you care more about my day than I do for this child. This baby can no more fuss and fret his way into a longer life than I can – remind me today that I am just as helpless. Free me from worry and unbelief, in your name I pray, Amen.
When our grandbaby comes to visit I get out the crock and pour dry Cheerios in it and she entertains herself for a long time. She also likes opening the drawer on the coffee table and getting things out of it. Most of the time it isn’t toys that they do play with. 🙂
