I cherish moments like these. Watching Poppy walk across Starbucks with Katie to pick out some books to read. My little girl is so wonderful.

My heart jumps and delights at the sight of her. And I treasure these moments when she can experience her Poppy and feel the security of his love and acceptance. He reaffirms what I’ve already instilled. There is something incalculably valuable about multi-generational relationships. Something tangible like the warmth transferred from a handshake or a hug.

I am so blessed.

  1. I think that is one thing that is missing in the church body overall – valuing multi-generational relationships. (This is a personal pet-peeve of mine.) Many of the older style churches value the mature older people and frown upon the young generation. Many of the more modern style non-denominational churches seem to value the young generation – that our only hope is what the young people can do for our future. I believe we each have a purpose regardless of age. If we’re still breathing, God still has something for us to give away. The purpose for our congregations or small groups cannot be fulfilled until we walk together in unity with all generations represented. I love that I have friends from many generations. It adds a richness and depth to my life!
