It was a big weekend. In celebration of my mom’s upcoming 80th birthday, (yes, 80th!) four generations gathered for the weekend.
- We told jokes. (What do you call Batman when he skips church? Christian Bale!)
- We feasted. (If you live in Houston, check out Campioni on Cutten Road.)
- We played games. (My nephews introduced us to Exploding Kittens and Nintendo Switch.)
And we marveled at the goodness of the Lord.
Four generations. How time flies! How family grows! Just a few days before our gathering, I came across this verse:
“We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord” (Psalm 78:4b).
I now have two “next generations” below me, and so I’m asking you, my readers, to help me finish this blog installment by answering a question:
How have you told the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord? (Or how did your parents, grandparents, friends, or mentors do so? Or how do you intend to tell of His goodness when you have the chance?) Remember, you don’t have to be a family member to give or receive the blessing of such a telling.
Please share your thoughts. Tell this new grandmother the creative ways in which she can pass the good news down to future generations. And as you do so, consider sharing your thanks with those who have done the telling before you.
Thank you, in advance, for the good advice I hope to receive!
