Spending Special Moments with Grandma

Oh, wait, I’ll give you a kiss…

And tell you a secret, too…

Is South Korea really so far away??  (Daniel’s parents leave tomorrow morning to go back to South Korea as missionaries.)

Oh, for a good camera right now! 🙂

    I hesitated to send this but you asked, is it too far away. Having been a Christian my whole life I do understand the importance of mission work. Having been a mother of four children who never had easy access to their grandparents I also understand the long lasting effects and negative impact it has. Grandparents have a special bond with grandchildren that parents never will. Looking back if I had to do it over again, my husband could have transferred around for his job and we would have stayed where the rest of my family, close to his family, and where they had the support of many people who love them, especially their grandparents. You can never make up that time and you can never develop the relationship by being apart.

    Beautiful pictures! I’m sorry Grandma has to leave, but you captured some awesome memories!

    My Mother-in-Law is getting ready to go on a mini-missions trip to Africa. This is the 4th time she is going. She is in her 60’s and she has a passion in her heart for Africa. We are expecting that she will one day stay longer to do whatever God calls her to do there. She has 22 grandchildren and one on the way. But is there anything greater than serving the Lord and doing His will? All that we give to Him, He will give back pressed down, shaken together and flowing over. I am so proud of my children’s grandma and so glad for the legacy she is leaving for them as she serves the Lord with all her heart!

    My goodness, what precious pictures.

    I’ll be praying for you and your family.

    God Bless!

    This struck a chord in my heart! In all of the visits home after marriage I never cried when it was time to leave – until last year. It was so hard to know that Martin wouldn’t be able to see his Grandpa and Grandma for a whole year. It’s far, but we’re where we’re supposed to be, and they’re where they’re supposed to be – and obviously the Lord gives peace in that knowledge. I must say however, Praise the Lord for SKYPE!!! We get on with my family at least once a week via SKYPE (sometimes more). Martin always just lights up with a big smile when he hears their voices and sees their faces!
    But I have a funny feeling that I’ll probably be boohooing the next time around anyway! =)

    I LOVED these pictures! Your darling obviously loves her grandma! And I am sure her grandma will not soon forget those chubby little arms around her neck and those precious dimples!

    My grandparents were long distance grandparents back in the day when letter writing was normal. We visited yearly, sent and received lots of letters and a few phone calls, and lots of love.

    Each family is different, and God gives grace for each one’s journey.
