GRANDPARENTS, WALK AND PRAY, WALK AND PRAY! 6/07/09
We celebrated our granddaughter’s first BD this weekend
and the Lord honored my heart with a precious gift. I
bought her a baby doll stroller that had wide sturdy
wheels that was like a walker to help her learn to walk.
Although I was in a painful flare in my body, I had
gone to Wal-Mart and it was very hard for me to walk to
the back of the huge store to find the toy and then
stand in line to purchase it.
The doll sized stroller was quite precious, and I also
purchased a little baby doll to ride in it. I spent a
LONG time on my miserable feet trying to put the whole
thing together with screws, because Wayne was sick. I
wanted her to have the joy of opening a gift and not
having to wait for her Dad to put it together, since he
is very busy. And I really, really wanted to see my
granddaughter walk for the first time.
While dropping screws right and left and putting the
wrong frame on backwards onto the wrong piece, I said,
“Lord, this is a labor of love for my baby
granddaughter, please help me!” The instructions were
just not making sense with the piece that I had in my
hand. It was then that I found the missing piece hiding
behind the box and I needed to re-screw everything back
into the right order.
With the background above, you can well imagine my joy
when the moment our precious baby granddaughter opened
it, she pulled herself up, hung onto the handle and
started WALKING! I was totally THRILLED AND SHOCKED,
knowing this was a personal gift of the Lord as He had
helped in my efforts with this labor of love.
You should have seen the look on her cute little face.
She was SO happy and SO proud of herself! She was
suddenly upright like the other children and she knew
CONFIRMATION ANOINTED CLICKER AND EYE GLANCE: I
had a longing to hear from the Lord tonight as I was not
hearing Him as I wanted. So I opened up the website
page to the Most Recent Posts and I took the right hand
mouse and pulled the scroll bar down to the place where
my eye glanced. I moved my hand straight across from
where the mouse stopped and it was the following Post.
God is just SO amazing with how He speaks in so many
wonderful ways. I had completely forgotten this post!
REPORT WHAT YOU SEE
By Phil Russell
On my morning walk I saw an old retired couple outside
behind their home. They were both inspecting a baby
stroller as if making sure they had figured it out
correctly. This is something they have not done in a
As I rounded the corner I saw another elder couple
pushing a baby in a stroller. They were out for their
morning walk, headed toward town.
When I got to the next corner I saw yet another set of
retirees pushing yet another youngster in a stroller
headed to town.
These new strollers are sure different than the ones we
had so many years ago. Three bigger wheels instead of
four and they look more maneuverable and built for speed
and ease of travel over rougher ground.
QUICKENED GRAMMY CONVERSATION 6/06/09: When I
read the above post, the Lord reminded me that at the BD
party, I had a conversation with our granddaughter’s
other Grandma. Her whole family are wonderful
Christians and we are so very grateful for that. I
spoke to her about our prayers being very important in
covering our grandchildren. I mentioned that I had
always heard testimonies of how grandparent’s prayers
made a difference for children being saved, and coming
into their inheritances, but did not really understand
the role until I became a grandparent.
I mentioned how we are just as bonded with our grandkids
as we are with our children, and when we babysit them we
are intimately involved in relationship with them. But
then, there is a rending of our heart strings when we
give them back to their parents. Part of us is relieved
we don’t have to do it full time, but the other part is
that we miss our grandkids when they are gone. As a
result, we muse over the character concerns that crop up
during our times with them. As parents, we were always
directly involved with hands-on in helping train them.
However, as grandparents, the only recourse we have of
resolving our concerns is to PRAY. It is as though we
are driven to prayer, because we can’t help our
concerns, and we can’t directly fix them like a parent
would in giving a direct and immediate attention.
UPDATE CONFIRMATION 6/08/09: After all of this, I
received an email today from one of my spiritual son’s
who saw 2 visions about me. He saw them on the same day
of the BD party. He saw my name connected together with
the first name of our granddaughter’s other Grandma. He
had no idea who that person was, and the spelling of her
name was also perfect. In the second vision, he saw a
manual I had written about our joining together to bring
about revival and also fight against the enemies. The
theme of the manual was about how to raise up the kids.
It was perfect for what the Lord had been speaking to me
Isa 54:13-14 NKJV
All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and
great shall be the peace of your children. In
righteousness you shall be established; You shall be far
from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from
terror, for it shall not come near you.
