I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry The Blessing of Grandchildren

They fill my life
With exhaustion and energy,
Antics and anxiety.
(What will they try next?)
And with miles and miles
of hugs and smiles.

And lessons learned
Usually on the fly,
Me, as much as, or more
Than they.

I am filled with a satisfaction
wide and deep,
From simply being
in their presence,

Finding opportunities to share Jesus
Sharing a laugh, a hug,
a knowing smile.
Receiving back so very much
Love and joy and more
The very love of Christ
From the heart of
