Up To Know Good on Monday

January 15, 2007

Answering Machine & Phone

The phone rang, and Myron and I decided to let the machine get it. It was a hang up. A few minutes later, the phone rang again, and this time we decided to answer. “Hello?” a familiar voice said on the other end. “Sara? This is Grandma.” Myron grabbed another phone receiver, and the three of us talked for about twenty minutes. My eighty-one year old grandma told us how busy she was with household chores, card games, and meetings at church. She had more on her schedule than I did for the week!

Do Good - Pick up the phone and call a long distance loved one today. Don’t worry about how long it’s been since you talked; just call. If you don’t get through the first time - keep trying!

After we hung up the phone, I told Myron that I couldn’t remember the last time I’d talked to Grandma. I loved her direct approach and hearing about her full and busy life. Single for over eight years and with most of her grandchildren in other states, she has moved on to take pleasure in this stage of her life. And she is definitely enjoying it!

“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25. Click here to read more.

Jesus, thanks for this day and this time in my life. Help me enjoy every minute and not worry about the future or take myself too seriously!

Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.


I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
