Seems like I was just writing this yesterday! Wow...things are going too fast. A lot of my friends' kids have or are turning 16 this year and another of my grandkids, 18. The next generation is passing us by and we need to support and keep them in prayer often as we can. As for us too, times are only getting harder and it is up to us older generation, (speaking for myself!), to do all we can to direct them in the right paths. For all the grandmothers reading this, there is a excellent book given to me by a dear sister-in-law of mine, called Generation G, written by Marty Norman. It is excellent concerning the 21stcentery grandmother and what it means, great reading!!
