Can’t beat this, y’all! Gorgeous Grandma Day falls on the same day as Vanilla Ice Cream Day on July 23, 2022? Say it is so! First, let’s talk about food.
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Does anyone here dislike ice cream?
To be honest, vanilla isn’t usually my first choice when it comes to ice cream flavor. I prefer praline or fudge or something nutty. Then I’d sprinkle even more nuts on it LOL. What about you?
Did any one of you grow up with ice cream trucks coasting down the street in front of your family home? My mom used to buy extra (IKR!) ice cream for us that way. On a hot sunny day in the tropics, there was nothing comparable to a cold drink and ice cream. No brain freeze!
When my son was growing up, he spent a considerable amount of time visiting his paternal grandparents. There were always cakes and cookies and ice cream involved.
What about you? When you visited your grandmother — or when your children visit theirs — do you consume more ice cream there than at your own house?
Are you a grandmother? How do you like being a grandmother?
I only remember my paternal grandmother because my maternal grandmother passed away when my mother was a teenager, so I have never met her. My grandmother was a very good cook and baker. My brothers and I always had delicious meals when visiting her. I ate everything she cooked.
My grandparents are all long gone now, and I sure do miss them.
Do you have happy memories of your childhood with your grandmother (and grandparents, for that matter)? Do share in the comment section.
Were you led to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ by your Christian grandmother?
In the churches we have attended, I pay special attention to godly grandmothers whose sons and daughters produced godly grandchildren. The Bible speaks of four generations of blessings, and I think that applies to grandparents who are faithful Christians in the Lord.
In my novel, His Longing Heart (Seaside Chapel Book 1), Ivan McMillan’s grandmother, Grandma Yun, is well into her nineties, and yet she faithfully attends church and ministers to the younger women the Lord brings her way. One of them is Brinley Brooks, who is seeking the meaning of life. Grandma Yun introduces her to Jesus, and Brinley gets saved.
In real life, I was led to Christ by a roommate in college. My grandparents were all unsaved. I was the first generation Christian in my family, but eventually, my parents also accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. In fact, my then young son was the one who wrote a salvation letter to my parents, setting up the preamble for my mother to be saved. Incidentally, my husband was also the first generation Christian in his family, and thereafter, he led his mother to the Lord.
Thank you for spending time with me on this Saturday that the Lord has made. If you’re a grandmother, I wish you a very happy Gorgeous Grandma Day. To everyone, have a fun Vanilla Ice Cream Day!
