RHYMES AND REASONS
Tending the Family Tree
A grandparent's charge

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
September 24, 2021

A tender shoot sprouts from a tree
that's rooted in a trunk called me.
That little branch that bears my name
will grow into a limb.

And how it grows depends on much.
Their parents' guidance, friends and such.
But, Lord, I know Your grand design
includes grandparents, too.

How straight and strong that branch will grow
will be determined (I well know)
by words of blessing, loving touch
and what grandkids observe.

Lord, may my children's children see
Your Holy Spirit's work in me
through what I do and what I say
and how I make them feel.
