God’s Handiwork

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. This week’s word prompt is “testimony.” We would love to have you join us.

Hand in hand, a legacy of love. Both sets of grandparents lived such a testimony of love. They both were married for 50 and 60 plus years, respectively. They are the example I strive for in the relationship I dream of. They lived out those words “for better or worse.”

Grandpa has always been such a hardworking man. It’s hard to believe that he’s been gone eight months already. His values are carried over in his children. As they farm the land, they testify and give testimony to those values their mom and dad installed in them.

My momma also is someone who I respect too. She lives her life as such a beautiful woman of faith; a testimony to who and whose she is. She carries God’s grace with her wherever she goes.

These souls are testimony to who God created them to be.

  1. I’ll never know the boon of age,
    nor the grace of family,
    But my soul was formed for days of rage
    and fell emergency.
    I stood when all others fled,
    because that was my calling;
    taking cash to risk me dead
    did not seem I was falling.
    But now I see I fell away
    from the homey hearthside life;
    and paid a price too high to pay
    answering siren-call of strife.
    There’ll be little mourning at my death
    in the legacy of what I might have left.

  2. What sweet testimonies of your grandparents (and mom). Sadly, I often overlook the impact my grandparents played on my life. I guess because they have been gone so long but even decades later, their lives continue to shape and influence mine.
