Grandma turns 90

a Biblical thought...
They had a story to tell, too: "And just look at what's been happening here—thousands upon thousands of God-fearing Jews have become believers in Jesus! But there's also a problem because they are more zealous than ever in observing the laws of Moses. (Acts 21:20)

a Book thought...
Jesus reminds us that people are more important than property, power, programs or prestige. (p116 Frost)
a Dave thought...
Yesterday I was at the biggest family function I have ever attended, my Grandma's 90th birthday. Grandma has five children, one of whom is my father Wes, 13 grand children, and 29 great grand children, and in September she will be come a great great grandmother!

But it is not purely the great offspring she will be admired for. Grandma is a beautiful, gentle, humble Christian lady who has always lived an amazingly selfless life. My dad proudly told stories at the party how they were brought up in a loving family that although they had little grandma would all she can to ensure that her children had the best she could offer at all times. Over 50 years ago she held the position of Primary leader at the Redcliffe corps and to this day still attends the Unley corps every Sunday morning. I thank God for such a wonderful grandmother and for the positive example she has been for us all.

Just a thought.
