Words of Encouragement for the Sandwich Generation Real Estate Needs and Issues

by Kaye Swain

The Sunflower House has been so full of fun activities for grandparents and their grandchildren around here. Some of the blooms still haven't opened, while others are fading away – giving us a delightful hint of Autumn-to-come and a wonderful reminder of the power of the Word of God!

The Mammoth Sunflower fades - but the Word of the Lord endureth forever 1 peter 1 23 - 25

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth , and the flower thereof falleth away.  But the Word of the Lord endureth forever. And this is the Word which by the Gospel is preached unto you.

1 Peter 1:23-25

Just can't wait to start working on cute autumn country kitchen decorations complete with pumpkins, maybe some wreaths, and, if they last long enough, a sunflower or two – can they be dried, I wonder. Hmmmmm  🙂 Regardless, they won't last forever! But God's Word surely will. HOORAY 🙂

Very important scripture Kaye! Great graphics also. Everything around us is fading, decaying or aging. I am so thankful that His Word is eternal, and all-powerful!

Bless you dear one, this WFW!

Amen Amanda! As my baby boomer generation body keeps showing signs of aging as well, especially after a walk or some boomer and senior gardening. 🙂 Have a lovely Word-Filled Wednesday 🙂

Amen, His word endures forever.

I am loving seeing the hyacinths coming into flower, the trees budding but they are around for so short a time.
It is so easy to get caught up in the beauty of the temporary and miss the glory of the eternal.

Love that! You couldn’t have put it better or chose a better verse today!!

Wanda August 18, 2010 at 7:03 am

I like the picture you chose to compliment this precious verse. May things last only for a season but His Word is eternal.

Kaye August 18, 2010 at 7:31 am

Hi OzJane, You definitely have that right! 🙂

Kaye August 18, 2010 at 7:32 am

Sunflowers make a perfect photo this time of year!
I really associate them with August. Flowers may fade, seasons may change… but the Word endures forever!
Great verse from I Peter. Thanks.

Great Scripture and really good illustration! Since the Word of the Lord endures forever, if we put it inside us, we will endure forever! We have passed from death into life!
Have a wonderful day!

Kaye August 19, 2010 at 8:06 pm

Hi Renee 🙂 🙂 🙂

Blessings Kaye…

What a great illustration of this scripture! Poor droopy sunflower!

May the Word of God abide in us! May we be from incorruptible seed!
May we show fruit of being born again!

Looking forward to autumn but wish I was home to enjoy the wonderful, warm color changes and that fresh, cool breeze.

Looking forward to your autumn decorating. Thanks for your visit last week…sorry I’m so late (and I only had 6 to do but I had internet problems). Bless you for WFW tomorrow!

Kaye August 24, 2010 at 11:22 pm

Hi Peggy, I so know your pain about computer woes. Hope things are going much better. And thank you so much for popping over. 🙂

I absolutely love your blog.. Great colors & theme. Did you develop this
web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my very own blog and want to know where you got this from or exactly what
the theme is called. Thank you!
