My Eyes Are On You…

wordfilled Wednesdaytag

Grace2

On this WFW I choose to use a picture I recently took of my grand-daughter Grace. When she comes to visit she loves to put on my glasses and pretend she is just like me.

She also wears my shoes, and loves to sit at my dressing table and imitate putting on her make-up just like her Grammy. Oh how precious these days are.smile_regular

In this verse, Paul lays out a challenge for us to live in such a way that others can see Christ, and will be inspired to follow our example.

I pray I will always be able to live a life before my children and now grand-children that reflects Jesus.

Please join us today over at The 160 Acre Woods.

Susan,

Oh, this is so precious, Susan!

Happy WFW!

Great reminder to set a good example for the little ones in our lives and the ones in the world around us. Your granddaughter is adorable! Happy WFW, Susan!

How incredibly SWEET!.... don't mean to point out age (some are sensitive to that kind of thing) ... but, I tell you what.... I want to be a grandma just like YOU! my children are ages away from having my grandbabies- but sometimes I can close my eyes and just smell their sweet baby-breath. (Am I silly or what!)

your grand-daughter is adorable, and from the looks of it she adores YOU- I love that!

Nice to meet you :O)

Blessings.
In Him, Deanna

She's a cutie. someone is always watching us...it is sobering...and important. Little eyes are watching!

Denise said...

As the apostile Paul said, follow me as I follow christ..... She is walking in your footsteps.....!! What a wonderful thing! My cousin is the manager of a Christian book store here in town and this year for Christmas I made her a Tee shirt that said .."Can't Turn Back Now, Someone Might Be Following" (she has wanted one for a couple of years now, and I finally got it made)

It is so true..... we do not know who is following!

Lisa said...

Yes! Yes! This thought keeps coming my way, especially as I think of following Jesus so closely that as my children follow me they see HIM!

Blessings!

Oh how precious, Susan! And what a wonderful reminder. We are always being watched. May we remember to live out our testimony and not just preach it.

Blessings Susan...How beautiful to take this scripture and match with your adorable, precious grand daughter....for she is Grand in Jesus' eyes and so blessed to follow after Him & you! Good choice!

Thanks for blessing us with your sweet photo! Makes us very aware that we need to be careful what little ears & eyes hear & see to FOLLOW...with YOU we don't have to worry! Very precious!

What a great verse! And if she's following your example, then it means you look over your glasses like that?? hehehee!! LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing.

Amen, Susan! What a timely reminder this is. That picture is absolutely adorable! Aren't they the most precious gift from a loving Father to us grandparents? What an appropriate verse to apply this wonderful truth of how they are watching us.
