Grandparent's Day Anticipation
- Grandparent's Day beautifully follows Creation Week because you're already dwelling on how God used your ancestors to introduce you into His story. In the same way, you can look forward to celebrating God's plan for your family next year.
- As you dwell on your family history, you won't be able to escape the sin in every generation. This recognition can prepare your heart for the Day of Atonement.
- Grandparent's Day is a natural springboard for thoughts of Mother's Day, Father's Day, Daughter's Day, Son’s Day, Children's Day, and Family Day.
- It's very possible that at least some of your grandparents are dead. Though this isn't a joyful thought, it's a necessary consideration as you enter Halloween and meditate on the consequences of sin and the need for a Savior.
- Whether your grandparent's ever served in the armed forces or not, it's an easy step from considering your grandparents to thinking of those who have gone before you paving the way for your freedom. Veteran's Day is just such a day.
- Allow Grandparent's Day and the gratitude you have for the way God has used them in your life to direct your thoughts to Thanksgiving.
- As Grandparent's Day naturally draws your mind to the past, it will be easy to meditate on the historical events that lead to Christmas, Passion Week, Easter, Ascension, and Pentecost!
- Allow your love for your grandparents and the love from your grandparent's to joyfully look forward to Valentine's Day.
- It's very possible that your grandparent's lived in much more sustainable ways than many people today. This can cast your mind forward to your celebration of Stewardship Day.
- Maybe your grandparents were Christians, and maybe they weren't, but it's possible they valued the Bible as an important book. Consider this as you anticipate Scripture Day.
- Praise God for the coming Consummation. Not only will sin, sickness, death, and hell be forever removed form the life of believers, but you will once again be reunited with your believing loved ones who have gone before.
