How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity.
It's no secret to any of you who regularly follow Meditations of My Heart that I'm one proud Gammie of three beautiful girls: Virginia Rose; Savannah Jane, and Alexandra Nancy. But what pleases me as much, if not more than being their grandmother is how swimmingly the three sisters get along.
Being only fifteen months apart, Savannah and Alexandra are practically joined at the hip. They play flawlessly together, keeping each other entertained and happy, sharing their toys, and allowing their mother, my daughter, Sarah, the opportunity to take care of daily chores. They even share the same gifts at Christmas without a shred of jealousy!
As much as they love playing together, Savannah and Alexandra really look forward to that time each day when Virginia comes home from school. They adore their big sister, and Virginia is so patient and loving with them. Sarah tells me she is such a dependable and willing helper when it comes to looking after her siblings.
Such good and pleasant times!
At least for now.
Because I can already envision those emotionally tumultuous tween and teen years for Virginia, when those little sisters, now all sweetness and light, morph into pesky pests. Sneaking into her room to read her diary. Teasing her unmercifully about a boyfriend. Pilfering her make up. I wonder how patient Virginia will be with them then?
But those days are in the distant future. So for now, I choose to enjoy each moment of their loving camaraderie and sisterly unity.
Such a joy!
Such a blessing!
When you were a child, did you get along with your siblings? How about your children or grandchildren?
