The Almighty sends heavenly creatures in every child's life, in the form of grandparents. They are God's precious gifts to humankind, designated to impart strength, wisdom, and love to their kids and pass it on from generation to generation. Their warmth and affection can be felt in their embrace and their love for us is reflected in their aging eyes. To honor and respect grandmothers, the United States celebrates Grandparents Day every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. Many poets have praised these exemplary creatures through their poems. Christian grandparents' poems are just a couple examples of people's love and fondness for their grandparents. In the following lines, we have enlisted some Christian grandparents' poetry that expresses love of a person for his/her grandparents.
Christian Grandparents Poetry
God's Gift of Grandparents
Grandparents are like honeybees;
They are the very sweetest.
They give you hugs and kisses,
And their stories are the neatest.
The honey they produce
Is more valuable than gold,
For this honey is the lessons
That we lovingly are told.
Grandparents want the best for us
And say we can achieve
Any goal that we have set,
If only we believe.
They help us spread our wings
So when we leave our honeycomb ,
We'll make the right decisions
Though we be away from home.
Yes, grandpas are like silver,
And grandmas are a gem,
But better than one hundred diamonds
Are the things I learn from them.
- By Alyssa Marie Bentham
Few can bring the warmth
We can find in their embrace,
And little more is needed to bring love.
Than the smile on their face.
They've a supply of precious stories,
Yet they've time to wipe a tear,
Or give us reasons to make us laugh,
They grow more precious through the years.
I believe that God sent us Grandparents
As our legacy from above,
To share the moments of our life,
As extra measures of His love.

God's Gift of Angels
She rocks another baby...
hums an age old lullabye
She hopes no one is watching
as with thanks, she starts to cry
Remembering the time
when the babies were her own
And her mother told her gently
too soon they would be grown
Lots of bedtime stories,
skinned knees, and tears to dry
Teddy bears, toy trucks and dolls
and kites up in the sky
First days of school, first loves,
the proms, the wedding days
Sand castles and snowball fights
and teaching them to pray
Now, as she holds her grandchild
and gives thanks unto the Lord
She knows to be a Grandma
is motherhood's reward!

Grandparents Day Poem
A grandparent is the grandest mom or dad,
Not just because of all the kids they've had;
They've seen and done and known so many things
We honor them like preachers, priests and kings.
They tell us of a way of life that's past
When the world wasn't moving quite so fast.
When the family sat together every day,
To eat, to laugh, to sing, to talk, to pray.
The road we walk now they have seen before,
The tears we shed, they shed a whole lot more.
They understand our feelings, joy or pain.
They know the path; they've walked the dusty lane.
What can we do to honor these dear Grands?
We have no gift to place in weathered hands,
To adequately show how much we care.
Or prove to them how great the love we share.
Yet there is something awesome we can do
To show beyond a doubt our love is true.
If what they've taught is seen in how we live,
This is the best gift we could ever give.
Happy Grandparents Day!
