  1. There is a epidemic of adult children abandoned their parents, estranging themselves and refusing to allow them to see their beloved grandchildren. I am in this sad boat myself. Please pray that this would be the year these adult children are convicted of their sin and return from their prodigal wanderings. Thank you.

    1. Dear Sojourner,
      I am aware of this epidemic and that is one reason I write about this subject.

      There are many good Christian parents who have been unfairly criticized, marginalized, and mistreated by their adult children, many of whom call themselves Christians while showing no regard for God's commands about honoring parents.

      Yes, and many of them are using grandchildren as pawns to manipulate and further marginalize grandparents.

      I am so sorry for your pain, and I pray that your adult children and others will wake up and see those things that are important to the heart of our Father God.

  2. Yes. About 3 yrs. ago my older daughter (late 30s) literally abandoned her Aspergers sister (now 23) and me. We have only God and are so poor that we MUST rely on God every second! If not for Him, we would be dead. While I am so sorry for parents suffering this, at least I know I'm not everything she says as she lies.

  3. To add, I haven't seen my grandson in many years. I never thought my own daughter could do this. Wishing all of you a blessed Christmas.

    1. Dear friend,
      There are so many parents suffering as you are, and the pain is very deep. I am so glad that God is sustaining you. I pray that your daughter may realize what she is doing and turn from it and let you see your grandson.
      God bless you.

  5. One problem I have is no matter how hard I reach out and honour my Dad, it seems it is never good enough. I try to call and he won't answer. I text no answer.
    How do you honour someone that doesn't acknowledge that you are trying?

    1. I'm sorry you are having this response from your father. I would encourage you to pray about how often God wants you contacting your father, and then do it for the Lord even if you have no response. You will also need to pray against bitterness (I'm sure I would need to do that). But know that you will be an example to others and you will be pleasing the Lord. And I pray your father will eventually respond and appreciate his daughter.
      God bless you.
