We were sharing a hotel room with two of our young grandsons. I decided to have devotions before our bedtime prayer.
I took out the Gideon Bible from the bedside table and began reading from the book of John. I’d stop every 2-3 verses to answer questions or explain its meaning and then continue. We ended with prayer and a hug. Soon they were asleep.
The second night as they were putting on their pajamas the 7-year-old said, “Grandma, will you read to us again from the book of John?”
What music to my ears!
