I have, after a long two and a half weeks, returned home from my trip to to visit Granny.
The first week of my trip was spent spending time with and caring for my grandma, who was on in-home hospice and living at my moms house. I am so glad I was able to be there and help care for her. Her desire was to remain at home as long as she could, and because we all pulled together, we were able to make that happen.
Grandma passed away on August 20, 2009, and will be sadly missed.
God brought our family together during this time, and reminded me of how important relationships are, and that they will not be around forever. He reminded me that the most important thing I will leave behind when I leave this earth is...
the way I loved others.
I pray that everyday, I will receive more of a revelation of His love for me, so that I am able to love Him and others more fully and completely.
After all, we cannot give what we have not received, and,
life is to short, not to love.
I know that grandma has finally met Jesus and is dancing on golden streets with Him. I know that she is finally complete and whole, no more suffering, every tear wiped away. I can only imagine what she must have felt meeting Jesus...WOW!
I do know that I will be with her, much longer than I have to be with out her.
However, Knowing this does not make me miss her any less.
I want to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart to all you who left me encouraging comments and prayed with and for me and my family during this time. Your prayers were definitely felt and welcomed over the last weeks.
Now, that I am home, I will be getting back into the swing of things and I will soon be posting again regularly. I am also looking forward to coming by to visit you all again soon.
As of Today...
