Remembering Grandmother

One year ago today, my beloved Grandmother said goodbye to this world.  Her faith and trust in Jesus Christ ensures me that she is living with Him today.  Oh glory!  No more sorrow, no more pain for her here.  She is basking in His magnificence!  One day I’ll see her kind eyes and her gentle smile again and feel her warm hug.  For now, though, I just have the memories.  The precious memories.  These are the legacy she left for me.  Its worth more than gold to me.  Today I’m sharing some of the material things she left behind that bring me comfort when I use them, because I’m reminded of her…from the locket my grandfather gave her that I wear, her scarves that I love to dress up my daughters in, her cast iron skillet that cooked many a wonderful meals for her family (and now mine.  I like to think that her good skills in the kitchen rub off on me when I use her skillet), and the camera that she kept of my great grandmother’s (every heirloom was a treasure to her).  I pray that I’ll never let my children lose memory of her.  They are so blessed to have such a special great grandmother that they could gain so much from.  They’ll see so much of that in my mother, I know.  An unbreakable bond the three of us had: grandmother, mother and daughter.  Oh grandmother, I can’t wait until we’re reunited in Heaven!  I miss you so much!

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”

– 1 Timothy 2:1-6

School is back in tomorrow.  Those summer nights of staying up late are over.  Bookbags are packed.  New pencils are ready for their first sharpening.  Notebooks are ready to be filled with creative thoughts.  Little friends will share their summer adventures with one another and new friends will be made.  Rules will be set and enforced.  Speaking of rules, Matthew offers us what we’ve come to know as the golden rule.  On the eve of the first day of school, it seems fitting.  Have a blessed week. ♥

“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.”

I wonder what the Lord thinks sometimes when He looks down upon this earth.  Is He mostly pleased or mostly unpleased with our behavior?  Are we reinterpreting scripture to fit our social standards?  Are we trying to please one another instead of God?  He has a message – no a warning – for not obeying His word.  Hope you have a blessed week. ♥

“But you did not listen to me,” declares the Lord, “and you have aroused my anger with what your hands have made,and you have brought harm to yourselves.”

– Jeremiah 25:7
