My Grandma Today

Last night my grandma went to sleep on this earth and woke up in God's light. Today she is pain free and tear free. Today she is reunited with her son, Gene who passed away about 24 years ago. Today she is reunited with her parents and others of her family who have gone before her. Today she is in the presence of the Lord. Today I am in praise and thanksgiving to my Lord and Savior who gave us the victory over death. Along with the many, many memories that have flooded my mind today, I have thought of this piece of scripture over and over.

I Corinthians 15:55 (The Message)
Death swallowed by triumphant Life!
Who got the last word, oh, Death?
Oh, Death, who's afraid of you now?...
But now in a single victorious stroke of Life,
all three—sin, guilt, death—are gone,
the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God!
For two more beautiful posts about my grandma, visit my sister, Elizabeth at Life's Journey with 5 and my cousin, Gretchen at Gretchen reads 24/7. Anymore family reading this? Feel free to leave a comment and if you have a website, I'll link us all together.

My thoughts are with you at the homegoing of your Grandma. I am sure there will be many tears in the next few days. Yet, happiness that she is in Heaven and free from the pain of this earth. I will pray for you. Our daughter died right around Christmas time 10 years ago - (12-13-97) I plan on doing a special tribute to her next week - for the holidays always bring back the memories of her homegoing also.
