Grandma's home going....

Today was a day of rejoicing and sadness. My grandma, who just celebrated her 90th birthday, went home to be with the Lord today. I rejoice that she is with her Saviour and that she no longer is suffering.... but I will miss her greatly. She was a very special lady and an awesome grandma!! Grandma and Grandpa would have celebrated their 69th anniversary this September. I am so proud of my grandpa for the way he tenderly cared for her, especially during her failing health over the last few years. He is such a strong man. I have watched him love her, protect her, care for her, and sit by her side. I love you grandpa.

I have often told my children how blessed they were to have 3 sets of great grandparents that they have gotten to know. They have been blessed with so many wonderful, godly examples as they watch their grandparents and great grandparents. I thank the Lord for the family He put me in and how much He loves me. I rejoice that one day we will all be reunited in glory!

This world is not my home I'm just passing through
my treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
the angels beckon me from Heaven's open door
and I can't feel at home in this world anymore

They're all expecting me and that's one thing I know
my Savior pardoned me and now I onward go
I know He'll take me through though I am weak and poor
and I can't feel at home in this world anymore

Just up in Glory Land we'll live eternally
the Saints on every hand are shouting victory
their song of sweetest praise drifts back from Heaven's shore
and I can't feel at home in this world anymore
