In Good Company
Having sustained severe injuries due to a fall on Friday, my mother passed on to God yesterday afternoon at 3:20. As we talked with our girls, we cried and rejoiced that “grammy” was not only reveling in the love and delight of God, but that she could see all of the angels and meet Moses, David, Rahab, Samson and Paul, as well as her own mother. She's in good company, and she has only just begun.
Emma said, “You know how I see Grammy? I see her in a sparkling silver dress that’s too short, and she’s dancing with Jesus. And He has on platform shoes.”
We prayed for my dad, who has health issues of his own. He is to receive a pace-maker today, which we hope will add vigor to his days.
I will travel today to Los Angeles, and Sarah and the girls will follow on Thursday. The service for my mother will be on Friday.
We appreciate your love and welcome your prayers.
