The day that Granny passed away my friend Rachelle (from my church)
came and brought us breakfast and stayed most of the day with me. She let me talk and cry.
I can't even list the emails, cards, and gifts. There are so many. I have to tell you what a blessing all of you that bought a quilt from Granny were to her. It all started by Martha emailing and asking if Granny would consider selling a quilt to her. That started the snowball of Granny selling her quilts here on my blog. I didn't even try. We have record of 79 quilts being sold here on the blog. Many would email and just tell me to pick one out for them. Granny would always tell me thank you but I told her it was her that sold the quilts....not me. I encourage you to go to Martha's blog and read here and here! So precious.
And then I have to thank YOU for all of the condolences for Granny. I am sure she is reading them and is so proud. If you would like to read or sign Granny's Guest Book you can go Here! Look for her name, Beulah Gribble- click on it- go to guestbook. The Funeral home will be mailing the Guest book to our family after 30 days. Thank you so much.
SNIPPETS FROM MY HEART
I have been wondering what the Lord is trying to show me. You all know that I am walking through a trial but it is quiet right now. It is still there though. Before Granny (My Dads Mother) passed away I was listening to that still small voice and I was hearing from the Lord. There is no doubt in my mind. Then I was shocked when Granny left us. It was like my life was put on pause for a few days. I went on with life but wondered why. Yes, I know that she was 96 years old but I did not expect this at all. The same thing happened when my Grandma (my Mothers Mom) died several years ago. I just got so used to going to see them that this just doesn't feel natural. But it was their time. I don't like it. But who am I? Anyway, as I shared with Julie this afternoon.......I have been asking myself what the Lord is trying to show me. I have been praying and reading my Bible trying to get answers. Well I started reading this book, "The Excellent Wife". As I read the first part of it and how it talked about our relationship with the Lord and our husbands, I realized what HE is trying to show me. HE is showing me that HE is GOD! It was a light bulb moment when I realized this. HE is GOD! I am not in charge. HE is!
HE is GOD!
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
