|My Beautiful Grandma|
This morning I'm sharing my heart with you. I found out on Saturday that my Grandmother had passed away. It's one of those things you hear and it doesn't quite sink in until later. I think I'm still processing it, but at the same time I have a peace that I know could only come from the Lord.
She was such a wonderful woman. As I talk about in the "about me" section on my other blog, I owe my cooking and baking talents to both her and my mom. I would always be in the kitchen with her, creating something new and learning from her. Always learning.
Her blackberry pie will always be my favorite dessert and I owe my own pie making methods to her. I grew up spending a lot of time with my grandparents and I know that has played such a big role in my life. They taught me so much about life and being creative - whether it was in the kitchen or in the shop with Grandpa.
I will miss her (and already do) so much but know that I can rest in the fact that she knew Christ. I think about this and realize what a blessing that is. I will see her again and know that I do not mourn as if I had no hope. I am challenged to put my focus on the Lord and the reason that I can have joy and peace, especially as we come up on the Christmas season. I want to make sure and take every moment captive for what it is - a gift from God. He allowed me 26 wonderful years with my grandma and for that, I am extremely grateful.
I would covet your prayers for my family and I in this difficult time.
