Please pray

Please pray for us. My Granddaddy passed away on Sunday. What an amazing man he was! And now my Dad is mourning the loss of two parents (Grandmom died in April). We were very, very blessed to have them both until they were in their 80s. And we were very blessed to watch them enjoy a rich relationship with Christ. We are leaving to go out of town this afternoon.

More about my sweet Granddaddy later...

My grandfather passed away 2 years ago this November. We had enough warning to be able to gather for the end, but still, it was very stressful and emotional.

It's very hard to see your parents sad - especially your dad. I think that was the hardest part for me. It was wonderful to attend such an honoring funeral - when you have a loved one die who leaves behind a faithful legacy it is very inspiring. It really makes you want to see more clearly and live more purposefully.

But still reality is there when you come home again, and sometimes it IS stressful and emotional and difficult. I'll pray for you tonight, and your family, to experience help and peace in the days to come.

Love,
Jen
