Dream Weaver

I'm missing this sweet face more than I realized I would. She was a constant source of JOY. You could always count on Granny for a good laugh, or at a minimum, a smile. She had a gift for leaving you with a "full" heart! Always building you up, never, ever tearing you down....

I miss opening her trailer door during the holidays and seeing all of her decorations.... She was actually a Martha Stewart before we knew who Martha Stewart was. My absolute favorite decoration she made was the "Merry Christmas" string of cat food lids painted red and green! A close second would be the life size poster of an Angel she had stapled to her ceiling.

Since her Home Going in June, I have been gifted with a very special realization. When I'm missing her the most, I simply need to find the presence of God, because that is where I know she is!! Whenever we are having an especially beautiful time of worship at church, I know she is right there with me... with BOTH of her sweet hands lifted to the one she loved and served! I can almost her her cackle/giggle as the blessings rain from heaven! There was nothing she enjoyed more than being in the presence of her Lord! She would would say... "Glory, Glory, Glory..." Striaght from her heart!

She and Gramps are together for Christmas this year, so I hope you all find the presence of God this season to be especially joyous as you celebrate the one who has given us the blessing of knowing them on this side, and seeing them again on the otherside!

Psalms 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the Death of his saints....

Merry CHRISTmas everyone! ~Cindy

This is so sweet Cindy. I wish I could say the same thing about my grandmother, but I can't. I feel like I have missed out on this blessing of having this kind of relationship with my grandparents. It's good to read about the love that you all shared.
