An odd time, but God's time.

  Good morning, everyone! This is going to be a good week. I am going to believe the report of the Lord. He is good. He is just. He is a strong foundation. A rock when I need Him most and least. He is, He was, and always will be. He is the Great I am.

  My Grandma passed away Thursday. It was a surprise. She went into Code Blue (was unresponsive). We prayed for God to bring her back or heal her, but it was her time to go. It hurts. It will hurt. But it will heal. Death is not "the end, but the beginning of life" for believers. So I'm not sad for her. She is so joyful and happy. And she'll be there waiting to hug me when I get to Heaven. God is good.

  Grief is funny. This is the first time that I have lost someone close to me. So I'm learning to grieve, and I'm discovering something; grief doesn't work the same for anyone. We all handle it differently. But it's not fun to learn how to grieve. Really, I don't even like the word. But I guess we all have to go through it at one time or another.

  Some people cry through it all, some get angry and try to stuff it, others don't know how to grieve. But they still do. Some struggle to believe it's reality. They keep pressing through without changing things. They try to laugh through it, remembering the good memories. This is me.

   But through it all, God is working things out in me. It's good; but weird. An odd time, but God's time.

  Your prayers are welcome. Pray that God will bring this all about to glorify Him and that His love and comfort will surround me and my family.
   God Bless ya'll!
   You are precious in the eyes of God!
   Now go and have a blessed, wonderful week!
