I know this is a couple days late but I just wanted to say…Happy Birthday to my precious Granny who would have been 93 years old on Wednesday but who went to be with the Lord on January 6, 2002. I think about her a lot, particularly when I wear her sunglasses (which is often),
or hear this:
Jeremiah 17:9 (King James Version)
9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Pastor Stan included this verse in our wedding homily and I started laughing when he quoted it. Laughing – as in, you can see me laughing on the video! I’m sure Pastor Stan thought I was losing it because that verse is no laughing matter! But I just loved that the verse made it into our wedding! Whenever I come up with some particularly devious scheme, I always hear Granny’s voice in my head telling me that verse and I pull back.
So thanks for keeping me on the straight and narrow, Granny! I love you!
Selah would like a smiley. I remember her first pair of white sunglasses that got lost. I was so sad cause I loved them. 😉
I, too, enjoy having special items to remember loved ones with…On another note, we made your feta green beans last night for dinner. All I can say is YUM!Love, Karyn
LOVE that picture of you, Laura! Thank you for remembering Granny. So often I see her sweet face in my mind, or hear her voice. I love my mama!
I’m sad I didn’t get to meet Granny. In some ways Jon was a bit happy I hadn’t simply because we started dating only a couple months before she passed away and he didn’t feel I would have met the granny that he grew up with since she was so weak then. She sounds like such an incredible woman.On the note of Jeremiah 17v9…any time a speaker mentions or refers to the verse in class we look at each other and start to laugh. She certainly left a legacy!
