In Memory: Her Sunglasses

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!

    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!
