My Grandma had a stroke a few weeks ago and today she was able to come home. My sister, the kiddos and I went to visit she and my Grandpa this afternoon and we took her some flowers in a mason jar. Mason jars always make me think of her. This remarkable woman has contributed so much to who I am…she means the world to me. What a blessing that my children get to visit her and my Grandpa in the same house I grew up running around in. What a gift that my kids get to know them. What a picture of God’s grace in my life.
On the way there I was tempted to wonder as I drove the same familiar, rural roads I’ve driven hundreds of times to see them…how much longer I will we be able to make these visits?
On the way home after a wonderful visit the golden sun was setting over the freshly harvested Ridge. I was filled with such peace. We have today. And it’s a gift.
God’s got this!
All the chaos, all the noise, all the fear…He is so far above it. I am so grateful that He alone gives the peace that passes understanding.
