My Dear Grandma

I just love her...

I intend to post a blog about grandpa's memorial service, with some pictures.

But, till I can get to that, I just had to share this picture of my little grandma.

This was the day of the service for grandpa. She was getting ready to go home after a very long day, when I captured this. I was struck by her class and poise... and by the fact that at almost 89, she's still comfortable in her high-heeled pumps!

I thought she looked beautiful and dignified.

This is my grandma when she was in her 20's. She was beautiful then, too!

As lovely as she is to behold, she is twice that on the inside. Like the rest of us, she's not perfect; but she loves her Lord with all that is in her, and it shows ...she lives a graceful, Spirit-filled life. I esteem her.

Someday, I'll tell you more about her, too. But, for tonight, that's all. Time eludes me.

I know, Dot! Truly blessed... and I don't take it for granted. :-D

You are so blessed to still have your grandma with you! Mine have all passed on and I still miss them so much.

So good to see you blogging again!
