Remembering Grandma

My Grandma went to be with Jesus yesterday afternoon. God continues to show His love and mercy to our family. I've thought a lot about Zeke in heaven yesterday and today. This picture is so special to me. My Grandma always lit up when she was holding Zeke--I can picture her holding him now and both of them smiling in the presence of the Lord.

Psalm 23 was my Grandma's favorite. My mom said that recently when their pastor read it to my Grandma in the hospital, she quoted it with him. What a beautiful picture for her now:

Psalm 23

God, my shepherd! I don't need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.

Even when the way goes through
Death Valley,
I'm not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd's crook
makes me feel secure.

You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.

Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I'm back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.
