|Granny-Great and Our Stephanie!
As we gather around the graveside to celebrate her life, there will be tears of happiness and sadness as we all know that we will see her again someday in Heaven.
Tracy writes a weekly devotion in her job at our church, the following is her tribute to Granny-Great in this week's devotion:
Readings: Genesis 50:15-21 / Romans 12:14-21 / Luke 6:36-42
Our reading from Luke includes this verse that reminded me of my sweet grandma. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” She gave food from her restaurant during the depression, gave wonderful care to her family, started Bible studies and crafting groups everywhere she lived, made lap robes and prayer shawls, card wreaths and soup for the hurting; she collected hundreds of teddy bears to give away, and I could go on…she lived her faith and loved her Lord. In her case, her giving was measureless and the Lord rewarded her in kind for 98 years. Yes, she suffered loss and disease as well as the miracles and blessings, yet she walked hand-in-hand with her Giver every day. Give…and hold tight to the One that gave His life for you.
Hopefully I will have some great adventures to share with you when we return. I hope your week is going great and thanks for stopping by!
