Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her -Proverbs 31:28
This post may turn out a little emo, forgive me for that. It's been a tough week.
And all the praise and glory to God. I will sing hallejuah. For the King has carried the cross He has risen from the grave ♥
Dear Grandma Betty, you loved me and taught me love. I love you so much and can't wait to see you with our Father in heaven. Rest well Grandma ♥
It's just that horrible heartache that you wanna let out, but it hurts to do so. Daddy God, give me strength.
Saying goodbye is so hard, but I guess keeping the memory of beautiful Grandma Betty will be easy. God is my comfort and strength. Thank you friends for your prayers. ♥
When I was 8, Grandma Betty used to buy me a bag of cotton candy every few weeks. Now I'm 19, and she bought me a small container of cotton candy and sent it over recently. I still have some cotton candy left in the container. I miss her.
Getting hit with a family tragedy so suddenly certainly is a first. I don't know what I would have done had I been put in the position.
Between my family and I, we've shed more tears than we've probably had in our lives over this past week.
But God gives and takes away. While He has taken away my beautiful maternal Grandmother, He has given us her love before she left, and given us stronger family ties after she left.
Having my extended family, my uncles, aunts, and all of us 9 cousins together for 5 days straight has been quite a wonderful experience. Much needed. Something that should've been done earlier.
This week I also had to learn the hard way that things are really much more complicated than they may seem. It sucks to know, and it sucks that I'm old enough to understand sometimes.
I need to be strong. I need to lean on God's grace and mercy and love.
And I know that as much as it hurts really bad in my heart, I cannot let myself be dragged down by it. God has not given me a spirit of fear or timidity, but a spirit of power and love and self-discipline. "...Never will I leave you; Nor will I forsake you..." -Hebrews 13:5
