Pray, Please

Hi everyone!!

As most of you know, both of the great grandmother’s I ever knew, passed away…

So can we get some prayers, please!!

Thank you so much!

Saddened

I am truly saddened by the impact of death.

You can never see your loved ones again.

Memories last forever, though.

And you can always look back, but you can get lost.

This was one of my Gramma’s last requests:::

Tommorow Never Comes

If I knew it would be the last time that I’d see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly, and pray the Lord your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time that I’d see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss, and call you back for just one more.

If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would tape each word and action, and play them back throughout my days.
If I knew it would be the last time, I would spare an extra minute or two,
To stop and say “I love you,” instead of assuming you know I do.

So, just in case tomorrow never comes, and today is all I get,
I’d like to say how much I love you, and I hope we never will forget.
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.

So, if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day
That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss,
And you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear,
That you love them very much, and you’ll always hold them dear.
Take time to say “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” “thank you” or “it’s okay”.

And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.

In Memory of her lost child…

Be Still.

It’s a hard concept for me… being still. I know God is Who He says He is. I know He is always doing something even when it can’t be seen. Even still, I can’t shake the feeling that I should be “helping” the process, giving it a little extra oomph if you will. I wouldn’t want to appear lazy or uninvolved. I wouldn’t want people to think I wasn’t doing all the things. I need them to know I can. And there it is. There’s the lie that I’m always believing. The moment I get involved, I undermine God’s heart for provision and protection, and I snag a piece of the glory pie. It isn’t mine to share and it isn’t really that tasty anyway. My pride gets fat and my spirit gets weary. If it’s not about Jesus, about seeing Him glorified, then I’m selling everyone short in the…
