A New Home in Heaven

On Friday, May 30th my maternal grandmother passed away in a tragic car accident. My dad called that afternoon to tell me the devastating news. It was so unbelievable to me because my grandmother was in good health. At 72, she was very independent and was experiencing the best years of her life. I had last seen her on Mother’s Day, May 11th, never once thinking that it might be the last time. My grandmother was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. I am so thankful for the time that I was able to spend with her here on earth and the lasting memories that I have of her. I rest in the hope that I will see her again someday in the presence of our Lord. She was a testimony of what God could do with one who comes to know Him later in life. Please pray for my family as we deal with this loss. Our lives won’t be the same without her.

“For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down—when we die and leave these bodies—we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:1
