Mind Flood

These past few weeks… And days have been bringing floods of emotion.

It started in August with the death of my step-mom, Phyllis. Off to Texas where we were able to be with my two brothers, dad, and father-in-law. A quick trip for the funeral.

Now, I’m waiting to fly the second part of a “Redeye” connection for my grandma’s (maternal) funeral.

Now add this layer. A great friend, everyones mom/grandma passed away within 15 minutes of my grandmother. Back to California for a Saturday funeral – No, a CELEBRATION of LIFE!

Hurting? Yes!

But all three will be there in heaven to meet us!

Jesus has given us strength and great hope!

Funny Grandmother and Saturday Review

My Grandma Ruth is hilarious. She’s 91 and aging, that’s for sure… but I could listen to her for a long time. She had Ginger really laughing by saying such random stuff.

Saturday we arrived just fine, drove from Chicago to Rockford. We had lunch with my brother, Steve, and one of his three sons, Michael, who is in 7th grade. Steve was driving through town and we’ll see him again on his return trip on Monday.

Right now is Sunday morning and in a couple of hours Ginger and I will be ministering at my mom’s church. Pray for us (if you read this in time) that the Lord will allow his servants to be instruments of His choosing.
