Finishing the Race

Earlier tonight, actually about an hour and a half ago my Grandma finished the race. She is in Heaven now. I'm not sure what to write or how to write it, but I do know that my hope is in Christ and so was her's. She passed away quietly after a week long battle with some medical issues.

She was such a blessing to me, she had a contrite heart and was a servant of servants who also had a heart overflowing with generosity. She paid my way to New York by herself!

Our household is doing well. I was leading witnessing tonight when I got the text message. It struck me at first but that was quickly followed by a peace that surpassed my understanding. I expected to come home to a weeping house, but instead everyone was about their business, although a little somber. My mom is doing incredibly well. I don't want to sound morbid but I'm glad she passed away; she is with her husband again but she is also with her first love, Jesus.

So please pray for our family if you find time to remember. We appreciate it.
