We laid my grandma to rest yesterday and I’ve been thinking a lot about “memory” in the new year.
In memory of my grandma, we had several of her quilts displayed around the funeral home including the baby blankets she sewed for each of us grandkids. We lost my grandpa a couple years back, but they were married over 60 years. What a legacy! We talked a lot about great memories growing up, but our memories from the past few years aren’t the best. It is the hardest and most heartbreaking thing watching a loved one lose their cherished memories. We had lost my grandma long before, for she hasn’t known us for a long time. However, she never forgot John 3:16. They played a song at the funeral that was a little too close to home. Here are the lyrics:
She Still Remembers Jesus Name- The Booth Brothers
But she still remembers Jesus and His amazing grace
Still her children come most every day to see her
Yes she still remembers Jesus and His amazing grace
It’s a comfort to her family and it helps to ease their pain
