I had one of the hardest conversations with someone I love last week. The honesty that poured from their mouth has left me in prayer, on my knees, and regardless of how hard to hear... thankful.
We all need people in our lives that love us so much they have the “guts” to say the hard things. To speak truth, meet us where we are, and guide us to our knees. With a heavy heart; I post for the one that needs reminded of how much God loves you!
Reflections from my time in the word and with God this past week:
-Relationships with humans are complicated... you will be misunderstood, mistreated, hurt, and challenged, but God has placed every single himan in your life to teach you something! Love them and know some lessons in life are easier/harder than others!
-God may call you to arrive early and stay late... discerning the difference between God’s voice and selfish ambition is the key.
-Only God knows your purpose and when unsure of that purpose go to him!
-Follow God’s guidance and know sometimes you will say “no” to the demands and requests of others....
I had big plans for Great Gran on earth today! Over the summer we talked many times about how September was a big month for us. “Honey, you are too busy to throw a party,” Grandma would say. Then I would go on a tangent about not being busy and definitely not too busy for her.
Great Gran was stubborn, but so am I! I miss calling her on Friday or Saturday and telling her to be at the house at 5 for dinner and her trying to say no and me ending the call “I love you see you at 5” and hanging up. Pop and Great Gran would show up every time❤️ I miss her spunk, indecisiveness, consistency, calls, inspiration, encouragement, and wave. Happy Birthday in heaven Great Gran! I know your day will be great!
When we leave this earth to see Jesus those we love are left with memories. As we embark on a new season this month may we all be intentional in creating loving memories with those we love. We were blessed with a Great Gran that was intentional about creating memories with us and then sending us a thank you card for making the memory. I pray each of you have/had a loving and caring person who speaks/spoke life into your life so much you can feel/see them when they are gone.
