family · Hope · Thanks

memorialized…

Saturday… a gathering of family… to honor the memory of the elder-in-law…

No formal service… for the one who saw the celebration of his 90th as a eulogy…

Children… grandchildren… great-grands… together to visit… remember… eat… and share hearts…

And that was the most beautiful part… the hearts shared… many transparent to me… for the first time…

Laughter… tears… hugs… thanks… all shared honestly… openly…

Blessed by the time… to get to know better… the family I’ve been a part of for over 27 years…

Grateful for the man… who made possible my husband… and kids…

Thankful for an opportunity… to share my experience with the elder-in-law… and the Word…

Prayerfully hopeful… for the future… of his children… grands… and greats…

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13 ESV
