Being raised as a Christian, I knew how much my family's faith in God meant to not only to me and my family, but to my grandma as well. I felt connected to my grandma not only because of her enduring love and faithfulness to those around her, but because of her faith in God. I always loved talking to her about God and discovering what her latest favorite Bible verse was. We were also always swapping Christian books, especially the historical romance novels. My favorites that we loved to read and talk about were Christy, Julie, and the Love Comes Softly Series by Janette Oak. I loved that later we were able to watch the Christy books by Catherine Marshall come to life on television and then years later also watch the Love Comes Softly series as well.
I will never forget my grandma and I will never forget her legacy of love. I will continue this legacy by spreading God's love, because that's what she would want me to do. I imagine my grandma now in heaven, with my grandpa and Jesus by her side. They are no doubt enjoying a beautiful day in the meadow talking about all about some of God's great mysteries that we don't yet know on this earth. She's walking the streets of gold and sending her love from heaven to her beautiful daughters who will always remember her lively spirit and journey of love.
Thank you for your legacy of love grandma - I will never forget you and I will love you forever.
