Word Filled Wednesday Psalm 62:5

The purpose of Word Filled Wednesday is to share the WORD through a photo and a verse.
This week is a restful Psalm and a simple pine casket.


My Grandmother lived a long life. During her life she made it pretty clear where her political and religious views were. She had been hurt by Christians in her past - and unfortunately feelings tend to determine how we live out our lives. Her final ceremony on earth was a traditional Jewish burial.

I mourn the loss of my Grandmother. I will miss her calling me Angel, and loving me like I was the only one that mattered in the moment. Mostly I will miss any and all opportunities to continue to share my faith, and what God has done for my family. Only the Lord knew my Grandma's heart - and in that I can find peace.

Friends, it is NEVER too late to accept the gift that God gave us - his gift of eternal life.

Beautiful post Alexa.

i still have a few chances with my grandmother, but sometimes she misses it b/c she can't hear so well!

Beautiful, simply beautiful. And hopefully a reminder to all of us Christians that we NEED to continue to share our faith. All the time.

Praying for you, Lexie. You are a dear!
