My Grandma Wood Passed Away...

at the age of 84 without much warming to us, and is now hanin' with Jesus!

My Grandma was absolutely a child of God and it was obvious in her daily life. 

I am very sad and have been crying off and on for the past few days.  I am very sad for my Mom who lost her Mommy.  I'm sad for her children and grandchildren who lived near her and will feel her absence more than I.

She was the center of our family gatherings that took place frequently throughout the years.  Those will feel and be very different. 

Christmas will feel "off".

Actually, she wasn't even at Thanksgiving - because they were on their way to my Mom's and they drove straight to the ER because she felt very weak.

And we all sat around talking about her most of the time.

She will be greatly missed.

But, according to her faith and mine, I believe she is so amazingly happy right now.  I can just picture the smile on her face and hear her laugh as she dances with Jesus and visits with people who have gone before her.

Grandma, I'm so grateful you were my Grandma here on Earth.  I am thankful you were a woman of faith and such a positive example to your children, grandchildren and community.  You were absolutely an Earthly example of God's love.  Thank you for the investment you made in your family, the smile that was always on your face and the jokes and laughs you blessed us with.

I will see you again someday!  Until then, I'll keep doing my work here and spreading God's love - like you did.

  1. So sorry to hear about your grandma. Prayers and hugs to you!!

  2. Continuing to pray for you and your family! As I read this post, I thought to myself, "Hey, maybe our grandmas just met and are dancing with Jesus together!!!" :)

  3. Thank you, Myah. I miss her so much!!! I just want to talk to her!! I pray that she helps us to find the peace that we need. She is absolutely with Jesus, and Ian, and finding all of her family and friends, I am sure.

    I love you,

  4. Myah,
    You are right it is very hard for me when we drive by her house and we are so used to her being there. I miss her so much and still cry every day.


  5. I am catching up with my website readings. I am SO so sorry to hear about your grandmother! The women in your family are an inspiration to people around you! I am sure she is being missed by many people. Praying for you and your family.....

  6. It is still so hard to be without Mom 7 months later. Sharon and I cried this morning about her and how we miss her. Thanks for your love of Mom.
