The legacy of a prayer warrior.

Published January 19, 2014 in Family, my life

Yesterday family from all across the nation gathered in the little town of Pine River MN. The purpose? A celebration of life service. Some families just have that something special that makes them unique. As our many family members and friends crowded into the little church, I looked around and saw what I believe would make grandma proud. I saw hugs, smiles, laughter. I heard the exchange of memories from years gone by (many of which included references to scrabble games and home made bread). With 27 grandkids in the family, plus a multitude of great and great great grands, it was fun to overhear little bits of conversations as family reconnected and genuinely inquired about one another’s lives. Grandma left a legacy. The pastor shared about the depth of grandmas faith, and how thankful she was that her children all have that faith. She prayed everyday for her family. For our families, for our health, and more importantly for our faith. She wanted us all to know what and why we believed. Thank you grandma Faith for the life you lived, the example you were. I know for myself, I hope to live more intentionally, to be a light. …and hopefully continue to play lots of scrabble!
