Scripture & a Snapshot - Week 80


1-corinthians-15-22-wm


Thursday I flew to Iowa to spend time with my family and today I attended my Grandma's funeral.
She suffered with cancer for the last several months and, in a way, her death was a relief. 
It's easy to grieve her passing...she was a wonderful woman who loved everyone that walked through her front door and she welcomed them as I imagine Christ would.


 And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.
1 John 4:17


Yet now she has been transformed! She is living a pain-free life with our Creator!


What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever.
But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed!
1 Corinthians 15:50-51


While I'm sad she's gone, I do not wish to take away her amazing experience of going home and meeting Jesus face to face.

  2. So sorry to hear about your grandma passing Katie. Love what you say here, through your own words and scripture. The way you did the scripture and photo are just lovely. And I take long walks to Mercy Me, that song is one of my favs. Praying comfort in the grief for you tonight.
