Lately, I've been doing even more Bible study than I usually do (as you will see from some of my coming posts that I will be sharing). There is just so much to grasp! Each day I am amazing at what I hadn't seen before, at what the Lord chose to save for a specific time in my life.
Last week our our Grandmother was unexpectantly taken to the emergency at our local hospital with heart trouble. We were all quite shocked as our Grandma has always been the picture of health and has certainly never had any heart complications. This particular night, I had been quite distraught in my behavior before hand. Complaining about meaningless things, having a little pitty-party all of my own, until it started to rub off on the rest of the family that unfortunately happened to be home. Then, after hearing the news of my precious Grandma's condition, I began to see how silly I had been, and how foolish really, I had become. Dwelling on things that had zero matter in the realm of true reality, I was humbled. Our Grandma is such a strong lady, whom I try to imitate her kind behavior and love for people. I realized, once again, how unlengthy life is. Sure it can be hard (we all can testify) but moping about things that do not benefit is not what a believer in the Most High should be dwelling on. We all know these things, yet, since we are human (the spirit is willing, yet the flesh is weak) we need reminders of how little we are in the vastness of our Creator. As I held my Grandma's hand while she lay in her hospital bed and prior, this all came to me. She spent a total of four days hospitalized, a pacemaker was put in to help her heart keep a steady beat; she didn't even hesitate to come by for a family dinner party that weekend! How amazing! How wonderful is our Father who has lavished His love over us and calls us His children! Thank you Grandma, for being a wonderful example in my life. You are an amazing, loving, caring lady and I love you so very, very much.
