July 17, 2012

Pop-pop passed on early this morning. He has gone on to his Heavenly Father, where he was ready to be. And I am reminded of the prayer he prayed everyday before his meal, “Forgive us of our shortcomings, feed us with the Bread of Life, and in death, save us.” Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

    My prayers are with you. I lost a grandfather earlier this summer. What do people do without the hope of life with Jesus?
