2017's Word of the Year

2017 word of the year- Enjoy- I will strive to relax and enjoy life more in 2017. My goal is not to get stressed about little details but to enjoy the things that God has given me, big and small.

Bittersweet Day

This morning I got the call I had been expecting for weeks. My grandmother passed away. I am grieving because I am going to miss her, but I am rejoicing for her because she has been released from this world with all of it's pain and sorrow.

Lovely in Lavender

After I got the call this morning a poem sprung to mind. It's written by John Gillespie Magee and is about flight, but if you just look at the first and last lines of this poem it is very fitting to what my grandmother experienced this morning.

"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,... 
put out my hand and touched the face of God."
