A Personal Note

My grandmother's health is deteriorating. He pain is constant. She weighs less than 100 pounds. Her esophagus is shutting down. I could elaborate but the point is she's dying. Of course we don't know how long she has but for now she is in misery. We are heading to Indy to be with family. My grief is big right now. I'm at a loss for words. I can't help but think of my kids and how they will handle this loss. They loves their GG very much. They knows she is very sick and will be with Jesus soon, but still the idea of having to walk them through their grief breaks my heart - it's a reality of life I want to protect them from. And my mom - she isn't a believer and has no hope without Christ. This is perhaps the most painful element. Everyone else in our family has placed their faith in Christ except for my mom, and this is her mother that is dying.

I would appreciate any prayers.

I will update you as I can.

Much love in Christ,
Stacy

Stacy, I will definitely remember you and your family as I pray today. I know this is difficult, and there are no words to make it easier. I will also pray your mother will see the hope you have as a believer and desire it for herself. Blessings and hugs.

Oh Stacy, I'm so sorry for the pain that your grandma is going through right now! Also for the loss that you know is coming. It really isn't easy to go through grief with our kids. I'll be praying for you guys and praying that your mom will come to know Christ through all of this.

Sorry to hear. I'll be praying that God would have mercy on your grandmother and not let her suffer. Also praying for your mother's salvation, and for peace and comfort over you and your children during this sad time.

You said such wise words to your son. I wish I had said some of those same things to my kids when their grandmommy and great granny died two years ago. I understand your grief. Remember, Jesus will be your portion - He's just enough for the moment, so lean on Him (I know you will).
