Joshua and his Great Gram
Memories, laughter, tears, red carnations, and oodles of love - the best way to describe my Gram's memorial service. Thank you for the way you splashed me with the comments on my last post, letting my Gram's life shine for Him as you read.
My apologies for not posting in a while, we're still twisting in the whirlwind of being back in the USA. Friends to visit, family to hug, grandparents desperate to spoil their grandkids, warm showers and bubble baths, I hope you understand.
But I had to share, just can't keep it inside, can you see this proud mommy smiling? My Joshua told me just last week "Mommy, I'm ready to be baptized." I talked with him, he shared his heart, he prayed with Daddy and yes, he's ready. More ready than most I suppose, but his excitement is contagious. Following in Jesus' footsteps, he did ask if there was any possibility of being baptized in the Jordan. Not this time my sweet, but our family rejoices they can celebrate with us.
A week after his great grandmother's memorial, Joshua will be baptized. Death and life intertwined in a family tapestry of grace and redemption. What a beautiful legacy, what a beautiful Lord.
