There are certain people that touch your life in such a way that you can’t help but continually think of them long after they’re gone. My grandpa was one of those people.
When he opted out of this world six years ago, it was one of the most difficult losses I’d experienced. And I’d experienced several prior. But he was just … special. I’ve posted about him almost every year as this day doesn’t go by (nor many others) without him heavily on my mind. So gruff. Yet so … amazing.
Just like with the photo for Paul a few weeks ago, I prayed all day that I would get a special reminder of Grandpa today. I thought, ‘well, he’s been gone for six years so maybe something about a six on the sixth.’ But then I thought how thought would seem devilish and he was only devilish for a short while. And I didn’t know him for that part.
But then? Tonight I was visiting with my besties over coffee and as soon as I started towards a seat, I saw it. And I smiled and shared why I wanted to take a photo of this customer’s laptop. She seemed to appreciate it.
I needed the reminder. Always need it. Thanks, Grandpa, for finding your way into my heart today.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world,[a] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
