On Saturday I will celebrate my 10,000th day, but today I celebrate a woman who lived her 35,475th day, and then passed into eternity.
This was Katherine Burton 2 Christmases ago, holding one of her favorite things…chocolate. I think she may have influenced my like for chocolate;)
She was my last, living grandparent at the age of 97 years old.
There are some people in my life that I could always count on to pray for me. Grandmom was probably the most consistent throughout my life. She knew Jesus. She loved Jesus. She prayed to Jesus. She told others about Jesus…What an example.
I’m glad that I got to see her at Christmas time to say, "Goodbye." She kept talking about "Glory"-
going there, longing to be there with Jesus (and every now and then she would look up at us and ask if were finally in Glory, together:). We got to pray with her as she just cried out to Jesus. She really wanted to see Him. Then she just started praying…for me! Grandmom was there in pain and she started to pray for me. Can I tell you the funny thing about it all though? She prayed for my future husband. 🙂 After many conversations with her about the topic, I think she may have thought about it more than I did.
She valued love and relationships, and right now-if it works this way-she’s with my grandpop, whom I never met, and whom she longed to be with once again. I loved her so much. She cared so deeply for me, and I will miss her. The best thing is that I will see her again someday:)
