MeMommie

Ecclesiastes 3 ~ A Time for Everything
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

I found out last night on the way home from work, that MeMommie had died. MeMommie is I guess you could say adopted grandma. She's my sisters grandma but I've thought of her as my grandma ever since I was little. Miss Phyllis Cook was possibly one of the sweetest ladies ever. Loved the Lord and loved just about everyone around her. My dad said she could be quite a fiery spirit and I don't doubt it. I'm going to miss her a lot but I know that she's with God and that gives me both peace and joy.

Revelation 21:3-5 (NIV)
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
