Last night, my Grandma's best friend, Jim, died. . .
He is THE longest person in the United States of America to live with an artifical lung (17 years).
At the age of 76, he is one of the "coolest" Christian older people i know.
Jim, was like a grandpa to me (basically was). I love and will miss him very much.
But, I rejoice to know that he is no longer suffering here on earth.
Here is a little bit of a note that he wrote me before i went to montreal this year.
"I am so proud fo you and your tudes about your silly act disease and your trips. Such an inspiration for me and others. Praying your trip will be a great experience for you and all who go. And especially for those in Montreal. Keep on keeping on. Luv you, Jim"
(silly act....instead of "celiac"...gotta love it :)
"This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held. " (Natalie Grant)
somtimes, it's hard to "go on" after something like this. hard to keep running.
whew- what a relief it is that God never changes, even though things change here on earth. God never does.
gotta keep running....."i've got a kingdom to gain"
