In attending a relative’s funeral yesterday in my hometown church, I was reminded of so many things: friends of decades gone by; precious memories of Sunday family gatherings; the multitude of changes in life; God’s grace and help in grievous times.
While there we drove by where we grew up and then passed by our former grandparents’ homes. Having not visited there in a few years, all looked familiar yet quite different.
As my sister Elaine, due to her disability, could not travel back with us to our small town, I missed her presence. Life has changed in many ways for all of us. However in the midst of the changes, God is still present, and for Him I am thankful.
