My Lola

We are now waiting for my final paperwork this time before I can legally leave and enter the USA, and we are planning already for me to go home once I got that. It's been my heart's desire to go to my paternal clan and visit with them since we seldom see each other. But just this morning I was told that my Lola, my paternal grandmother, passed away today. I was torn between sadness and joy for her. So sad that we lost her and since we are still on the flesh, can't help but cry, but also glad that she finally rested from such what might have been a very gloomy last years of her life. She had a stroke, and half her body was paralyzed from a heart attack due to fear when someone opened her door one evening, and it was so hard for her to talk, and for us to understand what she was saying. It has been so hard for us all, and I know it was much harder for her. God take care of her soul.

The graveyard does not respect ages of people and we don't know when is our time, only God can tell. It has always been in my "life list", since we can not avoid it, to have these songs sung on my day: My Redeemer Lives (Vineyard), Just a Closer Walk With Thee.

My Redeemer Lives
(John Willison)

For I know my redeemer lives
And in the end He will stand on the earth
For I know my redeemer lives
And in the end He will reign on the earth

Though my flesh it be destroyed
Yet with my eyes I will see God

For I know that my redeemer lives
And I will stand with Him on that day

Oh my heart it yearns within me
For the day when Jesus returns
Oh my heart it yearns within me
For the day when Jesus shall reign

Though my flesh it be destroyed
Yet with my eyes I will see God

For I know that my redeemer lives
And I will stand with Him on that day

Though this flesh it be destroyed, yet with our eyes we will see the One who formed us from dust, and we will live with him, forever.
