Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God.”
Sometimes, as much as you might see something approaching, it’s hard to accept that it’s actually happening when it finally arrives. Life is busy, things are happening and time moves fast. Truly absorbing a situation requires being still long enough to piece together the reason and really acknowledge the big picture. That’s not always easy and this is one of those cases.
Though my grandmother’s health has been declining over the years and has gotten worse lately, it’s difficult to imagine my world without her, even as I’m sitting bedside with her, coming to terms with the fact that it will soon be time to say our final goodbyes. This woman has taught me so much about life, love, family, hard work, dedication, humor, manners and proper grammar. She is a true Southern belle who taught English and Math, raised three boys with my granddaddy and managed to be one of the first women to graduate from FSU Law at the age of 42, all with never-failing class, style and faith. She is and will always be one of my biggest inspirations.
Take a moment to be still long enough to love those around you, let people know how much they mean to you and thank the good Lord for the beautiful life he’s given us.
