Wednesday Ramblings

Papa, we miss you already.  Today we will say goodbye to your earthly body but we will be comforted that you are rejoicing in the eternal promises of God.

When Paul and I go fishing this summer we will do so with you in our hearts.  Fishing, lakes, vegetable gardens, the smell of a tobacco pipe, a wood burning stove, and strong coffee will always remind me of you.  You are in my heart forever.

    Such sweet photos of you and your grandfather, Cassie. It is funny how the smallest, most subtle details of life remind of the ones we love. I think God intends for it to be this way to remind us that these people never leave us and are with us in everything we do. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

    • Cassie replied: — June 28th, 2012 @ 9:36 am

    Cassie,
    I did not know your father, but today I’m celebrating his life. And, rejoicing in the fact that he’s now dancing with the Lord. :) I’m also praying for comfort for you and the rest of your family during this time. God is so much bigger than anythign we can imagine during times like these and it’s HIM that gets us thru it. Lean on Him and I’ll be praying. So glad we “met”. :) lots of love and prayers, cat

    So sorry for your loss. Your family is my prayers. I think of my grandfather almost every day. He passed 5 yrs ago, even though we knew it was coming it didn’t make it any easier.

    • Cassie replied: — July 2nd, 2012 @ 11:11 am

      It’s definitely never easy, thanks Carrie!

    Erin @ Texanerin Baking — June 30, 2012 @ 11:51 am

    What an adorable man he was. So so sweet looking. It looks and sounds like you have some nice memories of him that you can cherish forever. Not that it makes it any better.

    My last grandparent died right before Christmas and it’s really so strange. I keep thinking, “Really? He’s gone? But it’s so weird.” And it is. It just feels very strange. I’m a bit slow with my comment, but I’ve been thinking of you and your family since I saw your post on Instagram and I’m sending another hug your way.

    • Cassie replied: — July 2nd, 2012 @ 11:12 am

      It does feel very strange, you are right. It’s a new kind of “normal”. Thanks so much for your thoughts Erin!

    Jennifer Eloff — July 1, 2012 @ 6:54 am
