This weekend we gathered with family and friends and said goodbye to a wonderful man. Jason's grandfather went to be with the Lord Friday November 23. I had the privilege of knowing Harold for sixteen years. He was a great man. He had such a sweet bond with my kids and they loved there "Grandpa Great". Noah first started calling him that when he learned how to talk and it just kind of stuck with all the grandkids.
When you go to funerals it really makes you assess your life. You wonder what kinds of things people will say about you, you wonder how many more funerals you will attend until Jesus comes or calls you home, and you wonder how the person you are grieving is enjoying being in the arms of there savior(if they are saved of coarse) It causes you to pray for those in the room that aren't believers and for the rest of the people in your life that need the Lord. Funerals are opportunities to celebrate if you know the person is with Jesus after all that is our main goal to be with Jesus for eternity. We grieve the loss for ourselves but celebrate the victory for our loved one.
