--2 Corinthians 1:3-4(NLT)
In February 2016, we lost my precious grandmother. She was an extraordinary woman and a huge part our lives. Christmas dinners were always held at her home; a family tradition spanning over 50 years. Christmas without "Grandma Bay" is virtually unfathomable. Yet, the reality is, she will not be here. But we cherish her memory--all the fun times, the laughter, her compassion, her forthrightness. Treasures.
I'm not sure what the family gathering will be like this year without Grandma Bay, the matriarch of our family. But, I am most certain of this: God is our source and he promises to comfort the grieving, mourning heart.
