It is amazing to me how when I mention rainbows,
I start seeing them all the time!
On the drive down to my Grandad's funeral, I saw 3 rainbows. A reminder of God's promise.
The funeral went very well. The Lord was in it all the way. The service bought the gospel message and the time with family was healing. I was given a peace that I didn't have before the funeral. Closure is always hard, but I am on my way to the mending. Saying goodbye to my grandad's house is also hard because it holds so many memories. I'm not very good with change, but with the Lord's help I will be ok.
Today, is a sunny day. A day for new beginnings. A day for new growth. Harrison and I have been doing a lot of planting as of late. With a house comes gardening and we are enjoying it together.

2010 is here and it is already bringing happiness and sorrow. This past month has been filled with celebration of marriage and sorrow of death.
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
The stormy weather outside my window very clearly explains my current emotional state.... Sadness.
Over the weekend my Grandad past away from cancer. Right now, he is with my Grandma and his parents in Heaven with no sorrow or pain and in this I rejoice.
Even though I know he is in a better place, my human selfishness cant help but seep through. So many chapters in my life ending right now. Its hard not to be sad. I just need to keep remembering my last visit, My Last Goodbye...
...and remember Stormy Weather always ends with a Rainbow.
