Sweet Life with Jesus

Today is the one year anniversary of the death of my Grandma Ruth. I had forgotten that this morning until I was potting some plants. Just so happens I was potting some ivies that had come from the plant I got from her house. I made a plant for each of my adult sisters. Really just hoping that one of us can keep the plant alive. I was told it was my Great Grandmothers plant. Anywho, while I was potting them it reminded me of what a sweet life with Christ she is living now. No struggles, no fears, no loneliness, no more potting plants! I am so thankful that Christ offers me His peace while here on Earth too. All I have to do is to stay connected to him and follow. It was just a good reminder of what a faithful life looks like at the end. Praise Jesus for giving me that example and gift of remembering! Psalm 1:1-3 "Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted b y streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers."
