2 Corinthians 5:6-8
The Living Bible
I am happy to be a Christian. I am happy to have a savior that gave the ultimate sacrifice for my sins. I believe in heaven and hell, and I pray every night that I will go to heaven so I can see all of those who are not here anymore.
Having said that, I'm not always comforted by the last statement. Sometimes I would just rather have that person here. Maybe I'm selfish. I don't know. Today marks the 3 year anniversary of my Grandma's passing (one of the reasons this month blows). The bible verse above was on the page where her bookmark was in her bible. So I guess I can take a little comfort in knowing she was ready.
That doesn't change the fact that I couldn't call her when Quinton proposed to me, I will never have a picture of the two of us together on my wedding day, and she will not get to hold my babies. I do still love when people introduce me as "Marilyn Hanson's granddaughter". I personally think it is the greatest compliment anyone can give me.
