Prayer for Grandma Toodles
« on: November 02, 2009, 10:22:45 PM »
My grandma "Toodles" died yesterday morning at home with her family.  Please pray for her, and everyone that loved her.  She was 90 and left behind a legacy of much love.  We spent the day before she died singing hymns and reading from scripture with her, it was probably the most blessed thing I've ever been part of.

Her favorite bible verse was the second half of Psalm 30:5 "weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." 

After a fitful night, she died on a golden southern Mississippi Sunday morning.

May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Thank you.  But seriously, I've never had more faith than after watching her die.  It was the most mystical, love and graced filled experience I've ever had.  Her life planted deep roots, her death gave us a glimpse of what true love awaits.  I know that sounds melodramatic, but it was a stunning experience. I'm not the same person today as I was when I left to see her in Mississippi last Thursday. Praise God.

May Grandma Toodle's Memory be Eternal.

Lord, have mercy on and ease the grief of her loved ones.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
