My grandmother, Maw Maw or GiGi-once she became a great-grandmother, passed away this past Sunday. She had not been doing great health-wise for awhile, so it was a blessing she is no longer suffering. She is with Jesus and a bunch of loved ones in heaven right now! I did a post on Gigi's 87 birthday here, and I am so thankful for all of the wonderful memories I had with her. One of my cousins said it best when they said, she loved you for exactly who you are, she never judged you, only guided you in the right direction by her faith, love, and example.  I also just finished reading Heaven is For Real, and in it the little boy Colton goes to heaven for a few minutes (due to some medical circumstances) and experiences Jesus. His parents know this because later when he is well, he shares different tidbits about heaven that they know they never taught him. One of my favorite parts is that he was obsessed with finding a picture that really looked like Jesus. This is the one that one day after years of looking, he said, "That's it! That is Jesus." So I am celebrating that GiGi is with him right now.





and I am so glad she got to meet Lane before she left.

Sweet post Rayne! The funeral was such a testimony of her life on earth. Praising with you that she is with Jesus now and forever. I heard that Heaven is for REAL is a great book. I need to read it
