It has been a long day…..a long, hard day. While I was in church this morning, the Good Shepherd took his beloved son to heaven this morning after giving him 99 1/2 years of life. I was so proud of Elizabeth who was the first one reached and she comforted her grandma and stayed with her. I was proud of Andres who had to finish out the closing music at church before joining the family and kept running errands to provide whatever was needed. Both pastors who visited mentioned portions of the 23rd Psalm. Dear friends brought words of comfort and food. It was a hard day but a very good day………through the tears and pain of being separated from a loved one, is the joy and celebration that comes from grandpa reaching the goal…..arriving at the heavenly mansion, being in the presence of God and being reunited with loved ones who have gone on before him, especially his beloved Gregorita, my grandmother.
