farewell

Wednesday afternoon, Dixiana Hanks {grandmother to beks} went home.
"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." {rev.21.}
I wish I had words so I could honor her for a life well lived to the glory of God. I had the honour of spending 2 weeks out of many childhood summers in her house with Beks, and I will never forget her kindness and generosity...but I don't have any words. It just doesn't seem real.
I am ever so thankful for the gospel. Because of the gospel I'm not sad for Grammie. I know she is resting in her Savior's loving hands; and that one day her family will see her again. I'm grateful her family has this hope...but it doesn't keep us from missing her.
Please keep the Schwab fam in your prayers, as well as "GP" (her husband) and Taunte Lisa (her daughter).
