Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

A quick trip

Well my husband and I are headed to Hastings Nebraska for a few days to say good bye to his dear Grandpa. We just learned yesterday that Cancer has invaded his body and he has a tumor on his vertebrae that has paralyzed his ability to swallow. He is 85 and desires no form of treatment so we know that he body cannot live without food for very long. He has had a great life and will be with his dear wife who went home to be with Jesus in June. They will once be together again. He knows about Levi and was very excited that God blessed us with a son. We will be taking Levi with us so Grandpa can see him and we can say goodbye. Pray for the other children as they will be staying home with my parents. Also pray for my husbands mom she will no longer have any parents living once Grandpa passes.

I am so sorry to hear of the family's loss, but I thank God that Grandpa will be with Grandma (and Jesus). I pray you three will have a safe trip.

I was so saddened to read this post, yet it was tender and beautiful to read of his desire to refuse treatment and his anticipation of being reunited with his dear wife. Praying for all, Susan.

I am so glad that Grandpa is able to see his grandson. I am also glad that you are close enough to see him. Family is really important and we have to leave a legacy for our families to come. God bless and I am glad that Jesus is with you.

I am so sorry to hear this. It's always hard to lose somebody you love, even when it's expected. Praise God your grandpa will get to see that handsome little man of yours. I'm sure he will be bragging to the Saints when he gets to Heaven.

We have prayed and will continue to do so.

Love you!
