The Pink One


This little ornament on my tree is from my grandparents house. My grandparents were the neatest, most beautiful people you could have ever known. My grandma was the things collector. She would collect little tiny things from her adventures. Everywhere my grandma went was an adventure. She had a joy and love for the world and knew how to see the wonder in all of life. She would collect little rocks from all our trips, many from the bottom of rivers while she snorkeled around. I picked this little ornament up while we were cleaning out their life from the south gate house. It reminds me of my grandma and her joy, love, & grace she had for each of us as we were all her precious collectibles of life. My grandparents showed me God’s character here on this earth and I think of them when I read Psalm 103:8-10 “The Lord is merciful & gracious, slow to anger & abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep His anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.” This encourages me to keep on growing and striving to one day be a woman of grace & peace, knowing that it can be achieved as I have seen it done in them. I miss them both deeply every day but I know I will see them again one day.
