What Matters

I know ya'll are waiting to hear about our trip and see pictures of the all-important First Day of School. That's coming, but tonight I have something else to share. It's simple, but much more important.
Today would have been my Grandad's 82nd birthday. Thinking that today would have been difficult for my grandmother, I made a point to call her. We chatted a while about this and that, and I just told her I had been thinking of her today more than usual. Gran acknowleged the significant date and told me that she had gone to the cemetery this morning. Know what else she said? "God's grace is sufficient to give us what we need. We just have to remember to ask for it. Tomorrow will be a better day."
Simple faith is great faith.
Happy Birthday, Grandad. I miss you.
