Today our family visited my mother-in-law for the first time in her new home in a memory-care assisted-living facility in Kansas near the family of one of her sons.
Seeing Grandma allowed us to witness for ourselves God's special care of this widow. Her blue eyes revealed so much. They reassured us that the Lord has her in the palm of His hand. She has been through so much since mid-January--the sudden death of her sister which necessitated her leaving her home of 33 years. But we saw this afternoon that as she has been leaning on God from day-to-day, He has been with her, just as He promised. The strength she is radiating tells the story of God drawing her to His heart, giving her peace as she walks through grief and change.
