thanks for prayers...

As many of you are aware, my paternal grandmother died last week. I know there were prayer requests posted for my family and I thank each one who prayed.
As sad and grief stricken as I am, God has taught me much through this hurt. First and foremost, that HE IS IN CONTROL, even when I think He's not. Second, as a believer, I tend to try to witness to strangers because I'm not as concerned about how they will view me as I am people I know. God showed me that my family should know Him too. I mean, I try to show God to my family, but I don't talk about Him or His ways for fear of how they will treat me afterwards. There are some of my family members who have made fun of me or said things that are inappropriate just to get a reaction from me. God showed me that my family is important to Him and they need to be important enough to me for me to share Him with them.
I posted a picture of my grandma in my pics for people to see. I have part of her name, and always much of her love within me.
