Life and Death

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

To everything there is a season

A time for every purpose under heaven

A time to be born

And a time to die

My "little" brother, Ben, turned 16 years old today.

I remember the moment he was born. I was 11 at the time and present at his birth. I burst into tears when I first saw him. I didn't understand it at the time...but now I know that it was just seeing firsthand for the first time the miracle of life.

Happy Birthday little brother, I love you.

My grandmother, Beulah Margie Miller, passed away today.

I almost don't have any childhood memories without her in it. She was the best Grandmother any little girl could ask for. I burst into tears today when I heard the news. The miracle of death, while wrapped in sadness, is that we are promised, as Christian's, that "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." 2 Corin 5:8

You will be missed Grandmother, I love you.
