He ran well

Last week we traveled to my Great Grandpa's  funeral. ):
Lots of tears, lots of sadness. I loved him so much. But he ran well.

My Great Grandpa took up golfing at 70 years young and got a hole-in-one at a fascinating age! My uncle talked about him at the funeral. He talked about, as he put it, "extraordinary" things. He also gave an Irish (My Mom's Dad was full-blooded Irish.) prayer. "God saw you getting tired, a cure was not to be....."

My Great Grandpa really was great. In fact, he was awesome! He still is. And, hey, I still got him in my heart. I can't see him, but I can remember him!

Jesus gives New Life

Please, pray for my Great Grandpa who is in the hospital. He is in I.C.U. for greater, more intense care. The Doctors think he has congestive heart failure.

Please, pray for him. He is my Mom's only Grandpa. He has outlived my Dad's Grandpas by twenty years.
I love him so much, and I don't want to lose him.
He is such a wonderful Great Grandpa and he is kind.
My little sister cried a lot this morning when my Dad told us. My Mom cried a lot yesterday, she told us, and I needed a lot of comforting as well from my Mom tonight.

I don't know what God has planned, and I am scared. This is very hard to deal with. We visited my Great Grandpa recently in the hospital when he was getting over the pneumonia and he had a bad cough.
Now, I don't know what to do. I've prayed, I've written in my journal to write out what I have thought, I've told my family members what I'm feeling. But I don't feel any better.

My big brother told me that things could end up good, but then they might not. My family is so wonderful and comforting. I need it now.

To God be the Glory.
