My Elderly Cousin

The first thing that I heard on our phone this morning was that "Granny was gone." Granny was the oldest living relative that I had. She was my 88 year old cousin.

My Elderly Cousin

Having lived in this life for over eighty years now, I have come to realize that life is short and time is fleeting. I have heard many things and have been involved with a lot of people in my life. Like all people, I have done some bad things, good things, charitable things, and I have been preaching, pastoring and witnessing for the last 55 years. No, I have not reached perfection as the world counts perfection but I will always be as the LORD will have me to be.
I have lost family members and friends as they passed from this life to their destiny, wherever that may be. Only God knows. I pray that we will all meet in Heaven with our LORD for I believe that the majority, if not all, were Born again Christians, children of God.

Today I received news that my eldest Cousin who was 88 years of age just passed away. Yes that was sad news, but having been bed ridden with a stroke I like to think that she received sweet relief since she was a Confessed Christian and had served the LORD many years. I will not ever see her again in this life nor will I be able to attend her Going Home Service because of my infirmities. So a Card relaying my sympathy to her family members with flowers will be all that I can do. I pray that the Lord will comfort and keep them all until we meet again!
