Today, we held a memorial service for my cousin at the cemetery. It was a glorious day.
He died several years ago, but there were problems getting his ashes. His mother died giving birth to him, and now he's with her.
This is such a beautiful place. My grandparents are buried here, along with my great-grandparents.
I had not been back here since my grandmother died in 1986. That was the hardest and darkest day of my life. But today, I felt only peace in this beautiful place.
I know she's not there. She's with her beloved Jesus, and someday I'll see her again, and be able to worship Him with her.
Afterward, we went to dinner at the Green Lantern [worth an out of state road trip], then onto my cousin's home. He's big into salt water fish tanks....he has several.
They even grow their own coral. This is the fish tank he's getting set up in the living room, John is standing next to it to give you some idea of the size.
Isn't that just dedication? The pics come out kind of blue, they have led lights or something in the tanks. But gosh are they stunning in person.
I hope you had a good day too. I have to go stitch a quilt label....see you soon!
