Message from Granny.
There is a lot of sorting and packing going on at my house right now because we are preparing for a big move to Maryland. I have gotten a great new job and we were so lucky to lease the house to a great family that's moving in the day after we move out. Everything has fallen right into place, in spite of me. So tonight I was going through stuff in the garage and looked over at my grandmother's little nightstand that came home with us after her death. I brought it home and stuck it in my garage and have left it alone since. Tonight I decided to look inside. I found all sorts of little treasures of hers, but one thing in particular brought tears to my eyes...lots of them. In a little notebook that I had given her years earlier, she had written on the very back page, "You better take time out to study your Bible [out] of your busy day of work & thank God." I clipped the little note out and promptly put it in a frame. I think it will go on my new desk at my new job in my new life that I've been given, that I am, by the way, very thankful for.
