Multitudes on Monday

Thank you all for praying for me and my family. I did make it to see my grandmother and just in time. I got to her at 10:30 PM Friday night and she passed away at 12:15 AM. I am so glad I went, it was worth the travel even if it was for such a short time. 

I appreciate you all so much, you bless me!

Continuing on with Multitudes on Mondays...

11. twenty-five minutes at the DMV :)
12. husband coming home early
13. lovely farmland stretched out for miles and miles of drive

14. brokenness along the way

15. one hour and forty-five minutes with her...

16. reminding her of her place in eternity
17. holding her hand and stroking her hair as she breathes life's last breath
18. hidden pictures in my suitcase

19. compassionate darling daughter who cries for my loss
20. sister's love
21. Kelli... for her faithful friendship and encouraging words 
22. photo memories (can you guess which one is me?)

23. pretty things that die and actually do come back ( my picture doesn't do it justice!)
24. understanding your Sovereignty because it does away with my bitterness and discontentment



  1. Heidi I am so sorry to hear about your lost, she is in a much better place as you and I know. I will continue to pray that God gives you and your family the strength to carry on and to keep your spirits lifted. And all those fond memories you have will never be lost for they are in your heart and the families heart. God be with you all and God bless

  2. Heidi, your post made me cry. Those last few minutes with a loved one are SO precious. So thankful you were able to be there with your Grandma and love on her!

  3. I will stop over to your Facebook and check on you from time to time okay

  4. Love your list, Heidi, and glad to hear that you were able to be with your grandma. I especially like #24. We don't understand why things happen the way they do, but we KNOW that God is Sovereign. We can trust Him.

  5. So glad you were able to spend a few moments with your grandmother. Great list.

  6. Sorry to hear of your loss. #15 - 17 are precious moments.

  7. Oh Heidi, you brought me to tears! What a blessing that you were able to accomplish what you set out to; to see her one last time. And your message here, so eloquently stated and poured out from a beautiful heart. God Bless you in this time of remembering and letting go.

  8. Sorry to hear of your loss...I too am dealing with a sick Grandmother and it is so hard to see the ones who cared for us need our help now. I put my list over on Moment with God so won't repeat it here...but I have so much to be thankful for!

  9. Awe. Love it! You made me tear up!

    Love ya!

  10. While I grieve for your loss Heidi, I'm very glad to hear that you made it in time to spend those final moments with her. I have no doubt that your words of comfort and love guided her to God's Kingdom with a smile on her face.

    I pray that the Lord's comfort is felt by you and your family during this difficult time.

    Have a Blessed Day Dear Lady!

  11. I really enjoyed reading the posts on your blog. I would like to invite you to come on over to my blog and check it out. God bless, Lloyd

  12. Oh, Heidi, I'm so glad you got to see your grandma and be with her. My Mom, 83, is with us to see her first great grandbaby born in the next few days. When these women go, WE will be the women of faith that others look to. Lord, help us do this labor of love!

  13. Ohhh! I'm really sorry for the loss of your precious grandma, but so so happy that you were able to hug her one more time and see her before she went.

  14. So sorry for your loss...I know from experience that those final moments will be a memory you will treasure forever....
