my grandma is away. Paradise

Funny, as I penned the words paradise that’s exactly how I pictured my grandma all those years playing in Florida and at her pool in Whitehall or condominium ..great how you tie memories together, the sketch wild , heavily imprinted. Monday morning around dawn Leola “Lee” Mae passed from this earth to paradise..Robin was in her midst but can not recall the moment she left this earth –grandma’s breathing steady not rushed or gasping..I believed and prayed over my grandma that she would have PEACE..thank You God, she did pass “In Peace”..the morning of her death I quickly had to force myself to “pick myself up” and get ready for my waitress job, Psalm26 lept off the Word. “Vindicate ME, O Lord, for I have [expectantly] trusted in,leaned on, and relied on the Lord without wavering and I shall not slide. Examine ME, O Lord, and prove me; test my heart and my mind. For Your loving-kindness is before my eyes, I have walked in Your truth [faithfully]. I do not sit with false persons,nor fellowship with pretenders. I hate the company of evildoers and will not sit with the wicked. I will wash my hand in innocence, and go about Your altar, O Lord. That I may make the voice of thanksgiving heard and may tell of all Your wondrous works. Lord, I love the habitation of Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells. Gather me not with sinners and sweep me not away [with them], nor my life with bloodthirsty men,In whose hands is wickedness, and their right hands are full of bribes. But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; redeem me and be merciful and gracious to me. My foot stand on an even place; in the congregations will I bless the Lord.”

Sunday I had to work, all my family left for Adrian to say goodbye to GiGi.- I recorded a song that later heard my mom put the phone up to grandma’s ear. You Are My Hiding Place was the hymn..Heidi Leigh that is always what I will be..her Heidi Leigh, Leola grandma loved me fiercely. Thank you grandma for loving me that much, the day of Hannah & I car accident after we ‘came to’ I phoned GiGi in her hospital room, I had to make sure she knew I loved her..grandma said ,” I have done something very bad, I am ready to go..I am ready to go..” We said good-bye . many “i love you’s..

foot will not slip”..

finally, deep breaths.

Hannah and I found ourselves in the middle of a traumatic car collision accident a few days ago, Saturday.November 14.11:30am. Intersection of Wealthy & GrandvilleSt. Downtown. On our way to Saturday ballet class- turning left”..days earlier prior to our crash I was reading..”He will not allow your foot to slip. i cant and will not fear. no nothing do I fear, and i do not fear for my children.What happened, happened. I have grown much this week, and PRAISE GOD ALL GLORY TO YOU GOD. “With long life will I SATISFY YOU AND SHOW YOU MY SALVATION. Our foot did not slip from the Almighty God hand. Ever Praising Ever Exalting to whom the praise we sing from the depths of our fragile heart. YOU ARE THE STRENGTH OF OUR LIFE and we rest.

Psalm 46.

GOD is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation ], a very present and well-proved HELP IN trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas, Though it’s waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at it’s swelling and tumult. *Selah*There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning]. The nations raged , the kingdoms tottered and were moved; HE uttered His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our Fortress and High Tower). *Selah* Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has wrought desolations and wonders in the earth. He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow into pieces and snaps the spear in two; He burns the chariots in the fire. Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God.I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth ! The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). *Selah*.” Amen.
