My Grandma Read My Blog
Whenever I tell her that I and my sister are coming home, she will start counting days until the day we actually come back home. Thinking about my family all day is too sad, that's why I'm not doing that. I'll tell you later why I choose to stay in Texas and live here. It's not because I don't love my family or anything like that. Today I just want to write a short post on my grandma reading my blog post.
I told you before that my grandma knew Mrs. L. My grandma used to send Mrs. L organic bird's nest for health purposes. My grandma doesn't really speak English but she took some English classes before (in her sixties). So I showed her my blog post about my conversation with Mrs. L, the post entitled Ovecoming Confusion in the Church Life.
It was so awesome! My grandma read it. Although she didn't understand every single word on that post, she was able to enjoy the gist of the post. It was such an encouragement to me that my grandma enjoyed reading my blog.
My grandma is fully in the church life. She's seventy five but she loves Christ and the church. It's her joy to invite the young ones into her home and she would cook a lot for them. She would also care for the older ones. She would visit and bring them food.
My grandma loves the young people and she treasures the older ones. She used to be a strong person but as time passes, the Lord has walked with her through many hardships.
My grandma is not a perfect person, but her years with the Lord is her real glitter. I'm very grateful that I have inherited such a good deposit from my grandma, and also from my mom. Well, from my grandma's mom too actually. She was also a faithful, mature believer in Christ.
My grandma has been investing the real treasure in the heavenly account by giving and giving. Now even I get to enjoy some of the dividend from her account. God's blessings are passed unto thousand generations.
I always remember my grandma's prayer -
"Lord, I pray that all my children and all my grandchildren would serve You and Your church."
Now, I can tell you this exact prayer is the reason why I'm living far away from home.
