It’s moving day, It’s moving day! I don’t expect I will be able to get on the computer much this week as we close down one house and get settled in the new. I am filling the next few days with some favorite music and pictures. I hope you enjoy!
I just recently looked this song up because I had been thinking of my paternal grandma, Lawanda. This woman was strength personified. She kept her large family together and fought cancer for twenty years, all while maintaining a truly cheerful disposition and giving glory to the Lord. I don’t think about her as often, and have fewer memories of her than I do of my maternal grandma. My parent moved to Korea when I was six and then divorced, so I didn’t spend as much time with her. I have a lot of cousins who did get to spend more time with her. She was always, always nice to me, but I often felt like I was near the back of the line for her attentions.
The summer before we moved from the town she lived, she had a weekly sing-along with the cousins. Weekly visits with Grandma were totally unfamiliar to me, so this was a very special time where I got to spend more time with this remarkable woman. She would play the piano and we would all sing with her. We mostly sang hymns, but this song was one I really loved and I requested often. She obliged.
