All the way my Savior leads me...

All the way my Savior leads me.... My grandma has been sick for many years with Alzheimer's and I have seen her condition worsen over these years. She has gone from a vibrant strong mom and grandmom to not being able to speak and weighing almost half her normal weight. She has a strong faith in Jesus and no disease can take that spiritual commitment away. She is safe in the arms of Jesus who has been with her through these years. One day when she is free from pain, sin, and sorrow my grandma will be more alive than she has ever been in the life. She will have more there, and will have her family to greet when we are freed of here.

All the way my Savior leads me...

My mom and her 2 sisters have gone from being her daughters to being her caretakers and doing all that entails. Making, many times, life and death decisions for their mama. From creating schedules so that she is watched over every minute to practically pulling their hair out over financial issues. I have watched them grow closer through trials and lean on each other through fire, which has been some of the proudest moments of my life.

All the way my Savior leads me...

Worship is a lifestyle. And I don't know if you know this but life can be hard and unfair. Sometimes when we are at our breaking point a deeper worship can occur. I have seen this worship through my grandma's children, grandchildren, and friends. It has become evident that grandma's days are nearing an end here and a song has been in my heart for a few days.

All the way my Savior leads me...

My Savior has led grandma all the way...these past years the Savior has used her own children to lead her to rise up after this life. What honor and love has been poured out from this family. What a privilege to be apart of this family that has worshiped Christ through loving grandma.

All the way my Savior leads me...

Where he leads is where we all need to be. Where he leads us is to a new dawn, a new day, and a perfect eternity. When this season is through we will always have the Savior.

I love you baby! This was so beautiful. It's been such an awesome thing to see your mom and aunts come together (along with other family members) and take care of your grandmother the way that they have. They have honored their mother and I know God will bless them richly for that!!! Looks like we've both been blessed with strong families who care for one another no matter the cost. It's a great example and if these are Grandma's final days on earth...she will leave behind an awesome legacy! I'm so blessed to be a part of this family!!!
