it's not good-bye, but til we meet again....

tomorrow thefab4m's will make the journey to not say, "good-bye" to my grandfather, but to say, "til we meet again."  for some of you, that may sound corny, silly, hokey, or just plain weird.  for our family, it is not.  we know that we will see pops again and that he will be more perfect than we could ever imagine...especially regarding his health...and this is why... excerpt from post last week to see full post click here

I am overwhelmed by the grace and the mercy that God has for us.  We don't deserve it, but yet freely He gives it.  I think that just as the new season of autumn brings new colors on the leaves, a cooler temperature in the air, and transforms our landscapes into something different, God is doing that with me too.  Transforming me to be more like Him so that when people see me, they see a reflection of Him. He is also requiring me to wait on His perfect timing....these are all processes that i am admittedly not very good at, but through God's grace, love, and mercy I will continue to run the race in which He intended for me.

and we, with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 
2 Corinthians 3:18
