On January 7th my grandma Lois Scott passed away. Thankfully we had the opportunity to go back to Michigan this past week for the services to celebrate her beautiful life. She truly lived every day for the Lord and her final deep burning passion was to know that her family and friends, people she loved dearly, had accepted God as their Lord and Savior. We know when she passed she was met by the words “well done, good and faithful servant.”
God is so gracious. My grandma was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor in early December while we were still in Grand Rapids. We were able to go directly to the hospital and spend the afternoon with her only a day after she was diagnosed. We had an entire week left in Michigan before coming to Arizona which gave us precious time with her. My grandma prayed for me my whole life, that I would have a relationship with God. She never ceased as a woman of prayer. She has left an incredible legacy for our family.
After Micah and I got married she liked to remind me that ALL of her friends had great grandchildren and she didn’t have ANY. We were overjoyed with the arrival of Porter in 2013, but he was born in Uganda so family didn’t get to meet him until we returned. This past June upon arriving to the US, we brought Porter to the cottage at Big Star Lake where grandma finally met her first great grandchild. The moment was so sweet, locked in my memory forever. Fast forward to December in the hospital, I asked grandma to pray over Porter knowing the warrior that she is. Porter sat on her lap and she prayed over him and his life, one of the most beautiful pictures.
I am unbelievably grateful for the time in December with my grandma. To share Porter with her. And to say “see you in heaven.”
