  1. What a wonderful tribute to your grandmother! Beautiful reminder to us all, too- the quiet daily living it out near Jesus is the lasting legacy….Thank you for a thoughtful post!

  2. Charissa, this was such a blessing to read. Your grandma’s godly example is such a treasure. Thank you for sharing about her. I am challenged & encouraged by just reading about her! I will look forward to meeting her in heaven one day 🙂 God bless you.

  3. What a true legacy. A blessing beyond her life continues. Thank you for sharing her wisdom with others.

  4. Beina Grammy to 3 little boys. This keeps me wanting to press on so that they too-along with thier parents will remember me living a life with Jesus and having fun with them and their Gramps
    What a WONDERFUL WOMAN you were blessed to have as a granmother

  5. Beautiful. This story is especially touching for me as I just got back from visiting my 93-year-old grandfather who has an equally strong faith and taught me much about Jesus. May we always honor and remember elders of the faith, and may our generation produce equally as devoted Christ followers, so that one day our children and grandchildren will be able to say the same things about us.

  6. Yes this is so true…most of our truly sacrificial loving of other people stays “hidden”. Love this post…thanks Charissa!

  7. Charissa, Your words had me reeled in, longing for this life too. Thank you for writing them down for us to be inspired by!
