Grandma Seewer lived with us occasionally. I have only good memories about her and some that have stood out in my mind over the years. One special memory is seeing her kneel beside her bed at night and silently say her prayers. If she knew I was awake and watching her, she never let on.
After she passed, the family found a letter she wrote to her children and grandchildren included with her will. My mother saved the letter and my grandmother’s faith in Christ shines through.
Here is a portion of what she wrote:
If it were not for my belief in God I don’t think I could have carried on after Our Heavenly Father called your Father home.
Jesus said, “Come unto me all ye who are weary and heavy laden and I will give your rest.”
“And for all who ask it shall be freely given, He who knocks at the heavenly door, they shall be opened unto them.”
Also, remember John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
and “The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1
I am praying that I can so live that someday I can meet your father in heaven. Also, I am praying that the circle will not be broken up there.
God, through Christ Jesus, has give us so many good lessons if we only read our bibles and believe.”
Good bye now. May God bless you all – Love – Mother.
