Grandma's early years (2)

Sunday, June 19, 2011
Had a busy wonderful day today.  Went to church this morning to give my heavenly Father Praise and Glory for loving me and blessing me with a wonderful family.
Went to the Sheehan's memorial at the Nelson Community Building.  We saw many people to talk with that we haven't seen for awhile.  There were a lot of people who came to pay tribute for Ray Sheehan's life.
Tim and Kathy invited us over for a cookout later this afternoon.  We enjoyed visiting with Them, Tori and Tim's parents, Jack and Louise.  The food was delicious and we all were treated like honorees.  I know Grandpa and Grandpa Grubbs felt very special.  Thank you Tim and Kathy.
We came home and Grandpa received phone calls from John and Steve which made Grandpa's day complete.  I know he felt very loved.
I guess my next recognition of Jesus came when I lived with my Mom and Dad in Warrensville Hts., Ohio.  I can remember sitting on the living room floor and the sun shinning in the front window.  I had heard of Jesus, I knew he loved me because I was taught the song:
Jesus loved me this I know,
for the Bible tells me so,
Little ones to him belong,
they are weak but He is strong,
Yes! Jesus loves me,
Yes! Jesus loves me,
Yes! Jesus loves me,
The Bible tells me so.
I wanted to go to church but my parents never went so therefore I didn't go.   My neighbor girl friend invited me to a Sunday school class which I loved.  What do I remember?  Don't laugh, but it's the smell of the bible.  I loved the sound and feel of the turning pages of the bible.  I think I only went one time with her but I always had the desire to attend church.  I lived with my parents in this house till I finished 4th grade.  Mom and Dad got a divorce and I will continue with this story tomorrow.
Love, grandma


  1. Grandma, do you enjoy reading? I was wondering if it was a 'book' thing about the Bible. I always loved how soft and delicate Bible pages are :)
    I pray you and everyone are well in your family today :)

  2. I use to feel guilty reading because as I was growing up we had to work and reading was a sign of laziness. Now I enjoy reading and love my bible.
