And Grace will Lead us Home...

My grandfather passed away early this morning.

He struggled with Alzheimer's for years, and now he is at peace.

I told him before he passed away that there would be a Buick Century waiting for him. It would be fully loaded, with leather seating and climate control. There would be a hockey stick waiting for him as well.

And now I think, maybe I should have said Cadillac? Maybe he would have preferred, in his last hours, to picture a Cadillac waiting for him rather than a Buick.

And I woke up this morning and heard the news that he had passed on. And I realized that what I said didn't matter any more. Because maybe there are no fancy cars in heaven, because everything is perfect once you get there. And maybe you don't need a car because you have everything you ever wanted simply because of the perfection that heaven is.

And thus the suffering is over. Sometimes these things are blessing in disguise. But I am sorry to hear of your loss.
