For those of you who might be unaware, Brittany's maternal grandmother, Mrs. Patty McDonald, passed away a few weeks ago. She was a great lady, a strong Christian, and fervent lover of both God and her fellow men (and women). Grandma Mac will be missed by her many friends, family members, and especially by those to whom she tirelessly ministered.
With that in mind, several of last week's Green Book readings seemed especially apropos as we grieved the loss (and celebrated the life of) Grandma Mac:
"And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the LORD as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the LORD, the Spirit." -2 Corinthians 3:18
"I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" -John 11:25-26
Listen, I will tell you a mystery! We will not all die, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed." -1 Corinthians 15:51-52
