There are a couple things I am so very grateful to my Nana and Papa for:
1. Their example of true love- They were married almost 63 years when Papa passed away.
2. Their example of Godly living- They both trusted God so much and were so in tune to Him and His will.
3. Their example of service- Nana and Papa were constantly giving to others whether it was love, time, money, etc.
This week I have been reading the book of James.
James 1:22 "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says."
Nana and Papa lived this verse out daily. I pray that I can be better out not just reading the Bible, but really applying it to my life.
James 2:8 "If you really keep the royal law found in scripture, 'Love your neighbor as yourself,' you are doing right."
I think Nana and Papa represent this verse well. They constantly loved on others and put them above themselves. This is another thing I want to work on. I pray that I can begin to really love others as myself and serve others.
Happy Birthday Papa! I love and miss you very much!
