Grandpa Snucked Out

February 27, 2013

My cousin Ken fought a courageous 4-year battle with cancer. In his final days, his wife, three children, and several grandchildren were in and out of his room, spending time with him and sharing special goodbyes. When everyone was out of the room for a moment, he slipped into eternity. After the family realized that he was gone, one young granddaughter sweetly remarked, “Grandpa snucked out.” One moment the Lord was with Ken here on earth; the next moment Ken’s spirit was with the Lord in heaven.

Psalm 16 was a favorite psalm of Ken’s that he had requested to be read at his memorial service. He agreed with the psalmist David who said that there was no treasure more valuable than a personal relationship with God (vv.2,5). With the Lord as his refuge, David also knew that the grave does not rob believers of life. He said, “You will not leave my soul in Sheol [the grave]” (v.10). Neither Ken nor anyone else who knows Jesus as Savior will be abandoned in death.

Because of Jesus’ own death and resurrection, we too will rise one day (Acts 2:25-28; 1 Cor. 15:20-22). And we will find that “at [God’s] right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Ps. 16:11).

“In the Beloved” accepted am I,
Risen, ascended, and seated on high;
Saved from all sin through His infinite grace,
I am accorded in heaven a place.
—Civilla Martin. © Renewal 1958. Hope Publishing.
God is our treasure now, and being with Him in heaven will bring pleasures forever.

Read: Psalm 16

My heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope. —Psalm 16:9
Bible in a Year:
Numbers 17-19; Mark 6:30-56

You feel like you can't depend on anyone but yourself in this world. You feel quite alone sometimes.

You feel exhausted about your past and those you have loved. It's been a long, hard road.

You succeed by tapping into your reserves. You have an extraordinary amount of energy and endurance.

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!



Sgt. Harold Vormezeele, 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment (2REP), French Foreign Legion, KIA Mali, 19Feb2013



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)

Flowers of the Forest



Black Watch Piper

Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

You Are Together and Wise
You have a broad, mature outlook on life. You know that there are ups and downs, and you feel like you can weather them.

You feel a strong sense of community and like you truly belong. You trust other people and believe they are basically good.

You feel wistful about your past and those you have loved. Memories are bittersweet for you.

You succeed by counting on others for support. You could never do what you do without your friends and family.

You Are Thoughtful and Happy
You have an optimistic outlook. When troubles come your way, you try to see how you will grow and learn from them.

You feel like you can't depend on many people in this world. There are a few that you totally trust, however.

You succeed by pacing yourself. You realize that all that matters is the long run, and you aim to persevere.

Just as an afterthought, after yesterday, I'm totally tired of the desert!

Second day went well, thanks! I'm parking close - yesterday I parked in a garage across the street from the office - problem was, they had no elevator from the third level, which is where they consign all the daily customers. Today I went to the garage next to them. Much better - they valet park, so I only had to make it a short way up the ramp to get to the street.

The morning commute was awful - my usual rout was blocked by an accident. I had to go around the Horn to get to the office - an hour and forty-five minutes. It's usually a forty minute drive.

The days are indeed getting longer - already after sunrise on the way in - twilight on the way home. Sunday after next DST kicks in - hate it! :)

It is 36 degrees outside....here we go again. Thaw in the daytime, freeze at night. Supposed to be above freezing during the day for at least a week. YUCK!!

But it IS getting lighter. Just yesterday I didn’t need to turn on a light to get downstairs in the morning. And I could see the mountains on the way to work. I’m ready for light.

You Are Thoughtful and Happy
You have an optimistic outlook. When troubles come your way, you try to see how you will grow and learn from them.

You feel like you can't depend on anyone but yourself in this world. You feel quite alone sometimes.

You feel relieved about your past and those you have loved. You are happy to be moving on with the future.

You succeed by tapping into your reserves. You have an extraordinary amount of energy and endurance.

Must retire – the 0445 Reveille approaches relentlessly.

The Bugler, his grim visage replete with an evil sneer, already mounts the parapet.

Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!



All Gave Some – Some Gave All!!!

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

Purim was great — I was in Chicago with a friend. Her kids are adorable. It was cold & snowing there; NY right now has the tail end of a storm.
