Today is Veterans Day—My Grandma also passed today. (time lapse for post)

Today is Veterans Day—My Grandma also passed today.
.
The older we get, I think the bigger picture begins to enlighten our minds. There is a much broader understanding of God’s plan for us—at least for me, that’s the case.
.
I want to thank all of our wonderful Veteran’s for the sacrifices they’ve made so I can live in “The Land of The Brave. Home of The Free.”
.
I’m sure, as you enjoy today, you’ll have floods of memories come back to you—some good and some not so good. The important part, you’ve blessed us with your service.
.
Today, I reflect on the memories of my Grandma. She married my grandpa—a Naval Veteran. When my grandpa passed away, she re-married. Her next husband was a proud U.S. Naval Veteran of World War II serving as Crew Captain of over one-hundred confirmed PBY plane rescue missions in the South Pacific.
.
My Grandma outlived them both and took charge of her own “family army.” She was strong and had a powerful testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She wasn’t afraid to share her testimony of the restored church. She lead her own army of God here on earth and helped drive forward the work of the Lord.
.
Today is a great reunion in Heaven. She has been welcomed home by many loved ones; most importantly, her husband, her son, who passed away as a baby, her parents, and so many friends.
.
It’s also a sad day for all who mourn her passing. She can now tend to her Heavenly garden, which we all know will be beautiful when we see her again.
.
To all of you military Veterans, the Savior said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
“For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28–30).
.
Many of us carry heavy burdens. Some have lost a loved one to death, and some have lost many to death. To you I say, Hear Him!
.
Grandma Nae, you share a special day with so many Veterans. I love you and I’ll see you soon—Mikey.
