Friday I went to my grandmother’s funeral. She died at 100 years old. Several of us told stories about her, some of which I did not know. It was so good to hear those new stories because they confirmed what I suspected and hoped: that her faith was s big part of her life. I only suspected because I had never had any direct conversations with her about it. What I learned was that she had won over my hot-tempered grandpa after 50 years of marriage. I already knew that she had passed on her faith to her two girls, my mother and aunt. They in turn had passed on their faith to my generation. We are in the midst of passing that faith to our children. I can imagine no greater legacy than that, to know that my great grandchildren are walking with the Lord.
One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts. (Psalm 145:4 ESV)
