How I thank You Heavenly Father, for my dear, dear grandmother. She has always been such a special support and encouragement to me, especially as I was growing up and finding out about life and living. She has given me so much of her gentle wisdom and good advice, never being judgemental, but always fair and kind.
Thank You for the wonderful example she has been throughout my life of a godly woman who loves Jesus first and foremost, and for the unique way that she lovingly gently nudges me to turn to You, in all the circumstances of my life. Thank You for placing her in my life. Thank You, that I have had the opportunity of learning so much from her, for her knowledge of the Scriptures and her delight to turn to You in prayer, day by day.
Lord, now that she is getting older, I pray that You would keep Your loving arms around her and protect her from harm. Guard and guide her, protect her and provide all that she needs. Draw her ever closer to Yourself. In Jesus' name,
