Remembering

KJ and I spent yesterday with his entire family, celebrating the life of his grandfather, Oliver Harrison Pugh.  Though it was sad, and we mourn the loss of Pop, there was an overwhelming sense of thankfulness that permeated our gathering and filled our hearts.  

As for me, I felt thankful to be a part of the Pugh family, thankful for the great grace that has been shown to them/us, thankful for Pop's life and the legacy he left behind, and so thankful for the extra brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and grandparents I've gained by being grafted into this family.

It was good to remember the past and all that the Lord accomplished in Pop's life and good to think about the future grace to be shown to Pop's descendants.  As he told KJ's mom before we left his home a couple of weeks ago, "Take those kids home, and raise them right."  And by God's grace we will.
