Grandma's worry sometimes
Making her WORLD WIDE WEB debut, Dorothy Porter. (Pictured with Uncle Rick and Cousin Nikki) Mother of 6. Grandmother to 19 grandkids,40ish great-grandkids and 3 great-great grandkids. Yikes!That is a lot of procreating.
My dad is printing the web-log entries off (Troy hates the word "blog") and sending them to my granny in Omaha, NE. (Is it a web-log once it leaves the web and is printed on paper? I think it ceases to be a web-log and is just a boring old journal at that point. Maybe not.)
She told us when we hugged her goodbye last weekend that she had supported & prayed for missionaries since she was 24 years old (that is more than 60 years) but now that it is one of her grandkids, (and five of her great's) she is not so sure about it all.
We love you Gran! Don't worry, we will be okay! Below are some verses that our friend from New Joy (our church) sent to me to encourage me. Hopefully they will encourage you.
"This is the first verse that came to my mind when I read your email:
I Samuel 20:42 (NASB) Jonathan said to David, "Go in safety (peace - NIV), inasmuch as we have sworn to each other in the name of the LORD, saying, 'The LORD will be between me and you, and between my descendants and your descendants forever.' " Then he rose and departed, while Jonathan went into the city. Also these:
Matthew 6:34 (NASB) "So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Mattthew 28:20 . . . and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:20 (NASB)"
