Each of us has our own special connection with Granny, and one of Eric's has been that she listened to him on the radio each M-F afternoon/evening from 2-10. When she moved from Illinois 5 years ago, Christian radio immediately became one of her best friends. Eric is going to miss knowing that she is on the receiving end of his ministry.
My granny loved gospel music. She played the guitar, and always had a special fondness for Southern Gospel. She took Ryan and Evan to a Legacy Five concert in February, and loved every minute of it.
Her radio was on day and night, and it wasn't unusual to find her reading the newspaper - with a book turned upside down on her lap, the radio blaring, and her dvd player competing with the radio. She loved it all. :-)
Granny was unassuming. She was satisfied in knowing that Jesus had given Himself for her sins, and she was amazed at His love for her. That was enough to satisfy her heart completely. Here is Jason Crabb and The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir...
We love you, Granny. I especially enjoyed shopping for you this morning. I know your Heavenly robes are more stunning that what we picked for you to wear to your funeral, but I still think you would have liked the new dress. :-)
