The Show Goes On

This picture was taken in 2002, I think. See my sweet Grandmother sitting there with my little nephew in her lap? She's in the presence of Jesus now. This was my daughter's facebook status this morning:
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will exist no longer, grief, crying, and pain will exist no longer, because the previous things have passed.
I have been sitting in my office much of the day trying to prep for Fusion tomorrow. I'm working on the desktop computer but have the laptop open on the corner of the desk -- it's playing a slideshow my brother made for my Grandmother's 90th birthday celebration a couple of years ago. I've played it over and over again. There are pictures from the time my grandparents were young until recent times. The last song my brother chose to use for the slideshow is a Bruce Hornsby song called "The Show Goes On." I have no idea what the song lyrics mean or why my brother chose that song. But this I know, life goes on. I will miss my Grandmother but she had a great life and leaves a wonderful legacy. I have such great memories; things that I haven't thought about in years until last Thursday and today. I'll keep holding on to those and try to pass some down to my own kids. They never knew my other grandparents or anything about Bluff Vue. All the more reason to live with purpose and to make it count. Life is but a glimpse, a vapor. Now I see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but I long to see face to face. Now I know in part, but Lexie Lou knows fully. Her vision is completely clear. Finally.
Serving the King,
