We are beginning to get our feet under us and find daily life again without tears and so much pain at the loss of Grandpa Nelson. Our hearts still ache not having him here, we miss him terribly, we long for one more hug and kiss, and one more conversation.....BUT....he is in God's hands now and he is being carefully loved and cared for by God and his Son. What could be better than that? We are joyous for that. He is not suffering, he is not sad, he is not having to spend his days at the nursing home. He is HOME! We cling to that and that gives us hope. It will just take time to make this adjustment here on this Earth without him. I just wanted to share some pics.
Grandpa watching Haley ride her horse in the parade....Chief is the spotted one.
Some of the grands and great grands!This is my one of my favorite pictures of Grandpa. Haley took this of Gpa at church. What better way to sum up Grandpa than to see him in prayer and with his songbooks and Bible right near him. He was a Godly man who believed in his Savior Jesus Christ.
And his pride and joys...his 13 grandchildren!
Here are the grandkids and wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends, and 2 of his great grandkids.
(Missing one granddaughter in law and great granddaughter!)
We love you Grandpa Nelson!
We are continuing to pray for Grandma Sharon and for Grandma Ruth as she adjusts to life without her sweetheart.
King James Version (KJV)
28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
