This is my beloved grandma, with Ryan at his first birthday, with me at my first birthday, and with Jared at his first month celebration. She passed away last Tuesday at the age of 103. We miss her terribly. Knowing she is with the Lord is our great comfort. As Jared prayed, thank you God for sending ''ah zhor'' (great grandma) to Heaven.
Grandma led an amazing life, coming to Singapore from China at age of 17, she had an education which was very rare for girls in China then, got married, had a big family, survived the war, ran a business, was always active, had no illness and had never been in hospital, and even in her mid nineties, travelled to China every year! A fall two years ago weakened her, yet to the last day she was well, eating well and quietly went in her sleep. Thank you God for that.
She was in her sixties when I was born, and my memories of her are of her simply being there for us, always encouraging, always quiet and gentle, always with a smile.
I plan to get more photos of her earlier days and make more layouts about her, but making this first one today was very good....

This week this verse has been my encouragement, like to share it and bless you too:
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
