"There's no safer place than in the palm of God's hand.  With peace as our shelter, we rest in his plan.  Though trials may try us we've learned what is true.  With wisdom and grace, he will carry us through."

I've toiled and labored and run the good race
Now sunset has fallen to rest on my face.
Though my earthly flesh no longer I wear,
Do not fret; do not worry for my soul is not there.
Do not sorrow and weep my children just know.
I'm in the house of the LORD wearing my heavenly robe.

Sometimes we walk around being strong and carrying the world on our shoulders. Thinking we got it all figured out.  Not really understanding where you got your strength.  Today I've realized I've been walking around and living on the strength and love of the matriarch of the family.  Today for the first time in my life my feet have touched the ground!  Eleanor Mae Jackson My Granny has moved on to be with the Lord! And as much as it hurt I know you will continue to hold us up.  I want you to know I will continue to keep my arms open and keep trying to help and love everybody! Your love of God and continuous prayer for everyone was your life. Uncle spud take care of Granny til we get there.  8-21-17 My angel has her wings. This will be hard but I promise I won't let you down.  RIH ELEANOR MAE JACKSON.
