A couple weeks ago we got the very unexpected sad news that my Aunt Paula had passed away at the young age of 63. Thankfully she passed away peacefully in her sleep. Now, Aunt Paula and I were not incredibly close. She was my Aunt and I loved her but she moved to Lebanon when I was young so I never really had a close relationship with her. I am very sad for all the family she left behind including my cousins and their kids as well as my Aunt Lucy and my Dad. I know it must be incredibly difficult to lose a family member like that. My wife and I continue to pray for all of them.
So, I am sure you are thinking it is rather odd to do a drawing of a smiling face during this sad time. When I was thinking of what I could draw to remember her I thought about how restless her life was. How she was always moving around and trying new things looking for happiness. The reason for the smiley face is I know she knew the Lord and I know that finally she is no longer restless. I believe she is sitting right next to our creator with a big smile on her face. Here is to an eternity of happiness for her.
