My grandmother (Maw Maw Elkins) recently died. I want to write to tell the world about her and about how much I miss her and about what she meant to me.
I had a maw maw who loved me with every fiber of her being. She was so gentle and kind. She loved Gospel Music and loved to listen to the Gaithers. Everytime I came to visit her she would hug me tight and would not hardly let me go. She would sit and talk for hours and we would always go to the Dollar Store or just look around in the Mall. Those times with Maw Maw where so precious and I miss her so much. She could not get around much, and she was a simple woman, but her love for Jesus and for her family was as strong as concrete. I saw so much love and so much grace in her everyday life. She had the fruit of the spirit every day I saw her. She would always ask me to sing for her and wanted to hear my songs . She was such a precious person and the world will never be the same without my precious Maw Maw. When she died. I was in Florida in my room , playing the guitar and praying to God. I was playing and singing the song , It is well with my soul. The holy spirit was trying to comfort me , even before I even knew she had died. Our family was planning a trip to Panama City to all meet for mother's Day. My maw maw packed her bags to see us all, but she did not make the trip. Instead she made the eternal trip. We did not expect it , or even have a clue that she was going to die then. I never knew. That's why everyone should always tell the ones you love how much you love them. No man knows the hour of loved ones departure. Well when I was playing the guitar, I heard a phone call. My mom picked up the phone and started to scream and I heard the pain , I felt the pain. Even though I knew something bad had happened, I felt the peace of God. I felt God's presence all around. My Maw Maw, had the car packed to take the trip, and went out at night to add another bag to the car and suddenly had a heart attack and dropped by the car. My grandfather found her and he is still having a hard time. I miss her and can almost see her smile. Her gentle peaceful smile. I will never know a love as pure as my Maw Maw Elkins who loved like Jesus would. I pray that all who read this article will tell the ones you love that you love them. I pray that if you do not know Jesus that you will be saved and accept Him as Lord of your life. Do not take life for granted ,nor the every day things such as spending time with your maw maw talking or just shopping. They are precious memories, so just treat your family right and show God's love to them. God Bless you all, Melody Danehower
