What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

My tears are dripping off my chin right now. Your Opa and my grandmother sound like they suffer similar days. My grandma was always so happy, loving, kind...always wanted to know what she could get or do to help you feel more comfortable. Now, she's still loving, kind (mostly), but not very happy. She can't remember where she puts things, if she ever had them. She can't remember when anyone came to visit (she thinks we never come visit, though the calander on the wall that everyone signs says differently). Knowing what she used to be breaks my heart to see what she is today. I'm so sorry your Opa is suffering so. I pray comfort and strength for not only Oma, Opa, and for you and your family.
Blessings my dear friend-
Andie

Rebecca what beautiful moments you have captured with your Oma and Opa.

I still have treasured memories of my Omas and Opas (both sides were Dutch), but unfortunately they went to be with Jesus before I even had children.

It is so special that your children have been able to spend time with them and get to know them.
