Isaiah 46:3b-4a I have created you and cared for you since you were born. I will be
your God through all your lifetime, Yes, even when your hair is white with age. I made you and I will care for you.”
I was asked to take some photos of my grandparents. They are both such amazing people and have been such an influence on so many people in their eighty plus years on this earth.
They are so deeply loved by their children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. There are so many great memories of the time spent with them.
There is beauty in these hands. Even though my grandma has dementia, and has some good days and some bad days, she is loved and she is beautiful in her old age. The stories that she could tell are now gone...
I think we, as her family, feel fairly protective over her now, almost like a parent is protective of a child. It breaks our heart to see her slowly slip away from us more and more. We are thankful that her body is healthy and that she isn't suffering that way.
My Opa is extremely protective of her. He is her primary caretaker and it is not an easy job. But he loves her unconditionally. I took this photo because my Opa always has one hand in his pocket, jiggling the coins.
How blessed my grandma is to have a husband like this. Who has mellowed over the years, who never complains, who just wants his wife's last days to be the best they can be.
Isaiah 46:4 (NIV) “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain
you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
