Well, I seem to have slipped back in to my old ways, not posting often! However I did have a very busy week last week,I last posted on the Saturday now when I look at my blog I’m sick to death looking at the back of my own head lol as I’m sure you are !So here goes ,Well on the Sunday, Maurice’s brother and his wife Jackie came to visit ,and then on the Monday , thats a week today,because Maurice wasn’t driving still (he has done a bit now, just up to our town )Pete my sister Jean’s husband came to get me and we all went to Dear Jenny’s funeral ,Jo is my niece and Jean and Pete’s daughter ,Jenny was her Mother in law, Tony’s Mum ,I hope I have explained that ok ! Jenny died suddenly the week before it was such a shock for us all, if it is possible to have a lovely funeral, then this one was, Jenny was a lovely Lady slightly younger than me ,her Dear Husband David had died four years ago ,and she never really got over losing him ,she had missed him so much ,they had been together since she was thirteen ,meeting each other at the Methodist Sunday School ,Jenny’s faith was strong all her life ,and her service was to quote her sister ” Just Jenny”, We started with the’ Hymn How Sweet the name of Jesus Sounds’, after the opening prayers . Her eldest Granddaughter Beth read a psalm so beautifully, And her Daughter Karen, told us some lovely things about her Mum ,and read a poem of her Mothers, Jenny wrote the most wonderful poetry ,and has been published ,Whilst Tony, Karen and Jo ,were searching among Jenny’s things for Jenny’s’ list ‘which they all felt sure she had left ,but couldn’t find anywhere ,they decided at least some of Jenny’s poems should be read at the service ,so after selecting the ones most appropriate ,they went to put the folder of poems away ,and there on the table was a piece of paper ,it was Jenny’s list !so we were able to sing the hymns Jenny had loved ,and her family were able to carry out her wishes ,We then sang ,Immortal, Invisible, God only wise ,and then Tony told us his memory’s of his Mum ,and thanked her for all she had done for them ,he then also read one of his Mothers poems ,that she had written after a visit to her childhood home village ,so very moving ,The service closed with the hymn ,’Oh Lord My God, when I in awesome wonder ,……We all went back to the Beautiful old Orton hall, for a lovely meal and lots of family chat, and Corrine, Jenny’s sister and I slipped outside in the afternoon sunshine and to talk about how Jenny and I would slip away for a crafty puff too ! Corrine left me with this thought, which I thought I would share with you all, When you seem to be burdened with troubles and worry’s that you really cant do any thing about, “Let Go, Let God”…I wont tell you about the rest of the week on this entry ,but will pop back later , So as usual Love
