Measure a Life in Love

On Friday, I attended the memorial service for Grandma C. We drove to her home town, and sat in the church she had been a member of for over seventy years.

In the post entitled In Loving Memory, I discussed how Grandma C embodied love.

Talking with my aunt at the memorial, I uncovered yet another example.

As “the ex” began continually appearing at family gatherings, my aunt got curious. She turned to my grandmother and said, “I think she’s a lesbian.”

Grandma C, in her 80-something years of wisdom and delicate Southern accent, replied simply, “I don’t care about that.”

That is Christian love.
