How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog – it’s here a little while then it’s gone. James 4:14
Abruptly on Saturday April 29th, 2023 Paul’s earthly journey came to an end. With his last breath he shed this mortal body and lept into eternity. Anyone who has witnessed his daily struggle for the past couple of years can’t even begin to imagine the new spring he has in his step.
He arrived in Granum on Mother’s day 1973 with his wife Kay and their daughter Gayle. It was a difficult adjustment for them as they were referred to as “transients”. What a proper name to be called when you believe in Christ and try to live as if this world is not your home.
In 1990 they moved barely out of town to their spacious country home and yard. Paul loved life in the outdoors communing in God’s creation, especially when Spring came round. Enjoying every minute puttering in the garden, pruning bushes and watching Kay’s “10,000” colourful flowers bloom.
He was thrilled when he could say, “Sanford and Son” – Steven and later when it became “Sanford and Grandson” – Brandon followed by “Sanford and Granddaughter” – Kayla.
The fellowship of believers meant so much to him - Sunday worship service, visiting, choir and Bible Studies of all kinds. He was elated to be part of the Family of God, sharing with everyone he met. He interceded daily to the Lord for his earthy family.
