A new friend recently asked me how I got my screen name.I got to thinking that maybe some of you might be wondering,too.So here's the meaning of...

 

When I 1st came to the internet,I was deeply grieving the passing of my newest granddaughter.I'd physically let her go,but my heart still wanted to hold her.Thus,I took the "mcg" from the beginning of our last name + the "rissa" from her 1st name & I became "mcgrissa".All the time that she was growing in her mama & for the week that I was able to hold her in my arms,I'd nicknamed her my little "rissa".That's what I whispered in her ear.Her name is "Charissa Grace"...it means "God's Grace".Although I can't hold her here,I ask God to give her hugs all the time.I look forward to the day when I arrive at Heaven's gate & she'll be peeking out from behind His white robe...I'll recognize her eyes...& she'll say "Busha,it's MY turn now"...& she'll run to give me a big hug! The best part is,we'll never have to be parted again.

Feb. 1, 2008 at 10:37 AM Thanks for sharing that. It was deeply moving. I don't know how you feel, losing someone close but I know how you feel about heaven. My fav scripture Rev. 21:4. No more crying, no more sorrow, no more death......What a glorious place!

Oh, what a tender explanation.  Really sweet.  I know what it is to lose a baby.  I grieved for a long time after too.  Just love the gentle sweetness of a newborn.  Nothing like it!!
