Today’s preacher – on her 90th birthday last November
I sat down at the computer this morning, ready to write a post about a significant expense that is coming our way. I wrote about DH’s “brace-lift” over at Fruclassity a couple of days ago, and I was prepared to share an even more significant new expense today. But when I sat down, “my gut”, as Laurie put it in a recent post, told me not to. At least not today.
What I feel led to post today is a 7-minute audio recording of my mother. She is 90 years old, and I want to be like her when I grow up. She is frail, but she still volunteers on church committees and in the community, helping the elderly (!) and the physically and mentally challenged. She still hosts bridge parties and has a great network of friends.
At one of her church committee meetings, she presented the “opening reflection”. The church minister was so impressed with it that she asked my mom to present it to the whole congregation. In February, she did. Two of my sisters and I were able to attend the service, and we were so moved. So proud.
Do you have 7 minutes? If you listen and are touched by her words, please leave a comment. I’ll share it with my mom.
(Click “Listen to the audio recording”. I tried to embed the recording, but it’s much clearer this way.)
Your comments are welcome. I’ll share them with my mom.
