“For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations” Psalm 100:5

Something I remember most about my Mom was that she loved to read. In spite of that fact that she only had an eighth grade education, she was well read in the classics, and many other books. But because she loved the Lord, what she read most was her well-worn Bible. That means that it was very normal to see her in the big green chair in the living room, or by the dining room table with her Bible; reading and re-reading those passages that gave her so much wisdom, comfort, guidance and strength throughout her lifetime. Up until her last days, at 95 years of age, even with her mind dimmed by dementia and her sight diminished by macular degeneration, Mom would use a magnifying glass and read her large print Bible.

Happy Birthday, Denise!

Today is our oldest child Denise’s birthday. Please understand that I’m not bragging here, just standing in awe of what God was able to do in her life because HE is good, HIS mercy is everlasting and HIS truth endures to all generations…. Denise, who came into our lives 33 years ago, has become a wonderful lady. God has fashioned her into an intelligent, diligent, responsible, fun-loving, caring person. And as if that weren’t enough, she received Christ into her heart at a young age and has delighted in reading His Word ever since. When she was in Junior High and High School in Argentina, she would get up on her own before anyone in the house was up, fix her breakfast and retreat into her room where she would spend time reading her Bible, getting strength for the day. When she went off to college, she continued to do the same. Being a married working woman, she still is drawn to the Word as her source of daily wisdom and strength.

Remembering Mom, and thinking about Denise just confirms again how faithful God is. His truth DOES endure to all generations! It’s a proven fact in our family!

    Happy birthday, Denise!
    It’s so good that Denise is carrying on Grandma’s habits of bible reading early in the morning, and I’m sure she learned this through her Mom! 33 years! You taught her well. God blesses from generation to generation.
