Tomorrow will be a glorious Day!!
Ah~~~~YES!!! August 10th will be Martha Meisner’s 102nd Birthday. I would love to grab a cup of coffee and a pecan tart (or 2, or 3, or 4 of them) and sit down with her and listen to her talk about “other years”.
What a long life! What a wonderfully long life!! And all the memories…and all the blizzards and all those knit socks, mittens and mask caps!!! I can only imagine.
More wonderfully though, would be to hear her tell of how God blest her family all through those years. And THAT….He did!!
I thank Him for memories so that when we are old and find ourselves alone we can meander back through memory lane and…………remember. Thank You Father for all you have given us.
Lord, Bless Martha on Friday. Give her Your strength and Your continued care which has no limits. I thank You for the life that You gave to her and Fred and their children and the home that was cemented with Your flavoring of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. And then the gift – – was all wrapped up with a beautiful bow that read, “I will never ever, ever leave you nor forsake you.” WOW!! Lord! You have thought of everything, and we as a Christian Family, praise You and thank You for everything!!
Amen and Amen!!
