Dedicated To Hebrews And Little Missionary Julie
This week as Gracey and I and Mom were unpacking Mom Golden's belongings, she came across the "Promise Bible" that you had mailed to Dad Golden and it was such a comfort to her.
Every so often I would catch her with her head into that tiny book.
Tiny...Yes! But with a huge comfort to her!
This evening in prayer meeting she had her head into that book again, so when nobody was looking, I took my tiny camera out of my purse and snapped a quick photo of her as she sat beside me..
After she had looked a little while at that tiny book, she whispered into my ear, "I think that I will give this book to Lori...It has been such a help to me!"
She signed the book and after meeting she DID give it to Lori.
Now Lori is a young mother in the assembly whose husband was taken quite ill three weeks ago.
He has kidney trouble and the doctors still don't know what is causing it.
He is on dialysis and is in the Macmaster Hospital in Hamilton.
His name is Darren Kucman, if you would like to pray for him.
Anyways, I said to Mom..."That is Dad's book Mom!"
I will have to ask my friend Hebrews to send me another one!"
"OK", she said..
So what do you think of that Lil Pilgrim?
Look at all the people that you are encouraging!!
You are a very precious person to so many and you don't even know it!!
Here is the picture of the tiny Promise Book as I laid it on my bible and sneakily took a picture.
It is a little blurry but like I said, I had to do it sneakily and quickly!
And here is Mom Golden as she buries her head into the book to read it!
The hymn we sang tonight was so beautiful..
Here it is Hebrews and Little Missionary, Julie...
He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater
He sendeth more strength when the labours increase,
To added affliction, He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When strength has declined ere the day is half-done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father's full giving is only begun.
His love has no limit,His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men,
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth and giveth and giveth again.
