    I first met this little gal last October. She was one of our new admits to my unit. It was the usual normal admit 95 years old, declining condition, and very frail. But you know this little one had the faith of a mustard seed in her hand. When I got to the part of the assessment where I had to ask her what her life work had been she stated simply housekeeper/sunday school teacher.
    I thought this was good, but was I to get an awakening! She it turned out started teaching Sunday school to the little bitties of the community when she was but 16 years old. And giving it up just a month before coming to be with us, figuring quickly in my head I came to an astouding figure this lady had been teaching little ones about Jesus for 79 years! This little lovely lady has been through it big time, in and out of the hospital and back to the facility for short stretches, then back to the hospital.
    She would annoy a couple of the aides because she would quote scriptures to them, I would tell her just to keep it up and would quote one back to her.
    She lost her battle with her illness at 4:10am CST on 1/25/04. And I am virtually certain that God does indeed have a new angel in heaven as this is written, and she is teaching the little bitties of heaven about how wonderful it is to bask in Jesus' loving light!
    Thank you for letting me share the story of one dear lady's devotion to Jesus and his wonderful gospel. I just hope that someday when I am her age I can still speak to share the love of the gospel like she did!

    What a wonderful testimony that lovely lady left; How wonderful to be remembered!! I am sure she is with the Lord Jesus, and He is holding His faithful child.

    So very touching and admonishing to me, that my faithflness seems so very small, yet the One Who saved me is ever faithful, Praise His Glorious Name!!!...thank you for sharing, God Bless you, love, blessings

    Thank You so much for sharing such a lovely story with all of us.

    Before I became disabled. I worked in a hospital on the support care unit and some of the eldery people that I worked with were astouding.

    It always gave me a warm feeling in my heart to listen to their stories.

    I'm sure that lady is in Heaven and rejoicing.

    Many Blessings to you, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>
