Today I am reflecting on Titus 2( what we learn from other women) My late grandmother Oleta King, was a great woman. She passed away when I was still very young & dumb you might say. Still trying to make it in this world and thought I knew it all. Looking back over my countless memories of her, the one thing that sticks out over and over is she showed me Jesus. She never let us miss church, she was a rule follower. We never missed a 5th Sunday singing(she was baptist)Church was very important to her and her duty to share Christ with us. I wish I had a picture of her Bible to show you. My mother let me comb through it last summer,it is covered in ink. Ink she added on every page. Notes she took from sermons, a prayer request, a telephone number of a friend in need , an address to take a meal,and her thought about God. That was her notebook on life.
As I poured over the pages I was overwhelmed. I was reminded how active in the church she was. She could sing oh my could she sing. I still tear up to the Old Rugged Cross and what it meant to her every time we sing it. Did I mention she always had Big Red gum, well she did. Never seemed to have run out of it, I think every grandma has something like that we can remember.
I just wished I had the chance to tell her all of this, she would have been so proud. God is so good, all we need to do is open our eyes,look around, help the hurting,listen to those in need, and count our blessings, So maw-maw (King) this one is for you. Thank you Lord for blessing me with a sweet grandma who showed me your wonderful grace and mercy.
