A Blessing Remembered
She welcomed me into her family with grace and provided support and encouragement all of her life. She played a mean game of Scrabble and could recite the names of all the United States presidents. Her creamed corn, made with Silver Queen corn grown in her garden, was the best thing I've ever eaten. She gave me sewing advice and shared her recipes. But her greatest influences were her profound faith, her gentle spirit, and her unconditional love for her family.
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
