Family is so important to me,
but today I want to focus on "SISTERS"!
|This is a picture of my Mom and her older sister. Unfortunately, her older sister died in the great influenza outbreak shortly after this picture was taken|
|When my Mom passed away in May 1994, we sisters put our hands together for this picture.|
My younger sister Marye had the photo framed and matted for me
with this inscription by Alexander Irvine in "My Lady of the Chimney" posted above it:
"...As gently as an autumn leaf falls, she laid her hand on Eliza's head.
"Ah woman, God isn't a printed book to be carried around by a man in fine clothes,
nor a cross danglin' at the watch chain of a priest.
God takes a hand wherever He can find it,
and just does what He likes with it.
Sometimes He takes a Bishop's hand and lays it on a child's head in benediction,
and then He takes the hand of a doctor to relieve pain;
the hand of a mother to guide a child;
He takes the hand of a poor old craither like me - to give comfort to a neighbor.
But, they're all hands touched by His Spirit,
and His Spirit is everywhere lookin' for hands to use."
|Can you pick out who the sisters are in this picture?|
Yes, ...Thank you, God, for SISTERS!
