We were going through old pictures tonight and I saw this one of our family in 1958, 61 years ago. A lot of history has happened in the last 61 years. I was looking at this picture of my mom, comparing it with the one taken a few days ago, and the obvious conclusion is that Mom has used up everything she had in the last 61 years raising her family and serving the Lord. Someone said yesterday of Mom that she has a lot of grit, that word describes her life well. I think of what the Apostle Paul said at the end of his life in 2 Timothy, “I have finished the race that was set before me”, that is my Mom.
