|Luke and Mama Trudy - July 1990|
During her 91 years, she made a couple of trips to the Holy Land, where she picked up small New Testaments bound with wood and embellished with the Jerusalem cross.
When I was a young girl, she gave one to me.
And when she was 89 years old, she gave one to my first born, Luke.
Her inscription - her prayer - for her grandson still touches and moves me today.
I often pray it for Luke and for all my children - for Hannah, David, Faith, Elizabeth, and Mary Grace.
Yes, Lord, may they read it often and may they grow in wisdom and stature with God.
Thank you, Mama Trudy, for my precious heritage and this precious gift.
