J – Sharing God’s Word

Throughout the stay in McLeod’s Hospice House, mama and I would share God’s word together.  I would read aloud to her from the old family Bible that stayed on her bedside table.  When mama was able to early in her stay, she would pick a verse from a hand-written book I kept and we’d say “this is our verse for the day”.  One particular morning, I flipped the little verse book in front of her and told her to just poke her hand in it to select a page for our daily verse.  The page she picked was a blank one.  At this, she said, “Oh my, that’s not good.”  But I assured her how it was totally good, because we could fill it up together!  It was Lamentations 3:22-23, which reads: Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!

Here are some pics from our daily doses of scripture:
