Story by friend and classmate Harry Lee Strong, San Juan Community Church, CO, sent by email today following “The Words of Childhood” – April 28, 2012
Yesterday I visited 94-year old Angie again.
Her daughter had called Thursday and said:
“Hospice gives Mom two weeks – could you please try to see her soon.”
In my five months with Angie, I’d never gotten more than a smile.
As I was preparing to leave yesterday, I said,
“I’m preaching on the Shepherd Psalm Sunday – you remember it, right?
‘The Lord is my shepherd …’
Precious Angie’s lips began to move …
She stayed with me all the way through the green pastures and the still waters.
(You ALL know the story line – I went to minister to her – & Angie turned the tables …)
