Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. Proverbs 31 :10-31
That was Mrs. Wilson, my favorite Sunday school and mother of my childhood friend, Susan. Mrs. Wilson taught me about a loving and Good Shepherd, Jesus, as she helped me to memorize Psalm 23, and also Psalm 100. She was one of the most Godly and precious Christians I have ever known, and though it was about 55 years ago, I still remember how she lovingly taught us. Now she is with Jesus, The Good Shepherd, and with her sweet daughter, Susan. Absent from the body, present with the Lord. My heart goes out to Mr. Wilson, and Jeff. May you be comforted in the Lord. She and Susan are so loved.
