The memory of the righteous will be a blessing... Proverbs 10:7a
Last weekend, a dear friend of mine was able to do what she had been looking forward to for a long, long time. She was able to come face-to-face with her beloved Lord and Savior.
For the years that I have known her, she has truly been a blessing – in every sense of the word. When my husband and I (or just my husband) would get ready to leave on a mission trip, she prayed. Every time I visited her, she prayed. In the days before her convalescence, she walked the aisles of our church and she prayed. When I went to see her in the care facility and told her of a need or an upcoming trip, she would say, “Let’s pray right now.” She would take my hand and pray.
When. I asked her to consider reviewing my devotional book and suggesting corrections, she prayed about it and then she did it – giving many helpful suggestions that I implemented.
As I read Proverbs 10:7a – The memory of the righteous will be a blessing – I know that until we see each other again in Heaven, it will be her memory that blesses me. And it will.
What a blessing it was to know her. What a blessing it is to have memories of her.
Her name is Mary Ann Boubel.
