He has not failed Thee in all the past.
And will he go and leave thee to sink at last?
Nay, he said he will hide Thee
Beneath His Wing;
And sweetly there in safety Thou mayest sing.
"The Lord is they keeper"
Today, Sunday, January 19, 2014, I'm writing this post to share the 'Stay Firm' message
and how it came to be a part of my Mother's Family History.
I've written about both my Grandmother and Mother many times here on CollectInTexas Gal. They have been the inspiration and focus for posts about Sewing, Aprons, Cooking, Hankies, Dishes, The 1940's and more. I've often
blamed given credit to Mother for my being a 'Saver and Collector'.
Thank-you Mother for passing on the 'Keeper Gene'. I'm sure it is a part of our DNA...as I am now convinced that Minnie and who knows before her were also 'Keepers'. How else would her 'Stay Firm' plaque, her Twenty Years Membership pin and her 1913 Bible have been preserved and treasured all these years for her Granddaughter to find in your Treasured Piano Bench among the Hymnals and sheet music? How did you know I would 'Stay Firm' in our 'Keepers of Treasures' and find them... there in safety...where my heart and soul would...Thou mayest sing?
Thank-you Grandmother for your 'Stay Firm' belief's and your dedication to
His House and Word.
You have passed on a priceless treasure of 'Faith' in knowing...
.... he said he will hide Thee Beneath His Wing...
Rest In Heavenly Peace 'Beneath His Wings' Sweet Mother!
