A tribute to my mom

Jesus with his mother

Henry Ossawa Tanner, Christ and His Mother Studying the Scriptures, c. 1909. Oil on canvas, 48.75 x 40 in. Dallas Museum of Art, Texas, USA.

My coming into the Christian faith is due to the influence of many, but prominent among those many is my mother, who spent many an evening teaching me Bible verses as a kid. (She often used the song method. I can still remember the little ditty she wrote for Ephesians 4:32…) Those memorized pieces of scripture were seeds that stayed planted in my head for years until I finally came to personally profess what they profess.

Thanks, Mom, for being for me such a patient teacher of God’s Word. I love you!
