One Awesome Lady

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who gives reverance to the Lord is to be praised.  Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.  Proverbs 31: 30- 31

I don't have to look far for a shining example of strength, dignity, hardwork, laughter, joy,....   While we celebrated a week ago, today is the official birthday of this mighty woman.

Today Millie is 95 years old. 

 Among other things, she has endured losing her mom as a toddler and her step-mom as a young girl. She was widowed in her forties and left to raise 3 children while holding down a full-time job to support them and she is a breast cancer survivor of over thirty years now.  So what does SHE have to smile about?  She's had a very hard life.  Well, she won't hesitate to tell ya why she smiles- she's got Jesus.
The Joy of the Lord is her Strength. 

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. Proverbs 31:25

Thank you for your example, Grams.  We love you!   Happy Birthday!
