When I Grow Up, I Want to Be Like Her

In our study this week, we are asked to list the specific ways God has protected his calling on our lives. Godly grandparents topped my list.

Last night, we celebrated “Ma-Ma’s” 90th birthday! She is my grandmother on my dad’s side and like my grandmother who passed away in December, she has been a constant example of Christ throughout my life.

MaMa (Alberta Scott) was well known in the Fairforest community. She and Pa-Pa were founding members of Fairforest Baptist Church and she worked as the dietitian for Fairforest Elementary School for almost 40 years. Her yeast rolls won prizes and the hearts of many elementary aged children. As mentioned in previous posts, MaMa was the person who introduced me to nursing homes when I was a little girl. She infused me with a love for those who often go unnoticed. Rarely a week would go by when she wouldn’t send me on my bike with half a pound cake for a friend who was sick or lonely. That was then. This is now.

Today, at 90 years old, she continues to read her Bible every day and share Christ with those who serve her at NHC. She understands that her journey and commitment to Him does not, and should not, fade over time. It only grows stronger.

Her life continues to leave an indelible print on my life and so many others.

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
