Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

Family Ties

Liz Anne posted about our Great Grandfather -- Path of Sprinkles -- (er, that is, her GREAT GREAT grandfather....).

I had posted earlier about the book that featured him (who would have ever thunk that their GGF would be in a NOVEL, of all things) James Scott Bell, Glimpses of Paradise.

Not that he had a huge part, but nonetheless.....

Anyway (I'm sure I was going somewhere with this) I thought that this item that was posted had a great deal of merit.... For those of you who are Biola alumni/fans you will recognize this as part of their Torrey conference:

Anyway, what I wanted to mention was that R.A. prayed for his children, his grandchildren, and his great-grandchildren. I'm one of the greats. My children (and Liz Anne and her sibs, etc) are the great-greats. And I want you to know that the most amazing thing is that his prayers extended to the great greats. The number of R.A's descendants -- to the 4th generation -- that are totally sold out for Jesus is astonishing.

Keep praying. Keep up the R.A. Torrey legacy. Keep praying.
