“Mrs. Collins” and Buddy

wp-1472726086840.jpegHer name is Billie, but she will long be remembered as ‘Mrs. Collins”. His name is Buddy and he is an inspiration.  Billie is one of my favorite ‘bright spots’.  She has given her life to GOD’s service and answered HIS call, without question.  I love to get into “Big Band” trivia contests with her. I shall miss her and her dedication to our Old Time Radio efforts. She made our first presentation a success.  Now, Buddy is a different blessing.  Totally blind for years, he spent his early life as the manager of a store. Even though blind, he found help that was dependable and for forty-years, was successful.  He loves music and can play the piano, but is reluctant to do so, due to ‘lack of practice’.  This photo was taken during our regular Sunday worship here at the Village. To witness the courage and strength of those who are weakened by old age, it reminds me of that great hymn that says, “It Is Well With My Soul”. For those who lighten the corners, I praise GOD.  That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
