I wrapped it in a gift bag and took it to my grandmother. “I just wanted to thank you for being such a great role model for my mother and me. Happy birthday. I don’t know what I’d do without you.”
“Thank you so much, Baby.” She took the gift out of the shopping bag and studied the picture in silence.
“I have just the place for this fine work of art.” She removed one old picture from the wall and replaced it with my gift. “You know why I put that picture there? So that those three women could look at the gift your mother gave me before she died.”
To the right of my gift was another picture of a cross with lettering superimposed on top which said: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
“Don’t look to me. I might just let you down, and I won’t always be here. Look where I’m looking and where your mother always looked for wisdom and strength—to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit -- that threefold cord will never let you down and will never be broken. And that’s my gift of words to you-even though it’s not your birthday.”
