Even When I am Old and Gray
“O Lord, do not forsake me, even when I am old and gray, until I declare your strength to another generation.” (Ps. 71:18)
Our heart's cry: not to be forsaken when we are vulnerable. This journal describes my mother's last years with me. She was two months shy of one hundred.
Past experiences, memories, and values color the person she was. Bits of these and her letters to me are included. She describes what she feels as she faces different kinds of losses and her source of strength. Into the narrative are added the modern challenges my large family faced and recent news headlines. That we may declare God's strength and love to another generation.
