On my walls words are stenciled. Small Lad grew excited the first time he recognized this design as words, words to read. Up he hopped on the back of the sofa (not an action approved by his mother, by the way) so he could get close enough to read the archway. It occurred to the Grand-Nan that these were important words and to assist in his reading. "Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations...." That is why this photo, while lacking in resolution, is so important. He is listening as the words are read aloud, those dear words that have come down the generations.
Today's Psalter reading begins with Psalm 102.
"..My days are gone like a shadow:
and I am withered like grass.
But Thou, Lord, shall endure for ever;
and Thy remembrance throughout all generations...
that they may declare the Name of the Lord in Sion..
The children of thy servants shall continue
and their seed shall stand fast in thy sight."
That is the reason for wall words, for repeating them to Small Lad.
My time 'as the grass' is definitely in the withering stage.
But my prayer for all our dear Grands and Greats is that they will grow,
stand fast and shine forth in their generations.
And that they will always love words..particularly the Eternal words of Truth.
