Happy 90th Birthday, Grandma Stoops!

He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.

The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.

The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S:

but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

The dead praise not the LORD,

neither any that go down into silence.

But we will bless the LORD

from this time forth

and for evermore.

Praise the LORD.

~from Psalm 115

Dear Grandma,

Thank you for raising Mama, your gracious hospitality

wonderful cooking, and your love for us

We have been memorizing Psalm 103, it is so beautiful.

“The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children, to such as keep His covenant and remember His commandments, to do them. The Lord has established His throne in heaven and His kingdom rules over all…Bless the Lord, all His works in all places of His dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul!”

Thank you for your priceless legacy of loving the Word of God, welcoming the blessing of children, and being a godly wife and mother. “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

Love and Blessings!
