Willa Elizabeth Morgan Ivey

Happy 96th birthday Ivey!

It was such a joy to visit with her a couple of times last week. She got to watch the boys toss their frisbee toe each other, listen to their belly-laughing "knock-knock" jokes, and bring her her favorite meal for a birthday surprise: a loaded hotdog and Pepsi. I guess if you have lived that long, you can eat whatever you want...

Mom and Ivey

Last week while cleaning out Ivey's home with my mom, I came across her personal Bible. Inside the front cover read:
"If you are ready to live life for Jesus Christ, then you must also be ready to die for Him as well."

She has been such a model of the Proverbs 31 woman for me and I am eternally grateful!
