News from Mina Oglesby

May 2016

Hello, dear friends!!

Here it is, just a few days away from Mother's Day! Of course, we are in meetings out of town (as usual for the past 34 years!!) so in that way it is a lonely time for me...BUT I have memories! Memories of how faithful the LORD has been to me, memories of my three children, four grandchildren, and two GREATgrandchildren...and memories of the mother he gave me. I was so blessed to have her in my life until past her 86th birthday—what a joy she was to our whole family! A simple Kansas farm wife and mother...but with a heart bigger than she was...always my encourager, for some reason she thought I was SPECIAL and had a way of always letting me know it. I was the youngest of six, and Mama thought she was through with childbearing when she found out...she said it was blazing hot in Kansas during her pregnancy, and she would be hoeing out in the soybean field and angry at the thoughts of ANOTHER child...she jokingly said she didn't speak to my father for 3 months after she found out (surely she was joking. But, trust me, I became their "little chicken" and they both thought they had laid the "golden egg!" Mama knew my weaknesses and orneriness and tried to make me behave, but she said I had my dad twisted around my little finger (he was 47 when I was born!) I can remember her tender care whenever I would get sick or hurt...her words of love...she taught me how to sew as I sat on her lap while SHE sewed...

Mama came to know the Lord later in life and followed the Lord in believer's baptism when she was 75 years old! How she loved the Lord! She was faithful in church attendance, in her Bible reading and prayer, and in tithing and giving special gifts to Him. What a wonderful example she was to us all!!

The Lord allowed Eddie and me to be at her side, holding her hands and quoting her favorite Psalm, when she slipped out into Jesus' arms...what a blessing for us!! Thank you, Lord, for such wonderful memories, which keep Mother's Day alive and so happy!!

We are in beautiful West Virginia for two weeks of meetings, flying home after Mother's Day—and finishing our spring meetings. Arriving home, we will continue the sorting, packing, throwing away, and saving for the estate sale to be held in our house later this summer...pray for us as you think of us...big stuff in the works BUT the Lord is able!!!

Love you, and hope to see you somewhere along the trail!!

Eddie and Mina
