Donna Jean at Liberty and Lily wrote a wonderfully touching post about her aging and mentally infirm grandmother. The piece is long but well worth the read. The article illustrates the lasting bond that exists between grandparent and grandchild. It also speaks to the enduring and encouraging power of God's Word stored in our hearts and minds, and it testifies to the staying power and lifelong benefit of early immersion in worthwhile literature.

As dementia steals Donna Jean's Grandmother's mind, scripture and good literature remain firmly embedded there because Mimi dwelled on these things when her mind was strong. In Philippians 4:8, Paul tells his congregation,

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Be sure to read the last few paragraphs of Donna Jean's post.
