Remembering Ruth Bell Graham

Ruth Graham, Billy's wife, passed away yesterday. An excerpt from this article gives us a peek into her life:

When the novelist Jan Karon visited the Grahams in their home, she came away with this memory of Ruth:

"Here was this tiny, fragile, yet powerful woman coming toward me in her hallway in black tights, ballet slippers, and the most beautiful white blouse I think I have ever seen. I was swept off my feet by this woman. She had this enormous energy that preceded her down the hallway…And she was so naughty. She just teased [Billy] mercilessly…I thought they were the cutest, sexiest couple I had ever seen."

We don't see many examples of couples who made it through that many decades of marriage with all the lamps still blazing. Leave it to Ruth Bell Graham to show us, brilliantly, how it is done.

Please join with me in praying for Billy and the rest of their family.

"A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers."
-Ruth Bell Graham-
