a completed portrait

When the Portrait is Complete

As the portrait is unconscious
of the Master's Artist's touch,
unaware of growing beauty,
unaware of changing much,
so you have not guessed His working
in your life throughout each year,
have not guessed the growing beauty,
have not sensed it, Mother dear.
We have seen and marveled greatly
at the Master Artist's skill,
marveled at the lovely picture
daily growing lovelier still,
watched His brush strokes change each feature
to a likeness of His face,
till in you we see the Master,
feel His presence, glimpse His grace.
Pray the fragrance of His presence
may through you grow doubly sweet,
till your years on earth are ended
and the portrait is complete.

~Ruth Bell Graham

In memory of a woman who has gone on to her heavenly reward and whose earthly life of 87 years will live on as a shining testimony to every follower of Jesus Christ.

Blessings with tears,
