A gracious lady...

In 1973 the Army moved us to Oahu, Hawaii, where we lived for almost 5 years.  We attended a small church on the North Shore and it was there that I met a wonderful lady, Helen Tanaka.  She played the piano for the church and was also my Sunday School teacher.  I always admired her faithfulness to be there every Sunday.  Helen was always so sweet and kind to us.  We moved from Hawaii in 1977 and shortly after that I began sending her a subscription to Guideposts.  She continues to enjoy this magazine and when she finishes reading it shares it with the ladies in her Sunday School class.  Twice a year she sends us surprises from Hawaii. We are always excited to see what the package holds and are never disappointed with her choices.  A few days ago a package with a thank you note arrived. 



Helen is in her 80's now and still teaches a women's Sunday School class.  I thank the Lord for this gracious lady who continues to serve Him and continues to bless our family with her friendship.
 I want to be like her
