Ron and Florine, especially in their later
years, would read together from Living Faith, a daily Catholic devotional.
Even while Ron spent his last few months in a care facility the tradition continued: Bible verse, several paragraphs of commentary, a handful of supporting Bible selections.
On the day of Ron's death - April 19 - the title for the day was "Letting Go". with the selected verse" "Jesus said to her, 'Stop holding on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father.' (John 20:17)
While the supporting verses told about sending a child off the college, the day's selection spoke volumes to Florine and her family of 'letting go' of Ron. "It was a Holy Spirit moment," she said.
God loves to speak to His children as believers, if we will but listen.
There was a handful of listed Bible selections at the bottom of the day's entry. One of them was taken from Acts 2:36 - 41: "And Peter replied, 'Each one of you must turn from sin, return to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; then you also shall receive this gift, the Holy Spirit. For Christ promised him to each one of you who has been called by the Lord our God, and to your children and even to those in distant lands!' (verses 38 -41)
"Thank You, God, what You are so knowable!"
