She spoke to the good and worthiness inside of the broken and hurtful, helping them to believe better of themselves. She worked, spoke, and lived in integrity and elegant simplicity. She encompassed and carried with her a radiant, easy, unadorned beauty. Mary shared generously from her storehouse of wealth-the invaluableness of a patience tempered through time, the immeasurable kindness of a soul familiar with struggle, the precious wisdom garnered in fellowship with the Father's still, small voice, and the love of great price acquired through her submitted life to the One who stands near her now.
