See if you can guess this week's featured Sister! She got married in 1963 and has 2 children. She was saved at the age of 14 and has never regretted it! Her favorite Scripture is Psalm 91:4-6 (hint: feathers, feathers, feathers).

Now, for those of you who were attendees at Vicksburg, you have probably guessed her by now. Did the "feathers" give her away? Sister Wilma - our featured Sister - shared a story about a woman who was being attacked and all she could think to say was "feathers, feathers, feathers" in reference to Psalm 91:4 "He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge." This is one of Sister Wilma's favorite Scriptures.

Sister Wilma was born July 20 and is a housewife/caregiver. She grew up in and around Vicksburg. "God has brought me through malignant melanoma and sent someone to take care for Sheree when I couldn't."

Something funny Sister Wilma remembers is a time the ladies from the church went on a shopping trip to Memphis. She had found a beautiful piece of material and made a skirt. In her words, "I thought I was styling." As they walked through a Penney's showroom, she found proof that she was styling. This picture of her proves it! "We all got a laugh," she said.

Many of you have told me over time how much you respect this wonderful woman of God. If there were one word to describe her, it would be dedicated. She is dedicated to God, her church, and her family. Not one of us has to do what she has to do in order to go to church, yet she is always there. Not only does she always come, she has a smile on her face and something positive to say.

Sister Wilma, we all love and admire you from the depth of our hearts! ...oh, and Happy Birthday a few days early!

  1. Don't we all love Sister Wilma. She is such an inspiration - her ability to do so much and still love the Lord no matter what comes her way. I am proud to call her my sister in law although she feels more like my real sister. She is a true blessing and keeps me laughing and yes, I was there that day when we found the comforter to match her "styling" skirt!!!
