In Apples of Gold by Nina Gaus1 Comment



She was going to be all that a mortal could be —

No one would be kinder nor braver than she—

A friend who was troubled and weary she knew
Who’d be glad of a lift and who needed it, too;
On her she would call and see what she could do—

Each morning she stacked up the letters she’d write —

And she thought of the folks she would fill with delight —

It was too bad, indeed, she was busy today,
And hadn’t a minute to stop on her way;
“More time I would have to give another,” she’d say —

The greatest of workers this woman would have been —

The world would have known this had she ever seen —

But the fact is she died, and she faded from view,
And all that she left here when living was through
Was a mountain of things she intended to do—

Nina came to know the Lord as a teenager, and is grateful for the Lord’s grace and mercy in her life as she has sought to grow in her relationship with Christ through the years.

She and her husband currently attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and enjoy being a part of the ministries there. Along with being a wife and homemaker, she is thrilled to be able to teach music lessons to a number of piano students in the area. Poetry and meditational or motivational writings based on scripture have also remained one of her passions through the years!
