Way Back When-sday, Esther 2

Standard

Esther and friends

Yikes, photos of my maternal Grandmother, Esther, are few and far between….Here she is with her church ladies group, in front of the Ossineke Methodist Church.   What a conglomeration of fashion statements and styles.  I love this photo!  My grandmother is in the first row, on the right.  She was not a nurse, ever…that I know of.    I wish I knew more about this photo.  But I do know that my grandma Esther was a gentle Christian woman.  I treasure her bible, and feel a connection to her when I open it to find her notes, underlines and prayer list.  And I feel the influence of her quiet faith, and her giving spirit.  I returned to Ossineke a few years ago, only to find that this little church is no longer standing.   Sigh. 

Today, Mr Linky does not seem to be working.  So, how about just posting a comment here, letting us know that you have a Way Back photo to share this week.

  1. I was searching online for photos of the Ossineke Methodist Church and your blog photo came up. I love this photo. I grew up at this church. My grandparents lived behind it. My grandmother (second one from Esther), great grandmother and great aunt are in this photo. I shared this photo with my mom. She remembers all these ladies and your grandmother. Thanks for the memories!
