We could appreciate grandpa’s love for that car but his desire to give it to the Grace Chapel left us confounded.
‘That chapel is one thousand miles away?’
‘How do we take it there? We can’t drive it; it may not survive the journey.’
‘Carry it on a trailer.’
‘When I was a little kid, mother carried me to that church every Sunday; even when she was sick…….. certain that, with His grace, someday I would go there on my two feet……… I did.......on my eighth birthday.’
More than the words his eyes left us speechless.
