“I’ve never done anything I am ashamed of.” Those words were once spoken by my sweet mother who is celebrating her 100th birthday today.
Eulala Williams was born tenth in a family of eighteen children to Felix and Evie Lee Bryant of Clay County, Alabama. She grew up and married Grady T. Williams from Elba, Alabama, and lived with him 55 years until his death. Together they had three children – Hoyt, Herschel, and me. Mother became a Christian when she was 11 years old.
As my brother once commented, “Mama never had a pity-party.” Eulala Williams’ positive outlook on life, and a strong desire to go to heaven, continues to set an excellent example for my two brothers and me, as well as others who know her.
As a teenage girl, I prayed to marry a preacher. God answered my prayer. Douglas and I will be married 56 years on December 18. He has been preaching the gospel since before we were married. We have two children and two grandchildren all of whom are faithful members of the church. God is so good. I love Him so.
