Celebrate your special people

Mary Graham

I share a home with a wonderful person named Ney Bailey. We’ve lived together since 1976. At first, other friends (who also worked on the leadership team with Campus Crusade) lived with us but, in time, they all married and moved away. So Ney and I kept living together “until one of us married.” So far, it looks like we’ll live together long enough to participate in one another’s burial!

Years ago, when Ney turned fifty, I wanted to take the opportunity not only to celebrate her life and worldwide ministry but to do something tangible. It took a lot of sneaking around on my part but on the night of her 50th birthday, our home was filled to overflowing with family members, lifelong friends and/or colleagues in ministry from around the world.
