Hebrews 13:2 “do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”
Sometimes you just don’t recognize people who are disguised as “Angels”. They look like you and me and are always saying or doing something good for others! It’s easy to think of Sallie Bolin (1906-2003) as one of those Angels.
Sallie and her husband were residents at Asbury Place in Maryville since 1984. Sallie went to her eternal rest in 2003. Recently, I talked with her daughter Ann Meyer from Maryville. One of the stories she shared was that when Sallie would go to the doctors office, she would cheer up everybody in the waiting room telling wonderful stories about Asbury. “Have you ever been to Asbury? Oh! What a wonderful place to live. All my friends love to sing songs like ‘five foot two, eyes of blue’ and I dance the Charleston, but my all time favorite is ‘I’ll Fly Away’, I can’t wait to see heaven!”
Sallie was truly an Asbury Angel and wrote many Godly poems for all of us to enjoy. I am grateful to God that Ann shared such a beautiful story about her mother. Ann and Herb Meyer are members of Fairview United Methodist Church in
Maryville as was Sallie.
At Asbury, you never know how many Angels are Undercover. Sallie loved living here and we dearly loved having an ANGEL on our Campus.
