where I am. Don’t worry about me. I shall be here when
I get back,” and he departed.
The man took the train to Athens where his mother
still lived. With every bump of the track, he relived im-
ages of his childhood—of his mother—of his father—of
the scenes of home. Departing the train station, he made
his way back to the grand old house where his mother
waited. After the initial embrace and loving greeting, he
told his mother that he wanted to be home with her for a
few days. He wanted to just be her little boy again.
During those days, Henry’s mother, with loving
hands, cooked his favorite foods. At night she came to his
bedside and tucked him in and prayed for him as she had
over her little boy in the years departed. Again, Henry
Grady prayed by his bedside as he had learned as a boy.
On Sunday he went with her to Sunday school. The chil-
dren sang “Shall We Gather at the River?”
Henry Grady covered his face with both hands and
cried like a child. 1 He needed this visit. In those two
weeks, Henry Grady went back to his mother—and to his
God. He needed to be back where he could be himself
and would be judged by no one―to the place of begin-
nings. Retracing those steps of early years refreshed his
spirit and soul.
