MILESTONE: Dorothy Sue (Dottie) Wright

Dr. Dorothy Sue (Dottie) Wright was born Nov. 14, 1936, in Oxford, Miss., and died Jan. 14, 2014, in Searcy, Ark. Dottie was many things: a professor, scholar, missionary, writer, poet, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, mentor and friend. Retired professors of French at Harding University, Dottie and her husband of 54 years, Dr. Winfred Wright, influenced many in the French-speaking mission field.

Cross Roads
At every crossroads, prayer has brought a sign
From God to show which way He willed be mine.
Although I often grumbled at His choice
And tried to reason with Him, I rejoice
That I’ve been blind enough by faith to trust
And make reluctant feet wade mud, tread dust
When best. Those feet are toughened now and strong
For walking, be my journey brief or long,
To that divergence where, my sure sign come,
The humble path revealed shall lead me Home.

 — Dorothy Wright
