Happy Mother's Day Part 1
Good morning everyone and happy Mothers day!
This is just a quick note to start the day, and first pay tribute to my angel Mother. Our boys are coming over later today, and I have more I want to share in part 2.
My Momma....... was so much more than a mother to me; --she was my friend... and even my next door neighbor. Her house sits 5 acres from ours and a path was worn between them.
We did life together .... and even went to the same church. The photo above is one of my favorites. She was healthy, happy and in God's house.
The video I shared yesterday of the kids talking about needing their Mom's to point them to Christ, puts a lump in my throat. Because the closer my Momma got to leaving for heaven; the more and more she pointed me to Christ. Her relationship with Jesus grew so much... and she unashamedly lived for Him until stepping into His kingdom. --Those last days; I started feeling her detaching from me.... but clinging to HIM. (Thanks Mom.)
Thanks for teaching me WHO to cling to.
Thanks for teaching me to draw nearer to Him.
Thanks for teaching me to praise Him no matter what my circumstances are.
Thanks for teaching me that life is a gift and to always choose LIFE.
Thanks for teaching me to worship Him with all my heart...charm bracelet tinkling and hands raised high.
All that I am or ever hope to be... I owe to my Angel Mother. ~Abraham Lincoln.
If Roses grow in heaven
Lord please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my Mother's arms
And tell her they're from me
Tell her I love her and miss her
And when she turns to smile
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile
Because remembering her is easy
I do it everyday
But there's an ache within my heart
Because I'm missing her today
Happy Mother's day.
