I have the best Mom in the world! It is important that she felt loved and celebrated today. She is caring, courageous and strong. She has incredible artistic ability coupled with a deep faith and a passion to use her gifting to honor God. She has a huge heart that can not stop caring regardless of what is happening around her. But I think you all know that about my Mom; I think Mom's heart has a lot to do with why you're here reading this blog, caring for us and praying for us. I know Mom has touched so many people.
Mom's love has been the rock in my own life. Despite all the chaos that was going on at home as we were growing up and the turmoil in my own heart, I have always known that my Mom loves me. She expresses her love in very tangible ways, like lots of wonderful hugs and kisses. Her prayers also have carried me through. Whenever I would go to Mom with a problem she would always turn to her bible. If I was scared, it was Psalm 91:1-5 and I learned that God could carry me. When I was questioning life, Mom would turn to what is most likely her favorite book, Isaiah, and share some of God's promises with me. Promises that God had given her as she was praying for me and my sisters which she had claimed and then continued to pray over us. There is a legacy of faith that Mom is passing on to us and I am forever grateful for that.
If Mom has touched your life in some way that you would like to share, feel free to leave a comment here, or to send her an email or message via facebook.
The bible has some things to say about doing good works in secret, not letting your right hand know what your left hand is doing. I don't mean for this to be an opportunity to glorify Mom, I think she would want the glory and honor to go to God, rather an opportunity to speak blessing and encouragement into Mom's life by affirming how she has used her gifts to bless you.
Thank you once again for walking with us.
