I Miss My Mom

Happy Mother's Day!

I sure am thinking of my own Mom right now. I miss her terribly. In July it will be two years since my sweet Momma' went to be with Jesus.

Some days I am strong and well in tune with life and death and how we were created as finite beings with the old three score and ten - or was that four score and ten - life span? Nobody has to tell me that death is inevitable and life does go on. I know that. But other days I feel as weak as a kitten and struggle to understand why loved ones have to suffer and die.

Then I remember God's plan. I remember how He promised that He would never leave or forsake us. I also remember that Jesus said in John 14:1 - "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in Me. In my Father's house there are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am..."

Although I miss my mother, I know I will see her again one day and I am hoping that we can have a room very close to one another when I make it to the pearly gates.

Meanwhile, tomorrow, when I celebrate Mother's Day with my own beautiful children and their precious families, I will treasure the moment and etch it deeply in my heart. I thank God that I was spared some more time to realize my blessings and gather more memories.

And I will think of my own mother...and sip a cup of tea in her honour...she did love her tea...I love you Mom xxx

My Mom will spend time with us today, but I sure do miss my Dad. I'm grateful that I will be able to see him again. Hang on to the promises! Christ's promises! Happy Mother's Day to you and your family.
