Mom & dad wedding

I wanted to share some of my mom’s writings; eight years ago, she went Home to her eternal rest. I hope and pray that she love, self-worth and peace that she could not find in this life. She was very in love with my step-father at the time she wrote these poems. He didn’t love her as much! The above photo was/is my parents on their wedding day 59 years ago! I wish it had been happier for them! Nobody can deny that she had a way with with words! I will see you when my time comes at the feet of Jesus! Until than, I love and miss you everyday! I hope you know now that there is always hope! This poem below is about my brother

Things I Have Learned Being A Mom

1. I still miss my own Mom just as much as ever. I wish there were visiting hours in Heaven.

2. I don’t stop being concerned just because she is grown.

3. My love is unconditional.

4.  I understand God better.

5. I can’t be both a Mom and a Dad since Barry died last year. I am not good at it.

6. I can’t keep her from making mistakes.

7. I can never say too many prayers for her.

8. I love her more and more each day.

9. She was my dearest SURPRISE I will have in life.

10. I still am learning to be the best possible mom.

11. As much as I want to be, she will NEVER think that I am a funny person!

A New Mom So Long Ago

LOL, I had to edit this because I used too many syllables!

 

I am so sorry

that I might cause a slight bit

of your discomfort.

 

A tired Mom I was,

with a brand new babe because

God blessed us with her.

Looking Up- When There is Nowhere Else to Look to be Okay!

When 2019 began, my message was about looking up!  I didn’t know at the time that I would have to do that so much. Just over a month later, my husband went Home to his rest eternal. My husband and I were very close. His passing made me more curious about Heaven and just what he might be doing up there. Of course, I received no definite answers to my questions. But, I did get closer to God in this process. I have had the wrong impression of Him. When I was little, I used to think of Him as a stern, corrective and rather joyless Father. My thought was that He could not wait to show us our mistakes, keeping a tally of each one. I felt as though God spent most of the time being greatly disappointed in everyone, especially me!

However, I am starting to really understand the grace given to you and me by His death on the cross and resurrection. None of us really deserve His love and grace, but we get because He is not only a kind and loving Father, a Dad, but an understanding friend. Grace is defined as “The love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us/me to have it, not necessarily because of anything we have done to earn it.”  Another lesson that is finally sinking in is that getting into Heaven has nothing to do with our/ my own own good deeds. Good deeds come from wanting to please God and a desire to be like Him.

I don’t want to cram my beliefs down the throat of anyone, I am just sharing my thoughts with you, but I hope it is helpful to you. With the Covid-19 going on, so much is beyond anyone’s ability to control it. Some also say that the days of the U.S. being the most powerful nation in the world are few now. That is why we don’t appear in the book of Revelations. There is much talk about the New World Order, perhaps, there is truth to it; some signs are there for sure. In the meantime, I will put my hand in the hand of the Man from Galilee! I would rather think positive, especially since Barry is no longer here to lean on – not in the physical sense anyway. So why not look up and ask for His Help and protection. Let me know what you think!
