"Love may be the matter that keeps the stars in the firmament.
It may be. Love allows you to be tough and tender.
Love affords you the ability to be courageous."
Happy Mother’s Day to all nurturing hearts that
demonstrate the power of unconditional love.
“Know therefore that the Lord your God, is God;
Probably one of the most difficult journeys I‘ve ever taken was my faith journey with my husband and son. This wasn’t just another intimate moment at the dinner table or a ride through the park; this journey was to a place I knew nothing about. Relocating to Virginia has been more than just a physical move it became a spiritual journey as well.
I am grateful that God kept my mother anchored when she faced hardships, especcially when my brothers and I needed her so much, when she couldn’t always lift up a prayer.
She didn’t topple over when life’s disappointments came. She continually assures me that when difficulties arise, “This too shall pass.” I marvel at my mother’s inner beauty when I think of her, speak with her and happily gaze upon her warm face. This retired English Teacher enjoys her friends and family, loves sharing books, a good scrabble game, watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. If there’s a challenge she has a word for you! Spirits are lifted with her genuine loving words of encouragement. In turn, I realize now I can confidently share with my mother the gift she 's easily provided me and my siblings to:
- WHOLE HEARTEDLY EMBRACE OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,
- HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE,
- CONTINUALLY DEMONSTRATE A FAITHFUL LOVING SPIRIT,
- STRIVE TO MAINTAIN AN ENDURING LOVE,
- TUCK IN OUR HEARTS SCRIPTURES-THE SWEET LOVE OF THE LORD,
- FOCUS ON GOD'S PROMISES AND
- RECALL & REMEMBER THE POSSIBILITIES OF GOOD ARE INFINITE!
