Dear Mama

Dear Mama

She never forgot a birthday. Once she knew a person’s birthday it was totally entrenched in her brain. She liked to sing old songs and talk about good days gone by. She loved her kids….. a lot! The She that I speak of is my Mom. She passed away almost 2 years ago, to all of our surprise. Her transition was  peacefully completed in her sleep. I often think of her and smile. I was blessed to have such a beautiful person in my life. She was far from perfect, yet who she was, is far more important than who she wasn’t.

She raised us the best she knew. I am the baby of all my siblings by 8 yrs yet most of my memories of childhood were simply of her and I.

She made me a backyard “carnival” for Halloween one year. It was complete with a apple bobbing station and pony rides(our dog)! She made weird ice cream sandwiches out of light bread and vanilla ice cream(Truth!). She would give away fried chicken to trick-or-treaters. We would take trips out of town on the Greyhound bus just to get away for a while. When I welcomed my first child at a young age, she opened her arms and heart to accept and forgive me.

She was always there. Now she’s not. I miss her dearly, but I know she’s with Jesus where there is no more pain or sorrow and where joy abounds. This Mother’s Day is one of happy remembrance for me. One of sweet reflection upon yesterday with a cheerful expectation for today that nourishes a hopeful future. Happy Mother’s Day to you Dear Mama!

    The fact that you have memories of just the two of you shows how good she was at loving you each individually. There is nothing better on earth than a good mother.

Prayer Of Salvation

Dear Father,

You love me so much that you have opened my eyes to the truth. You gave your only begotten Son to die for my sins and the sins of the world. Whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

Today I repent of my sins and I openly accept your free gift of salvation through Christ Jesus. I believe and confess that Jesus is Lord and I believe in my heart that You raised Him from the dead. I ask you to come live within me, I am yours. Amen
